- 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.

Not every text message needs to be sent the moment you write it. 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.
