Discord is a familiar communication platform in the gaming community. The service is compatible with smartphone and desktop versions. The major advantage of Discord is that it has a VoIP chatting system that you can use to communicate with friends while playing games.

Mute Your Friend on Discord
Instead of removing a person from your friend list, you can mute them to stop seeing the messages sent by them.
On your Discord mobile app, long-press the friend’s name on the Messages page and click on the Mute Channel option.
On the desktop version, open the chatbox of your friend and right-click on their name to choose the Mute option. You can choose to mute your friend for 15 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours, or until you turn it back on.
