WhatsApp undoubtedly ruling the world single handed when it comes to an instant messaging service. Almost every smartphone user is using the WhatsApp for messaging today. The app is most effective, cost-free and instant communication channel which allows you to share information in just one click. Apart from the messaging WhatsApp also have other features which include media sharing, image sharing, document sharing and the latest story feature which recently acquired 250 million users.
But, still, there is one more feature which WhatsApp lacks is scheduling the messages. This feature is not much demanded by the users, but still important for some of us. Unfortunately, there is no inbuilt option to schedule the messages in WhatsApp but there is another way to do this.
To use the feature we need to install the other app as WhatsApp natively doesn't allow to schedule messages. We will be taking the help of third party app on Android. This app will act as an add-on in the WhatsApp and let you schedule the WhatsApp messages.
There are very few apps available in the Google Play Store that offers WhatsApp message scheduling feature and most of them are pretty bad. Out of all SQEDit is the only one which does a great work for the purpose. SQEDit not only allows you to schedule WhatsApp messages, but also schedule the emails, normal texts, Facebook posts, and calls. This app is also very easy to setup and use among all the apps available.
1.To use the feature, first you need to install the app SQEDit and after the installation launch the app. The app will ask you some accessibility permissions in order to schedule the messages.Grant the permission by tapping the allow button.
In case you accidentally skip the accessibility option then don't worry you can also grant the permission by going to Settings →Advanced →Accessibility →SQEDit, then grant the permission.
2.Once the permission is granted again launch the app and click on the WhatsApp icon.
3. Now you will see a window where you schedule your message by filling the details, choose the contact along with the date and time.
4. In the box, you can write the text that you wanna send.
5. You can also choose to send message manually from the option, in manual option, the app will remind you of the scheduled time via notification. The option is set at automatic by default and will automatically send the messages at the mentioned time without asking any permission.
6. Once you are done tap the ‘SCHEDULE’ option on the right top most corner of the screen.
Now your WhatsApp message is scheduled it will be sent in the scheduled time.
However, there one thing that you must know due to the security reasons of the Android the app won't be able to send the schedule message while the phone screen is lock. The Android security structure won let the app bypass the lockscreen to perform any task. Your smartphone needs to be unlocked to send the message automatically. In case your phone is locked the app will throw a notification about the message and the message will be sent as soon as you unlock the phone.
