Tech Tip: Here’s how you can schedule your email in Gmail


Picture this- You are getting late for your flight and at the same time you need to drop a very important mail to your boss. What do you do? Do you take the flight or miss it for the email. Thanks to Google, Gmail now has a really cool feature that will let you schedule your emails so that you don’t miss a flight just because you had to drop an email.

Google on the occasion of Gmail’s 15th anniversary had announced some new updates for Gmail one of which is the schedule email feature. The mailing service, just like the Facebook scheduling post, allows you to schedule your email so that you do not have to worry about sending emails at odd hours.

Previously user had to use a third-party ad-on to schedule mails in Gmail. Google has now added an easy-to-use scheduling feature to help user schedule emails. The feature is available on both desktop as well as mobile app version of Gmail.

Here’s how to use the Gmail’s schedule email feature on desktop:

— Compose an email.

— Once the email is drafted, you click on the arrow button seen next to the send button.

— Select the time or you can pick any date and time when you want your email to be delivered.

— Click on Schedule send. You can also undo your scheduled emails just like the normal emails.

If you are using the feature on your mobile phone, follow the same steps except you need to click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner of the screen instead of arrow. That’ll show you the option to schedule your email timing.
