How To Deafen On Discord Mobile

Your Discord friends don’t have to hear your conversation as you get in touch with someone else on Discord. Deafening them blocks them from listening to you.

Quick Answer

Open your Discord, head to a server, go to a voice channel, choose the members you wish to deafen, and check the “Server Deafen” option. But you’ll need administrative powers to deafen anyone on a server. You can also deafen yourself if you don’t want to hear other members in the channel.

Deafen is a resourceful button on Discord mobile. We’ll learn more about deafening and how to use it on Discord mobile.

Deafen on Discord

Did you know that Discord allows users to use voice as they interact with their friends on Discord? While texts and chat can be thoughtful, voice sessions are more stimulating. You can hold voice conversations via a server.

Servers have a voice channel feature that lets server members talk audibly instead of tapping their keyboards.

The voice channel has features that let users control who can hear or participate in a “voice” call. Discord understands that you may wish to be a part of a Voice Channel but stay away from specific voice conversations.

Discord got you covered by giving you the “Deafen” button. You can “Deafen” yourself or other members. When you “Deafen” yourself, the button blocks you from hearing random chitchats on a Voice Channel.

You get to be a part of a server without necessarily enduring all the voice chats on the server.

You can also prevent others from hearing your voice by deafening them. It will prevent them from hearing you talk on the channel.

Do I Deafen or Mute Myself?

Many Discord users can’t differentiate between muting and deafening on Discord.

When you open a voice channel, you’ll see the “Mute” and “Deafen” buttons beside your username. One prevents others from hearing you on a voice channel. The other one prevents you from listening to other Channel members.

The “Mute” button will stop others from listening to what you’re saying if you “Mute” yourself.

The “Deafen” will not let you hear what other Channel members say. The “Deafen” button resembles your ordinary headphones, while the “Mute” button takes the form of a microphone. 

So you can always use the “Mute” button when you wish to keep certain information from a group of people on the server. It will block them from hearing your voice.

How To Use the “Mute” Button?

Deafening yourself also mutes you. But you can tap the “Mute” button (headphones icon). 

You’ll not hear from a Channel member when you “Mute” them. However, other channel members will hear the person talk.

Does Discord notify them when I deafen someone?
