Finally, it is here—ability to schedule your email is officially available to all users on desktop. The feature, which was earlier announced by the world’s largest email service, has now been officially rolled out to all users. That means you can compose an email and schedule it to be sent at a later date—and it is so easy and no rocket science.

Let’s just say you have an email that is required to be sent at a particular date; and due to your tight work schedule, you might not be able to remember when that time comes. All you have to do is to compose the mail, and schedule it to be sent at the exact date and time. Like I said, it is so easy and no rocket science.

Let’s get started:

Compose an email, click the arrow next to the send button on desktop, and choose from the different options that follow, which allow you to set data and time to send the email—it is that simple. Once done, you can click the “schedule” button and wait for the email to be sent automatically on the set date.

You can also edit an already scheduled email by heading straight to the left corner of your inbox where you will find a section called “scheduled.” There you will see the number of emails that have been scheduled earlier by you, click on the email you want to edit or cancel and reload it in case you want it scheduled for another date.

You can see from the aforementioned step-by-step approach that it is that easy, and only take a couple of minutes or maybe seconds. Now, it is your turn, avoid the rush; schedule your next email if the need arises.

“We understand that work can often carry over to non-business hours, but it’s important to be considerate of everyone’s downtime. We want to make it easier to respect everyone’s digital well-being, so we’re adding a new feature to Gmail that allows you to choose when an email should be sent. Just write your email as you normally would, then schedule it to arrive in your recipient’s inbox at a later date and time,” Jacob Bank Director of Product Management G Suite said in a blog post earlier in the month while announcing the new feature.,

Gmail was launched in 2014 with 1GB of free storage for every user at the time. Google took a different approach from what other services like Yahoo and Hotmail were offering at the time—built-in Google search right within the email service. This approach among many others attracted millions of individuals, groups, and organizations to the service.

As time went on, Gmail evolved into a more sophisticated email service that added a lot of innovative ideas and features. Features such as priority inbox, smart labels, spam filtering, Smart Reply, Smart Compose, nudges, and now “email scheduling”
