According to reports, Google is starting to roll out message scheduling to some users on the Google Messages app.
Google Messages has recently added a “conversation categories” feature allowing some users to sort messages using AI and machine learning. Now, another very useful feature is on its way. According to XDA Developers, users on Google Messages will soon be getting the ability to schedule messages on the app.
Twitter user @besaireddy, uploaded screenshots of the message scheduling feature, which, he says, has been rolled out to him in a server-side update. To schedule a massage, press and hold the send button while composing it.
Google messages schedule will show several options like “Later today, 6:00 pm,” “Later tonight, 9:00 pm,” or “Tomorrow, 8:00 am.” You can also choose a specific date and time to schedule.
Finally Google Messages added "Schedule message" 📅🕛 feature.

A scheduled message then shows up in conversations with a little clock icon next to the person you want to send it to. Tapping the message then shows you a popup with the scheduled date and time, and an option to modify, send immediately, or to delete it. A message will only be sent if your phone is not one at the time.
XDA found code in the Google Messages app APK that confirms the feature, but there is no indication when it might be rolled out to all users.
