In today’s busy world we often forget to send important messages to someone at the right time. It may be some important information that you want to send to someone or it may be a birthday wish.
If you are someone who forgets to send important messages at the right time then you don’t need to worry about it. There are ways through which you can schedule messages on an Android phone. Once you schedule a message, it will then be sent to the recipient at your chosen time and date.
The beauty of Android is that you can do a lot of things that iPhone users can’t do. You don’t even need to root the Android device to try a lot of different things. In android, you will find multiple apps to do a specific task and these apps will have millions of views with good ratings on the play store.
Let’s take a look at how you can schedule a text message on an Android phone.
Use the Google Message app to send schedule messages:
Google Messages is a popular text messages app made by Google which now comes as a default text messenger on most android devices these days. If you don’t have it on your device then you can download it from the play store.
Open the messages app on your Android device.
Choose/select the contact you want to send the messages.
Type the message.
Now, tap and hold the SMS send button for few seconds.
A window will appear where you can set the date and time of the messages.
You can choose the schedule from the given option or you can make your custom schedule from the last option.
Once you set the date and time, tap on Save and then click on the send button.
Your message will now be sent to the recipient at the scheduled time.
It is the best way to send schedule messages on android phones as the Android messages app is supported by almost every android phone these days.
There are some other ways as well.
If you are a Samsung user, you can send the schedule message through the Samsung default message app.
Open the Samsung message. Select the contact and type the message.
Next, you will see a “+” icon before the send button.
Tap on it and you will see the “schedule message” option in the new window.
Select that option and choose the date and time on which you want to send the message.
Once you schedule the message, tap on the send button.
Your message is schedule now and will be sent at the time you select.
As mentioned above Android has multiple apps for one function. So there are some other third-party apps like textra SMS and Pulse SMS through which you can send schedule messages on android.
How to send the schedule messages on iPhone?
iPhone’s default message app “iMessage” doesn’t support the schedule message natively. But there is a way through which iPhone users can use this feature. You will find a “shortcut” app on the app store which is designed by Apple, download that app on your iPhone.
Then download the “delayed iMessage” from that shortcut app.
Choose the message date and time from the delayed iMessage shortcut and set the schedule message.
The delayed iMessage shortcut will be used by the iPhone user to send the scheduled messages on an iPhone.
