Make Datetime appear on hover in Matlab plot


I am kind of new to plotly and have been trying to make matlab graphs using the the Matlab plotly_offline.

If I make a plot in matlab having a datetime X values, on hover they appear as datetime numbers not as formatted time (as they would in Matlab on hover).

You can see this behaviour in the Matlab Api Documentation here: Time series and date axes in MATLAB, just hover on any plot. Therefore I am not including MWE, because any from the docs works. However at the very last plot, they use DateStrings and it works on hover as I would want it to but they do not use fig2plotly but a plotly() command, which does not work in matlab.

Any ideas how to get the desired behaviour?

Anyone? I thought plotly was popular but the discourse is not as active as I imagined.
