How to schedule email and send it later on Gmail.

Gmail is a free email service developed by Google. Users can access Gmail on the web and using third-party programs that synchronize email content through POP or IMAP protocols.

As of April 2018,users stood at 1.4 billion.Gmail provides services in 105 languages .

And to a few updates that Gmail added to its service,is the schedule tool which lets you schedule Gmail emails to send on a specific day and time.

If you haven’t been using it, you’re missing out.This new tool is going to shield you from being the musically challenged skeptic who sends messages throughout the end of the week. This also means you won’t have to save the message as a draft and try to remember to send it later.

You can schedule emails up to 49 years in advance (a great way to say happy birthday every year).

Scheduling your emails to send later is useful when you:

  • Want to strategically send an email to arrive at a good time if your recipient is in a different time zone
  • Don’t want your email to get lost in the shuffle (e.g. like what happens if you send emails on a Friday night)
  • Want to look thoughtful (by sending an email for a friend’s birthday the moment you remember it) or productive (by blasting out emails at 8 a.m. on a Monday morning) 

Scheduling Gmail messages now works from your personal and corporate accounts, from both your phone and your desktop. Look for the arrow by the send button in the browser or the stacked three dots in the app.

Here’s how to get started.

From Gmail in your browser

When you’re done composing your email and you’re ready to schedule it:

1. Locate the dropdown arrow near the send button.

2. Click the arrow and then click Schedule send.

3. A menu will appear that lets you choose the date and time you would like the email to be sent.

4. Select the time and click Schedule send. A message box will appear in the bottom left corner that says “Send scheduled for…” where you can hit undo if you’ve made a mistake or view the message.

Thats all. Thats how you can schedule an email.
