How can I mute or leave a Chat?

Substack Chat is available on the web and the Substack app.

If you'd like to stop receiving push notifications for Chat on the Substack app, here are several options:

Turn off notifications for a publication for iOS

On the Substack iOS app, tap on a publication and select "Mute chat".


Select how long you'd like to mute the chat for: one hour, until the next day, or until you manually unmute the chat.


Turn off notifications for a publication for Android

Tap on a publication on your Chat dashboard and select "Mute".


Turn off all notifications for Chat on the Substack app

Tap your Profile icon and select the Settings gear in the top-right corner. Tap Notifications.

For iOS

On your Notifications, make sure that the toggles are on the left for each item listed in the Chat section. You will not receive any push notifications about Chat.


For Android

On the Notifications screen, move every toggle in the Chat section to the left. This means that Chat notifications will stop immediately. 


To leave a Chat

At this time, the only way to fully leave a Chat is by unsubscribing from the publication. 

For iOS

On the publication's page, tap the three dots in the upper-right corner. Select "Unsubscribe".


For Android

Sign into your Substack account on the web and follow these steps.

Tip: Once you unsubscribe from a publication, it will not appear in your Library or your Chat.
