A quick text message from your phone is an easy option. But if you want to send the message at a specific time then how can you do it. Or if you would like to be the first to wish your friend or family member on birthday. Or if you’d like to send a text message, but maybe it’s too early, or a bit late in the evening. Or you may not want to disturb the person.  But waiting to send a text means you risk forgetting about it completely. Here is a way out, you can easily schedule the message on your phone for a later option. This can be done on an Android Phone and also on an iPhone.

Some Android users have a scheduling feature built into their default text message app. iPhone users, however, don’t have that option. But there are now multiple apps that let you do so. Here we bring some of the available options for scheduling text messages on iPhone and Android devices. We also have some other options for scheduling and automating text messages too.

Here is how you can schedule your messages on your phone:

How to schedule a text on your Android phone:

  • Download the latest version of Google Messages.
  • Open Google Messages on your Android phone
  • Choose who you want to send a message to.
  • Create your text.
  • Tap and hold the send button
  • A schedule menu will pop up.
  • Choose when you’d like to send it
  • Tap send.

After you’ve sent it, you’ll see a confirmation that it’s a scheduled message and will arrive at its destination on chosen date and time. Tap the clock icon next to the message to update it with new text, to send it immediately or to cancel it.

How to schedule a text message on iPhone:

A text message cannot be scheduled on your iPhone. There’s no built-in text message scheduling features for iMessage or iOS devices. You can download an app or third-party text message scheduling software. Or, you can set yourself a reminder using your native reminder app.

Use the iPhone Reminders app:

You can use iPhone’s pre-installed Reminders app. The Reminders app won’t send your text message at the desired time. You can write the message and set up a notification to send it yourself at the desired time.

  • Open the Reminders app
  • Tap “+ New Reminder
  • Give your reminder/message a title
  • Type and compose your text message as a reminder
  • Tap the calendar icon to schedule your reminder
  • Tap Done when you’re finished
  • Copy the message from your reminder
  • Paste your message into the Messages app on your iPhone
  • The App Store also has third-party applications like Scheduled or Later.

Some apps are free and others will require a fee to access advanced features. And a few options don’t actually send the text message you’ve scheduled; instead, you’ll get a notification to send the message yourself at the scheduled time.
