Google is Toying with Scheduling Email in Gmail, String of Code Reveals

Gmail email scheduling is one feature that’s long been absent from the popular communication client but the wait might soon be over…

Google has brought a number of useful features to Gmail over the years (whether directly through the email client or via Inbox by Gmail). These include such tools as Smart Reply, as well as Smart Compose, bundling, snoozing, and so much more.

Now, it appears the search giant might add email scheduling. In an APK teardown of version  2019.03.03.238017425 by 9to5Google reveals a string of code which supports functionality.

Gmail Schedule Email Option Spotted in APK Teardown

The new Gmail email scheduling tool will ostensibly work for up to two minutes in the future to a maximum of “less than 50 years.” (There’s no explicit cut off time-frame in the latest test version.)

Additionally, people can cancel scheduled messages. Although, that option doesn’t seem to be available if the sender is offline.

Of course, the new Gmail email scheduling tool contains the ability to select a date and time.

Recently, Google introduced confidential mode for G Suite subscribers in a beta program. The company also expanded right-click options for its email client. Back in January, Google likewise began experimenting with strike-through and undo/redo options, as well.
