How to Schedule Texts on Android

You can finally use the standard Android text messaging app, Google Messages , to schedule your text messages. This long-requested feature is being rolled out as a server-side update to all Google Messages users, which means you don’t need to download anything to use it. However, the schedule option is tucked away in a hidden menu, so here’s how to find it:

How to schedule texts in the Google Messages app

  1. Create new text in google posts.
  2. When you’re ready to set the delivery time, press and hold the Submit button to open the text details menu.
  3. The menu includes several pre-arranged delivery times to choose from, for example “Tonight, 6:00 pm” and “Tomorrow, 8:00”. (If this is your first time using this hidden menu, you can also add a subject line or mark the message as Urgent.)
  4. If you want to choose a more accurate time, click “Select date and time”.
  5. Set the day and hour when you want the text to be sent.
  6. Click “Save” to confirm the delivery time.
  7. When the delivery time expires, Google messages will send the text automatically.

Unsent scheduled texts appear in the conversation thread, but there is a clock icon next to them. If you decide to cancel or edit scheduled texts, open the conversation and tap the unsent text. From there, you can delete the message or change the sending time.

Don’t worry if you don’t see the new schedule options in Google Messages yet. Google, so to speak, does not flip switches for everyone at the same time. Some users will have to wait a bit for the scheduler to appear, but keep trying. Fortunately, there are still other ways to schedule text messages on Android .
