How to join a private voice chat in discord?

If you find any private channel on Discord, it will be difficult for you to take entry into the channel. Entry into the private channels is subject to Admin’s permission. Admin privatizes their channel in such a way that only the selected roles have access to access them. If you are not one of them, you have to seek permission from the admin to access the private voice channel. There can be too many reasons for the channel to get privatized but joining it depends only on one factor which is Permission. If you are permitted, you can access the private voice chat, and thereafter you can join it. 

To join the channel once you have got the access:

  • Click on the Server list
  • Go to the Voice Channel and Join it
  • You can also leave the channel by clicking on the desired option to disconnect

How to join without being seen?

There are no ways by which you can not be seen upon joining the voice channel. Once you enter the channel, the channel members can see you joining in and they can wave at you to pop in to talk.
