This is new. Post scheduling for brand pages on Google Plus has been available for a while, but Google’s API didn’t allow scheduling to personal profiles. Unless you count Do Share, a Chrome extension which, when I tested it, would only fire off posts when my machine was running and logged in at the scheduled time.
