If Telegram undoubtedly surpasses WhatsApp in something, without the possibility of any discussion, it is in functionalities. It is an absolute irrefutable truth.

The blue messaging application, a direct rival to the Facebook platform, regularly includes all kinds of extremely interesting features, such as the one that we discover in this article: the possibility of scheduling messages to be sent just when one of our contacts has connected.

When our contact connects, the message will reach him. As simple as that.

If yes, good news, you can carry out the process that we explain to you.

The message in question will appear, like the rest of the programmed ones, in the corresponding section which we can access from the calendar icon with a red dot that will appear on the right side of the chat text box.
