Can I disable global/general chat?

I have literally no use for the global chat feature, as I am either going to play solo, or with my friends. All that I get from global chat is random people saying random things, so can I just disable it?

Note: This is not the same thing as “All chat” or “team chat” in matches. This is the global (probably regional or server based) chat that you are in between matches (in the lobby).


You can remove yourself from the channel typing /leavechannel general in the chat. If you are talking in general channel, you can just type /leavechannel

Right now, however, as soon as you restart Overwatch and sometimes when you leave a match you will rejoin the General chat channel automatically and will need to leave again.
