It’s possible to schedule texts on an Android so you can send them when it’s most convenient.

  • You can schedule text messages on an Android using Google Messages or Samsung Messages.
  • If the scheduler is not available on your version of Google Messages, you might need to opt into its beta program.
  • There are many third-party message apps with a scheduling feature, including Do It Later and Pulse.

If you want to delay a text – perhaps to avoid sending it in the middle of the night and disturbing the person who is unwise enough not to have their phone set to Do Not Disturb mode – it’s easy to schedule it for another time. And you can do this no matter what version of Android you have, though in some cases it might require using a third-party app.
