You can schedule text messages on an Android using Google Messages or Samsung Messages.
If the scheduler is not available on your version of Google Messages, you might need to opt into its beta program.
There are many third-party message apps with a scheduling feature, including Do It Later and Pulse.

Not every text message needs to be sent the moment you write it. If you want to delay a text — perhaps to avoid sending it in the middle of the night and disturbing the person who is unwise enough not to have their phone set to Do Not Disturb mode — it’s easy to schedule it for another time. And you can do this no matter what version of Android you have, though in some cases it might require using a third-party app.
