Unsubscribe from a stream

If you want to stop receiving messages from a particular stream in Zulip, you can choose to unsubscribe from that stream.

There are two major ways to unsubscribe from a stream: unsubscribing from a stream through the Streams page and unsubscribing from a stream through the stream sidebar.

Unsubscribing from a stream through the Streams page

If you want to unsubscribe from multiple streams at once, you should unsubscribe from streams through the Streams page.

  1. Find the relevant stream on the Streams page. You can search for specific streams by entering the name of the stream in the Filter streams input.

  2. Click on the green checkmark to the left of the stream that you want to unsubscribe from. Upon doing so, the green checkmark will now disappear, confirming the success of your unsubscribing from the stream.

Unsubscribing from a stream through the stream sidebar

If you want to quickly unsubscribe from a single stream, you can do so through the stream sidebar.

  1. On the left sidebar, hover over a stream name to reveal a down chevron () to the right.

  2. Click on the down chevron () icon to reveal an actions dropdown. Select the Unsubscribe option from the actions dropdown.

  3. Upon selecting the Unsubscribe option, the selected stream will disappear from the left sidebar, confirming the success of your unsubscribing from the stream.
