How Do I Disable Talking on a Discord Server?


Scott Campbell

Do you find the constant chatter on your Discord server distracting? Are you looking for a way to disable talking so you can focus on the important discussions?

Look no further! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of disabling talking on a Discord server.

Step 1: Accessing Server Settings

To begin, navigate to your Discord server and locate the server settings. You can find them by clicking on the dropdown arrow next to the server name at the top left corner of your screen.

Step 2: Modifying Permissions

Once you have accessed the server settings, click on the “Roles” tab. Here, you will see a list of all the roles available on your server. Locate and select the role that you want to disable talking for.

Note: Keep in mind that if you want to disable talking for all users, you will need to modify the default role settings.

Subheader: Editing Role Permissions

After selecting the desired role, scroll down until you find the “Text Permissions” section. This is where you can customize what actions are allowed or restricted for users with this role.

Subheader: Disabling Send Messages Permission

To disable talking on your Discord server, simply uncheck the “Send Messages” permission. By doing so, users with this role will no longer be able to send messages in text channels.

Step 3: Save Changes

Once you have made all necessary modifications to the role’s permissions, don’t forget to save your changes by clicking on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page.


You have successfully disabled talking on your Discord server. Users with the chosen role will no longer be able to send messages in text channels. This can be particularly useful when you want to create a quiet and focused environment for specific discussions or events.

Note: Remember that this method only disables talking in text channels. Users with the role can still participate in voice channels and interact with other elements of your Discord server.

Thank you for following this tutorial. We hope it has been helpful in achieving your desired level of peace and quiet on your Discord server!
