Discord Leave Voice Channel: Here’s how to?

Discord Leave Voice Channel: Hopping in and out of a voice channel in Discord is quite simple. There are no magical tips and tricks, just understanding which icons are for what and where to find them. If you’re having problems jumping out of a voice channel.  As it would prefer to stay in the channel but have it muted.


I’ll be intercepting both the desktop app as well as the app available for your device and tablet. This guide is targeted toward those who are already actively using Discord. If you would like to download or install Discord for yourself, a version is offered for WindowsMacAndroidiOS, and Linux operating systems.

Let’s start with how to leave a Discord voice channel using the desktop app.


You’ll need to be in a voice channel or a server and double-click any channel in the room with a volume indicator. So long as you have valid permissions, just logged into the voice server and channel.

Now that you’re in a voice channel, to leave it:

Step 1:

Under the channel names, you should see a box similar to this one.


Step 2:

The above-mentioned box provides a few bits of information. It will display that you are connected to the voice channel and provide a visual representation of your current call latency.  Also, it will have the server name followed by the channel name (server name/channel name). To the right, you’ll find the connection information icon (circle with an ‘i’ at the center) and the call connection icon (phone with an ‘x’).

Step 3:

The connection information icon will display you the region the discord server is currently connected to in real-time. Also, it will display the average ping rate you’re currently receiving from that server.

Step 4:

The call connection icon is for connecting as well as disconnecting from the voice server. You can tap this icon if you want to leave the voice server.

Step 5:

If you are still connected to the voice server, you can just swap freely between all voice channels. By left-tapping on one of the channels, you will be quickly moved from your current channel to the new one.


Certainly, you’re doing things in a voice channel that may secure you from leaving.  But you still don’t want to talk or listen to others talk. This is where the choice to mute.

Using a voice channel:

Step 1:

Firstly, below the info box discussed in the earlier section, you should see your personal box.

Step 2:

This box contains your avatar, your full Discord name, and three multiple icons to the left.

Step 3:

By tapping on your avatar, you can show your availability by selecting between one of four options:

  • Online: To indicate that you are readily available.
  • Idle: When you’re around but haven’t performed an action in awhile
  • Do Not Disturb: This option will also disable desktop notifications from Discord
  • Invisible: Renders you invisible while offline but still gives you full access
  • Microphone: Enables you to mute and unmute your microphone
  • Headphones: Also it’ll mute both your microphone and your speakers so that you hear no one and no one hears you
  • User Settings: Options that have nothing to do with the topic of this article

If you want to mute or unmute your mic, just left-click the Microphone icon. To deafen yourself, tap the Headphones icon.

If you’d like to mute or deafen the channel itself, and you have the proper permissions to do so:

Step 1:

Firstly, right-click the channel name and choose Edit Channel. If you don’t have a right-click, hold CTRL while tapping with the left (or only) mouse button.

Step 2:

From the menu on the left, choose the “Permissions” tab.

Step 3:

In the window to the right, just scroll to the “Voice Permissions” section and tap the green checkmark to the right of “Mute Members” to mute the channel, or to the right of “Deafen Members” to deafen the channel.

Step 4:

After selection, the Save Changes button pops up. Tap it to confirm.

To unmute (or undeafen) the channel, just tap on either the red ‘X’ or gray ‘/’ icon.


Certainly, you just don’t need to be bothered with all of crazy and would prefer to do away with the channel altogether. Easy fix, so long as you are the owner or a server administrator.

To completely delete a voice channel and forego the need to leave it, just:

Step 1:

Firstly, Right-click the channel you wish to remove.

Step 2:

From the popup box choose Delete Channel.

Step 3:

A popup dialog will ask if you’re sure. Tap Delete Channel once more to confirm.


Now know to leave a voice channel on the Discord desktop app, you want to know how to do the same on your phone or tablet. It’s just as simple as the desktop version but some have found it difficult to navigate at times.

Obviously, you want to already be actively engaged on Discord inside of a voice channel to follow along with the walkthrough. The screen situated as such that the name of the channel sits at the top and a list of those inside the channel with you, just below.

From this screen, you can do such things:

  • The menu to the right of the channel name will enable you to change the channel settings and the voice settings inside the channel.
  • Also, the triple dots menu to the right of your name will enable you to deafen or mute the server. You can also bring up the same menu just by clicking on your name.
  • At the bottom are four icons: Microphone icon for mute/unmute, Headphone icon for deafening, Phone icon for connecting/disconnect, and the fourth icon enables you to adjust your volume and swap to Speaker mode.

To disconnect from the voice server (and channel), click on the Phone icon. You can also select to click on the other icons resulting in their particular function. Swap to other voice channels by clicking on them from the channel list.

The confusion mentioned above stems from a user who has been either idle too long or swaps to a multiple application while currently connected to a voice server. When you return to the Discord app, the icons may not be readily available on your screen.

Step 1:

If you want to see your avatar and name at the bottom of the screen, just swipe left to pull up the channel.

Step 2:

From here, also notice a different box at the bottom of the screen detailing your connection, the channel name, and the server name. To the right of this information is a ‘^’ up arrow.

Step 3:

Tap the ‘^’ to pull up the voice channel and once again have access to the mute, deafen, disconnect, and volume options.
