For the new users, Discord may seem like an overwhelming platform due to the variety of features it offers.

As the platform has announcement channels, invitation links, and even secret sounds, it's natural for users to ask numerous questions about its usage.

Yet, Discord is not complicated at all. In fact, once you get the hang of it, you will be surprised at how user-friendly the messaging platform is.

Anyhow, one of the most commonly asked questions by Discord newbies is whether or not the platform sends notifications once they leave a group chat.

With the newest feature introduced by Discord, users can now leave group chats without notifying other users, which was a big concern up until now.

How to leave Discord group chat without notifying anyone.

  1. Right-click on the group chat that you want to leave and select 'Leave Group' from the menu.
  2. You will see a prompt saying ‘Leave without notifying other members’.
  3. Check the box and click on ‘Leave group’.

What happens when you leave a Discord group chat?

Leaving a group chat on Discord means that you won’t be able to participate in the conversions.

Additionally, leaving a group chat will prevent you from joining the group calls. Also, you won’t get notifications on the messages that arrive in the chat.

Bonus: What happens when you leave a Discord group chat?

The short answer is that you will be removed from the members’ list, you will lose your role in the servers, and you won’t get notified about the new messages in the server.

In terms of notifications, members are not getting notified about other members leaving the group unless there is an installed bot in the server that will notify the users.

Most users find these notifications annoying, especially if they're part of larger servers where multiple users join and leave every day.

Multiple Discord users pointed out this problem on Twitter, Reddit, and on Discord’s support forum.

This is valuable feedback for anyone considering building their own community on Discord, to keep in mind that this feature is better to be turned off.
