Write now, send later with "Scheduled Send" in Gmail

What’s changing

You can now schedule your emails in Gmail to be sent at a later date and time. We’re launching this feature on Android, iOS and Gmail on the web.

Why you’d use it

Just write your email as you normally would, then schedule it to be sent at a more appropriate date or time. This gives you greater control, allowing you to shift your work time to wherever and whenever is most convenient to you and your recipients. Additionally, it’s even easier to collaborate globally, allowing you to work across time-zones while still respecting everyone’s digital well-being.

How to get started

  • End users: When drafting an original email or reply in Gmail, you’ll now see an arrow next to the “Send” button.
    • Clicking this arrow now gives you the option “Schedule send” option.
    • After clicking “Schedule send”, you can pick the specific date & time you’d like the message to be delivered.
