Google Messages is Rolling Out a Message Scheduling Feature For Some Users

After rolling out RCS (Rich Communication Services), Google messages has now started rolling out more features including Scheduling Messages and letting users categorize conversations.

First spotted by a Twitter user @besaireddy, the new feature will now let you easily schedule texts in Google Messages by pressing and holding the Send button to bring up the new schedule message option.

Tapping on the option will open a new pop-up window with three preset schedules which are “Later today, 6:00 pm”, “Later tonight, 9:00 pm”, or “Tomorrow, 8:00 am”, you can also choose your own custom date and time by pressing the last option

Take a look at these screenshots:


All scheduled messages will show up in the chat with a clock icon next to them and “Scheduled message” written below.

The feature works with normal text messages and doesn’t require RCS and should roll out to more users in the coming weeks.
