Let $\Gamma$ be a countable (discrete) group and let $\varphi:\Gamma\times\Gamma\to\mathbb{C}$ be a (non-equivariant) Schur multiplier. See Chapter 5 of [2] for details. Assume that, for all $t\in\Gamma$, the function \begin{align*} s\longmapsto\varphi(st,s) \end{align*} is weakly almost periodic. Let $m$ be the unique invariant mean on WAP$(\Gamma)$; see Section 3 of [1].

**Question:** Is it true that the function $\psi:\Gamma\to\mathbb{C}$ given by
\begin{align*}
\psi(t)=m(s\mapsto\varphi(st,s))
\end{align*}
is a Herz-Schur multiplier on $\Gamma$? Can we estimate the norm of $\psi$ in terms of the norm of $\varphi$?

**First naive attempt:** By Theorem 5.1 in [2], there is a Hilbert space $H$ and bounded functions $\xi, \eta:\Gamma\to H$ such that
\begin{align*}
\varphi(t,s)=\langle\xi(s),\eta(t)\rangle,\quad\forall s,t\in\Gamma.
\end{align*}
This allows us to write
\begin{align*}
\psi(s^{-1}t)=m\left(r\mapsto\langle\xi(rs),\eta(rt)\rangle\right),\quad\forall s,t\in\Gamma,
\end{align*}
but I don't know if this can be expressed as a scalar product on a suitable Hilbert space.
