Now Schedule Text Messages & Send It Later: Google Messages
- Google recently announced a new Android phone feature that allows you to schedule text messages later on.
- You just need an Android 7 or higher phone (this version is about 5 years old and is therefore likely to support your phone), and the latest Google Messages.
Google recently announced a new Android phone feature that allows you to schedule text messages later on.
For instance, this allows you to first wish a happy birthday to your friend at midnight or send someone a message later before you forget what you wanted to say.
It’s easy, it’s easy. You just need a phone running Android 7 or later — the release is about five years old so that your phone is probably supported — and Google messages the latest version. Here is what to do.
Note: If you are a SMS Organizer user, you already have it since last 2 years.
How to schedule a text on your Android phone
- Download the latest version of Google Messages (you may already have it if you don’t see an update available).
- Open Google Messages on your Android phone and choose who you want to send a message to.
- Create your text.
- Tap and hold the send button (instead of just tapping it).
- A schedule menu pops up. Choose when you’d like to send it — either later today, later tonight, tomorrow, or date and time in the future.
- Tap send.
That’s it. Once you have sent it, you will see a confirmation that it is a scheduled message that will not arrive until your date and time is set. To update, send or cancel the message, tap the clock icon next to the message.
