With Gmail’s new feature Schedule Send, you can schedule the exact time and day you want your email to be sent. Simply select one of the quick options or pick a specific date and time you want your email delivered! The Schedule Send feature is part of APU Gmail, which is part of the G Suite Apps and is free to use.
For more advanced features, you can also use Right Inbox. However, we feel that for most people Gmail's built in Schedule Send works perfectly and doesn't require a browser extension. If you like the new Schedule Send, you can <follow these instructions to uninstall the Right Inbox extension> so you don't get confused between the two.
