Currently always defaults to 08:00 AM, is it possible to adjust this time to always say something like 06:00, for instance?

To customize the snooze times go to Google Keep in the same account, open Settings (gear icon at the top right), and edit the times from there. Verified working with G Suite as well. Make sure to reopen your Gmail tab after saving the settings.

  • Did you make sure to save? Have you refreshed / reopened the Gmail tab afterwards?

  • I made the changes, then reloaded my gmail tab. Change didn't take effect. Commented Mar 14, 2019 at 14:09
  • Didn't work on mine either. Made change, saved, then reloaded gmail in Chrome web browser. Snooze time unchanged. Tried again. This time hit Shift Return to reload without using cache. Commented Mar 14, 2019 at 14:13

It's not very intuitive - it can be changed from Inbox, not from Gmail, I think it's because the snooze feature is new in Gmail and they didn't renew the settings section yet.

So from Inbox:

  • Open Inbox ⚙ Settings (At the bottom of all labels)
  • Go to Snooze tab
  • Choose your hours

    enter image description here

Result, affected both Inbox and Gmail:

    Now that Inbox is going away, has Google announced how to do this from Gmail alone? I can't find it.

    Verified this is still a problem. Left complaints everywhere. If you have gsuite account, the most effective complaints are lodged in their private Gsuite feedback portal. cloudconnectcommunity.com/ccc/ls/community/g-suite/post/…

  • This doesn't appear to work for me -- I have different defaults in Inbox than in gmail.

    The Google Keep answer, above, works following the removal of Inbox

  • I think the good thing to do might be to delete this answer, now that it is no more relevant. According to this, you should keep the rep (if that matters), and you will also get a disciplined badge 😉

I also had this problem, and found that changing the settings in the Gmail app on my iPhone updated it online too:

SettingsYour AccountSnooze settings and editing the times in there!

Nowhere to be seen on Gmail.com, but the settings pulled across.

  • Confirmed that worked for me. One quirk is that I wanted to change the "Later Today" time and that's mapped to the "Evening" time for some reason in the GMail iPhone settings. Commented Nov 7, 2019 at 16:35
  • I don’t seem to find the Snooze settings, but it appears changing the Keep settings work. Could this be only on iPhones?
