How to schedule WhatsApp messages
- You can use third-party apps to
schedule WhatsApp messages.
- Scheduling messages allows you to remember to send birthday and anniversary messages to your friends and family.
AdvertisementWhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps and offers a lot of features for users. However, it is still missing some important aspects — one such example being message scheduling.
While WhatsApp message scheduling is not an official feature, there are third-party apps that allow you to enable this feature. This allows you to schedule messages and send them after some time if you wish to avoid someone at a particular time or do not wish to send the message immediately.
If you do not remember birthdays and anniversaries, spending a few minutes to schedule messages on WhatsApp won’t get you in trouble for forgetting someone’s special day.
