There are various message scheduling apps for WhatsApp and other social networking apps, but how to schedule a WhatsApp message if you use it on a desktop or laptop? In this article, I am going to share a tutorial on how to schedule send messages to your WhatsApp contacts on PC.
Scheduling message helps users to avoid missing out on sending important texts and reminders to their contacts. It is especially useful for those who use WhatsApp for marketing. They can simply schedule messages to their customers for a specific date and time and make sure their updates and news reach their customers on time.
In order to schedule WhatsApp messages on the desktop, I am going to use a free web extension called Blueticks. It is a dedicated extension for the Google Chrome browser which enables you to auto-send messages on WhatsApp. Let’s check out a step-by-step process to schedule WhatsApp messages through this web extension.
Schedule WhatsApp Messages on Desktop
The basic steps to schedule a WhatsApp message on desktop are:
- Launch Chrome and add Blueticks extension to it.
- Open WhatsApp web interface in the browser.
- Schedule message using Blueticks extension.
Let’s discuss these steps in detail.
Firstly, install Blueticks extension to your Chrome browser. You can find this web extension on Chrome Web Store > chrome.google.com.
Now, click on its icon from the extension badge and then sign up or log in with your email address and password.
Next, open WhatsApp web in Chrome and log in to your WhatsApp account in the browser. To do that, open WhatsApp on your phone and go to the three-dot menu. From the menu, click on the WhatsApp Web option, and scan the displayed code. You will be logged in to your WhatsApp in the browser.
After logging into your WhatsApp account on the desktop, open a group or contact to which you want to schedule send your message.
Tap on the plus (+) icon that you see beside the message box. It will open up a Schedule a message dialog window.
In the Schedule a message window, type your message and select a specific date and time at which you want to auto-send your text.
Additionally, it offers a handy feature that enables you to schedule a WhatsApp message recursively. You can enable the Custom Recurrence option and then enter time interval (number of days) after which the message will be schedule sent recursively.
Plus, if you don’t want to send the scheduled message as soon as your receive a text from a particular contact, you can enable the Cancel when a message is received option.
When done customizing message, date, time, and other preferences, click on the Schedule Send button, and your message will be scheduled for a specified time.
If you prefer using WhatsApp on your desktop, you can easily auto-send messages to your contacts and groups using the mentioned steps above.
