No setting to delay sending text messages

Where is the setting in the stock messaging app to set a short delay (few seconds) before a text message sends?  In other models I've used this option and loved it. After I hit "send" it delays by a few seconds before actually sending so if I change my mind or see an error I want to fix, I can click on it and stop the message from sending. Can someone please help me find the setting for this on the S10 plus? Thank you!

Re: No setting to delay sending text messages

You would simply select the (+) sign in the messaging application and then select Schedule a  text message.

You can schedule your text message to send when you wish to have it send.

Hope this message finds you well.

Re: No setting to delay sending text messages

Thank you but no, I am not wanting to "schedule" a message.  There used to be a setting that allowed you to choose how long (few seconds - 1 to 5) before a text would send after clicking on send.  It was like a safety short timer in case you didn't mean to send yet or find an error in your text or whatever. You could click a button to cancel the send within that 1 to 5 second timeframe.  You hit send, but it actually waits the few seconds to send.  I cannot find that setting on this phone. Can someone please help? It's been on my other phones that were Samsung but all the settings are different on this one and I can't find it.

Re: No setting to delay sending text messages

SamsungZell - Is correct... He is asking "How" to set up a "Delay" in sending a text message.   Not how to schedule it.  To Schedule a text is totally different than to delay a text.  I have that same issue.   For example,,, if you notice you have sent a text message with a typo, etc., you can correct by clicking on the (x) that is seen on the left side of the message, which unsends your text.     I have discovered, (on the Samsung S10e),  there is something called, "Keyboard touch and hold delay", which is found by selecting Smart typing  in the Settings, but so far it is quite useless.  I have not figured out how to utilize it to delay from sending text messages.  If I do figure that out I will share with you.

Interesting. I went from the S8 to now the S10 and never knew there was such a feature or option.

Agreed! I used to have my delay set to 5 seconds and it was a huge help! I've had the S8 for a long time now and keep hoping with each update they'll bring it back!

Re: No setting to delay sending text messages

How about the S9plus is there a "schedule & delay" message option?
