Ideas can not be found anywhere, but sending text messages to loved ones early in the morning or during working hours is not always ideal, especially if they are muted Notifications. So you want to send a message at a better time to make sure it gets the attention it deserves. With Samsung Messages, you can do just that by scheduling the sending of messages at a later date.
Planning news is more than just sending text at better times. The feature is also perfect for greeting relatives on birthdays or anniversaries to make sure you never forget to greet those special people in your life. The process is very simple and you can automatically fire texts according to a set schedule, as shown below.
First, open the News app and select your chatziel. Enter your message as usual, and then tap either the "+" icon on the left of the message box (a UI) or the three-way menu button (Oreo) on the top right. Click on "Schedule message" and set the time and date in the displayed calendar.
Tap Done when you're ready to schedule the message, then click Send as usual. Text will be sent at the time and date you set. It's worth noting that this feature allows you to schedule messages up to a year in advance. This is ideal for special events, such as birthdays, to make sure you do not miss important data without relying on the memory alone.
If you quit Samsung messages for some reason before you had the option to send a text Schedule, it automatically saves as a draft and picks up where you left off when you reopen the app. In addition, you can schedule as many texts as you like and simply remove a scheduled text by long-pressing the message and then tapping Delete on the menu that pops up.
