The app would ask for accessibility permissions, tap on OPEN SETTING and you will reach a menu. Search for SKEDit and turn the toggle on. The app would ask for accessibility permissions to which you have to tap ‘ok’.

Once you are done with the access permissions, open your WhatsApp and choose the contact you want to send a message.

There are options for repeat sending the message with options like- no repeat, hour, day, week, month and year. You can check your scheduled message by tapping on VIEW SCHEDULE SUMMARY just beneath the repeat option. A time card would pop up at the scheduled time and date.

Skedit Options

SKEDit gives you 2 options; scheduling manually and automatically. Although automatic scheduling needs a compromise i.e. you have to disable the lock screen of your Android phone. However, if you manually schedule your posts, you would get notification prompts before the message is sent. All you need to do to manually schedule your message, tap the ‘Ask me Before Sending’ toggle right and you would get another option CHANGE NOTIFICATION SETTINGS beneath it. Tap ‘on’ for all the notification settings.

Now you would get a notification prompt before a message is ready to hit. It gives you an option to edit the message too.

Download SKEDit now on your Android phone and start scheduling the messages.
