    Is there a limit to the number of channels that you can mute? I muted 3 channels successfully but I can't seem to mute any more.

    Don't think this works in the android client?

    Muting is all nice and dandy, but people I know will still expect an answer, even if that is NOT convenient for me at such a time. Led me to remove a bunch of people and leave a bunch of servers too. Its annoying to have to deal with all channels and friends at all times instead of being able to manage my status and their expectation for an answer.

    Not being able to manage my status to certain groups of people I need to keep in contact with, outside right clicking the Discord icon in the tray and choose "quit discord" is pretty crude.

    Muting a channel does not disable text to speech. It just don't give you notifications. Is that even normal ?

    @Towelie that's intended. To disable Text to speech, you'll have to adjust your user settings > notifications.

    Is there a way to turn off Text to Speech on the muted channel? That one channel is spammy and I want to silence it, but all of the other channels I'd like to hear what's going on even without it being selected.

    @Mary hmm not at the moment. We can look into it! It'd also help us a bunch if you could upvote over at feedback.discordapp.com, too. =]

    I'm having trouble with my notifications. I seemed to have muted all servers I am on on my iPod and want to turn on certain channels for @mentions (for the sake that I may receive messages unrelated to me while working) but nothing seems to work. Do I have to log out and then log back in for it to work? I hope not. Please help me figure this out.

    @uyki-sama1014 You shouldn't have to log in/out for notifications settings to take place. In your notifications settings, you'll find another option to "suppress @here/everyone" mentions. As long as this is turned off (not enabled), you'll get specific mentions just fine.

    I wish muting a server/channel also muted text-to-speech, it can get really annoying on a busy server.

    @Rustee you can control TTS in your user settings > notifications tab. Or check out the TTS 101 article here: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/212517297-Text-to-Speech-101

    Is it possible to get all desktop notification toasts, but only receive message sounds from Friends and Group DMs? Also is there a way to move where on my screen Discord's notifications pop up? I don't like having to mute Discord when servers are active, but the toasts will block things in the lower right corner. My taskbar and Rabb.it's chat box for example.

    @Tyler Sadly, not currently possible, but could you help me to make those features a reality by voting it up at feedback.discordapp.com?

    Is there a way to mute a text channel for everyone in the server? So for example, I have a music bot in my discord server and created a separate text channel for it. Every time I play a song, I don't want everyone in the server to receive notifications, especially if I'm spamming it for a queue. Also, I still want everyone to read the text channel if they want to add a song also.

    @Marcus Currently you will only be able to mute the channel notifications for yourself on your end, but if you'd like to see changes to the notification system, I'd vote it up at feedback.discordapp.com!

    What if i just wanted to silence the annoying beep sound when someone sends a message? But keep what hasn't been read and stuff so I know where i left off at next time i look at the discord app. I'm trying to watch a show and hearing the ba beep sound all the time is annoying. I also notice the Ba beep sound when someone sends a message even when my laptop is put in sleep mode with lid shut.
