Reddit began rolling out a new community muting feature on its mobile applications Wednesday, aimed at giving Redditors more control over their experience on its platform.

When a user mutes a community, that community’s posts will be removed from their notifications and their Home/Popular feeds, including Home feed recommendations.

The feature is starting out on Android and iOS, with plans to roll it out to desktop, as well as to other surfaces on the platforms, including All, Discover and the Full Bleed Player.

Redditors can still comment, post in and view communities they’ve muted, as well as reverse their decisions at any time in the settings menu.
