Scheduling a text on Android can be a useful feature, especially when you need to send a message at a specific time but may not have the opportunity to do so manually. Fortunately, there are several apps available that allow you to schedule texts effortlessly. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of scheduling a text on Android using one such app.

Step 1: Download and Install the App

To begin, you’ll need to download and install an app called “SMS Scheduler” from the Google Play Store. Simply search for “SMS Scheduler” in the Play Store, select the appropriate app from the search results, and tap on the “Install” button to download and install it on your Android device.

Step 2: Grant Permissions

Once the installation is complete, open the app. You will be prompted to grant certain permissions for the app to function properly. Tap on “Allow” or “Grant” when prompted to give SMS Scheduler access to your contacts, messages, and other necessary permissions.

Step 3: Compose Your Text Message

After granting permissions, you will be presented with a simple interface where you can compose your text message. Tap on the provided text input field and enter your desired message.


  • Keep it concise: Since this is just a tutorial message, keep it short and simple for demonstration purposes.
  • Add personalization: Consider adding some personal touch or relevant details depending on who will receive your scheduled text.

Step 4: Set Schedule Date and Time

Once you have composed your message, tap on the calendar icon or any other designated button within the app to set the date and time for your scheduled text. A pop-up calendar will appear, allowing you to select the desired date. Then, choose the appropriate time by scrolling through the time options or manually entering it.


  • Be mindful of time zones: Ensure that you account for any time zone differences if your message is intended for someone in another location.
  • Consider recipient’s availability: Schedule your text at a time when you know the recipient is likely to be available and receptive to your message.

Step 5: Confirm and Schedule

After setting the schedule date and time, review your text message one more time to ensure it is correct and free of any errors. Once you are satisfied, tap on the “Schedule” or “Confirm” button within the app to finalize and schedule your text.

Step 6: Wait for Delivery

Congratulations! You have successfully scheduled a text on Android using SMS Scheduler.

Now all you need to do is wait for the scheduled date and time for your message to be automatically sent. Make sure that your device has an active network connection during this period.


  • Avoid excessive scheduling: While scheduling texts can be convenient, try not to rely on it too heavily. It’s still important to maintain real-time communication when possible.
  • Edit or cancel as needed: If you need to make changes or cancel a scheduled text, open SMS Scheduler, locate the scheduled message, and use the provided options accordingly.

Scheduling texts on Android can save you time and effort, allowing you to send messages at the most optimal moments. With the help of SMS Scheduler or similar apps, you can now easily schedule texts and stay organized with your communication.
