    This feature doesn't appear for me. It seems pretty simple to do on my part. Does it still work this way or like so many of the visual guides is it already outdated and replaced by another way of accomplishing it?

    @DG This one's still pretty new. =] What platform are you on? Hiding channels isn't quite available on mobile just yet.

    I'm using the PC version on a Win10 64-bit OS. I'll add that trying this also doesn't work through the browser either (using Chrome).

    @DG How many channels are you attempting to mute? The prompt doesn't appear until you're trying to mute 4 channels or more.

    OK it works now. A couple of thoughts though...
    1) Consider updating the guide to point out the min # of channels needed to mute before this shows up...or have people read it here. =)
    2a) Consider removing the arbitrary min # of channels to have this feature show up (why 4??).
    2b) Consider allowing the Server Admins have control over the min # of channels required

    That's good to hear.
    1) Already done. =]
    2) thoughts passed on to dev dudes. Will take a look into it.

    The minimum limitation doesn't seem to make sense. I'd also clarify if this works for both voice AND chat channels, as you are currently only showing the text channels in your example.

    I want to be yet another supporter for the removal of the arbitrary minimum channel rule before hiding.

    My group of friends recently moved over to discord wand one of our first comments was "yeah seems great, but you can't hide channels". I tried to explore the ui pretty thoroughly to see what options were available, but because I was sitting with only 3 channels muted, nothing was available to me. This also leads to the ridiculous situation of creating and muting fake channels to make the option available when you wish to hide less than 4 real channels.

    I'm assuming the dev team wish to go for a cleaner interface freer of clutter. That's admirable. However, there's a difference between minimalist and lacking function. A car that only turns right can technically go left, but I wouldn't consider it simplicity in design to have that limitation.

    How about just being able to leave a channel

    @Ted Rockson you can't leave individual channels (you can leave servers, though). If you want to ignore a channel, clicking the button will mute all notifications.

    Is there anyway to hide 1 muted channel? The group I'm in only has 2 channels.

    @Khangaroo nope, the option only appears if you have 4 channels muted.

    @Kane No plans for that just yet, but it'd help us a bunch if you could upvote at feedback.discordapp.com!

    I don't understand why the ability to hide channels is tied to a specific number of hidden channels. How many channels there are has nothing to do with me wanting to hide one of them. Isn't this feature pointless if you aren't on a server with that many text channels (which a lot do not have a need for enough channels to where a user could mute four of them?)

    @angelar Sorry about that! While the mute/hide channels system is currently set up this way, If you would like to see changes to these systems in the future, then you can definitely vote up the suggestions at feedback.discordapp.com!

    This seems to be for hiding it from me. How do I hide a channel from other people?

    the 4 channel limit for hiding is plain silly. im on a server with 3 channels and two of them are dumb i never want to see.

    im on another server with like 12 channels and the two top ones are dumb admin only and i never want to see.

    please just show it for 1+ already.

    Can we get this on Android? It's probably more important to have this feature rolled out onto a device with less screen estate so as to fit more of what we want to see.

    Please bring this to mobile! I agree with Candy. Makes no sense that this hasn't been added to the app where there's typically less screen space.

    I'm with the above users—we NEED this for the mobile version.

    As mentioned before, add this functionality to mobile. It's a neglectful omission.

    Please bring it to mobile. It is causing issues on our server.
