(Updated) Schedule Send for Teams Chat MC427758 · Published Sep 8, 2022 · Last updated Jan 20, 2023
Updated January 20, 2023: We have updated the rollout timeline below to account for mobile rollout. Thank you for your patience.
As remote teams become more common and spread across multiple time zones, Teams is introducing the schedule send feature that allows users to schedule chat messages to be delivered in the future. With this feature, we can help build better work-life balance and support flexible schedules by scheduling chat messages so that they only deliver during our peer’s work hours. Users can schedule messages to be delivered both on desktop and mobile. Additionally, all scheduled messages can be edit and delete before they are delivered.

Updated January 19, 2023: We have updated the timeline and content below. Thank you for your patience.
The resource-specific consent (RSC) permissions model for receiving all message, originally developed for Microsoft Teams Graph APIs, is being extended to bot scenarios. This feature was available for the channel scope and now is being extended to chat scope. With RSC, conversation owners can consent for a bot to receive all user messages in standard channels and chats without being @mentioned.
