I already have my domain pointed to Digital Ocean DNS and now I want to change the A record between one droplet and another.

After I make the change on Digital Ocean DNS about how long will it take to update so that when I go to it will point to updated IP address?

If your domain is already pointed to the DigitalOcean nameservers the change will usually be near instantaneous but with caching on other servers that have the record it may take up to 30-45 minutes for the change to be reflected everywhere.
