Telegram has a useful feature that lets you schedule messages for a later time. Here’s how to use it.
Have you ever wanted to schedule a message on Telegram? Maybe a reminder for an event, or an early message for a friend’s birthday? Telegram has a feature that can help you do that.
Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging service that lets you send messages, photos, videos, and files of any type to people around the world. But one of the features that Telegram has, which not many other apps have, is the ability to schedule messages for later.
This post will show you how to do so, and also give some ideas for when it might be useful.
What to Know About Scheduling Messages on Telegram
Scheduling messages on Telegram ensures your message goes out at a specific time so that it reaches the recipient even if you’re not online at the scheduled time slot.
Gone are the days when you needed to stay awake until midnight just to be the first person to send a birthday wish to your friend or relative. Or the days when you needed to pick up your phone every two hours to send your friend a reminder for your flight booked for later that day.
You can automate when your messages will be sent using Telegram’s scheduling tool.
How to Schedule Messages on Telegram
You can schedule a personal or group message several months in advance. You simply need to set a time and date for it to be sent.
To schedule a message, follow these steps:
- Open an existing chat or create a new chat with the recipient. If you’re scheduling a group message, open the relevant group.
- Type message content in the text panel.
- Tap and hold send button for two seconds.
- Click on Schedule Message.
- Scroll to your preferred date and time.
- Tap Send on [set date] at [set time].
You can view scheduled messages by tapping on the Calendar icon in the message panel. You can also edit or delete the message in the Scheduled Messages interface.
