WhatsApp supports media formats including images, videos, GIFs, and more. WhatsApp also comes with support for Voice and Video calling individuals and groups; Despite all this feature, WhatsApp doesn’t officially support the ability to schedule messages.

Highlights of the Story

  • WhatsApp is the most used instant messaging platform in the world right now and comes with an immense list of features including voice and video call
  • WhatsApp makes it easy to communicate with other users using just the contact number
  • WhatsApp officially does not support scheduling of messages, luckily there are a few ways we can schedule a message at a particular time to a particular contact using 3rd party apps.

WhatsApp is one of the most popular apps for instant messaging, it gained widespread popularity due to many features such as the ability to message users only with their phone numbers. WhatsApp comes with multiple features including the ability to exchange media including Images, videos, docs, and GIFs.

It also supports video calling and voice calling with users and groups. While these features add a lot of value to the app, there are some features missing in the application that constrains it from being a perfect choice for all users.

Luckily there are third-party apps that enable these features with ease, one such feature that is highly requested by users but is not available on WhatsApp officially yet is the ability to schedule messages on WhatsApp. This can help in ensuring that you remember to wish someone on their birthday or if you wish to message someone in during the work hours instead of disturbing them during the night.

Luckily, there are ways to schedule messages on WhatsApp in both Android and iOS, since this feature is not officially available on WhatsApp yet, they are both workarounds. Since the method is essentially workaround there are some limitations that we will cover in a little bit.

How to Schedule Messages on WhatsApp on Android and iOS

As we have already talked about above, WhatsApp doesn’t have an official feature to schedule messages yet, if you are using an Android Smartphone then you can schedule messages on WhatsApp using a third-party application.

There are multiple options as several apps offer this feature, in this guide we use the app called SKEDit that does the job perfectly and has a simple interface. Follow the steps below to easily install the app and proceed with the setup

How to Schedule WhatsApp messages on Android and iOS
  • Start the process by downloading the SKEDit from the Google Play Store
  • Once the app is installed successfully, launch the application, on the first launch you will be prompted to signup
  • After a successful sign in, you will have to tap on the WhatsApp icon in the main menu, this should open a new screen
  • In the new screen, grant permissions, tap on Enable Accessibility option and open the SKEDit section here, now toggle on the Allow switch and then return to the app
  • You will now be presented with a screen where you can add a recipient, enter your message, and then set the scheduled date and time. You can also ask it to repeat the schedules message if you want it
  • You will now have another option to select, “Ask me before sending” if you Toggle it on by tapping on the tick icon then your message will now be scheduled, whenever the day and time of your scheduled messages arrive, you will receive a notification on your phone asking you to complete the action, you can tap on the Send button and your scheduled message will then be sent
  • If you choose to keep the toggle off then you will be asked to disable the phone’s battery optimization settings, your messages will then be sent automatically without any input from you. You will also need to have your screen lock settings disabled which are a huge drawback and this is why we do not recommend scheduling the messages this way.
