Google is testing the ability to send messages regularly in its Google Messages app, which appears to be still being tested on a limited scale because it is only shown to some Google Users through the company’s server-side updates. To schedule the sending time of the message, the user needs to press and hold the send button, and then the interface will pop up the scheduling option, and the user can also choose to manually select the date and time to send the message.
The scheduled message appears in the conversation window with a clock icon next to it that says “Predetermined message.” By clicking on the booking information, the user can choose to edit the information and the scheduled time, send it now, or delete it completely. It is important to note that the message will only be sent at the scheduled time if the phone is turned on at that time.
According to XDA, the feature is already part of the latest version of Google Messages, and it’s only a matter of time before it’s available to everyone. This feature will be available for SMS and not RCS.
Google has also recently started to introduce information classification in its messaging app.
