WhatsApp keeps bringing new updates to enhance users' messaging experience through its app. Amongst a number of features that users want on the app, an important one is the schedule WhatsApp messages feature. It is not available on WhatsApp. This feature allows you to schedule a message in advance so that you don't miss out on sending important messages on time, simply because you may forget. Schedule WhatsApp feature can be quite useful in ensuring that users do not forget to send birthday or anniversary wishes on time. Unfortunately, the instant messaging app doesn't have this feature for its users.

Schedule WhatsApp messages on Android

To use the Schedule message feature, you will need to use another way to solve the problem, which obviously means downloading a third party app linked to WhatsApp. Using other third party apps, you can use the schedule message feature on Android as well as iOS. One such app is SKEDit for Android users which schedules the messages in a simple way.
