Schedule Send in Gmail

Gmail schedule send

Google has released a great new feature in Gmail! You can now schedule your emails to send at a later date and time.

When this feature is available, you’ll see an arrow next to the Send button. Simply compose your email as usual and, instead of clicking Send, choose the arrow to schedule the send, and pick the date and time you’d like to deliver the email.

In addition to the arrow next to the Send button, you’ll see a new Scheduled folder in your Folders list. This allows you to see the messages you’ve scheduled and make any changes.

Google indicates it’s possible you’ll see the Scheduled folder appear in your account before the arrow is available. If this happens, it’s expected behavior and the arrow will follow shortly after.

Gmail Conversation View Threading Changes

Google is also making improvements to the way Gmail groups messages in conversation view. Previously, threaded messages needed either of the following conditions to be met:

  • A message is sent in reply to another
  • A message has the same sender or recipients, the same subject, and is sent within one week of an earlier message in the thread.

A new requirement will make sure an email’s Reference header matches the reference IDs of previous emails. This means that if you receive two emails from the same sender, that also have the same subject line, they’ll only be grouped together if the reference IDs match.
