How to schedule a text message on Samsung Galaxy S10, S9, Note 9 and other devices with One UI

Scheduling text messages is an incredibly useful feature that can make your personal and professional life much easier. Whether you need to reach out to a client who is in a different time zone or wish your loved ones at 12 midnight on any special occasion, this feature can be a lifesaver for you in numerous situations.

However, not all smartphones allow you to use this feature but you can definitely use it if you own Samsung Galaxy S10, S9, S8, Note 9, Note 8 or any other Samsung device. Many Android phones don’t have the feature by default. For examples, phones from Motorola, Nokia, OnePlus, etc. don’t have the schedule text message feature.
