    This is technically already possible with but having it done with a name would be nice.

    Voice chats can be mentioned (get their ID and send a message with this <#ID HERE>) though they don't get the redirect functionality, which is sad :c
    A similar thing happens with roles that are not technically "mentionable". You can mention them but not ping them, but you have to get their ID and send a message with this <@&ID HERE>
    It would be really neat to see those features added.

    Mentionable but not pingable roles suggestion: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360042839252-Send-mentioned-roles-that-are-not-mentionable-as-mentioned?page=1#community_comment_360006282171

    Apologies for the necro, but has this functionality been removed? Following the syntax <#VoiceChannelID>, I'm unable to get a redirectable link. It's just plain ole text. Any solutions?

    How do you get the VoiceChannelID?

     

    Nevermind Google lead me to the answer

    On Discord, open your User Settings -> Appearance -> Enable Developer Mode.

    Then right click the channel name.

    Hermes, that is not true, unless Discord has very recently messed something up badly. @ mentions are for users (<@I D> and <@!I D>, normal and nick mentions respectively), # mentions are for channels (<#I D>) and @& are for roles (<@&I D>). Mentions are managed by the API (in the sense that message payloads include three fields for these three types of mentions that contain mention objects which include the IDs for each mentioned entity) so I just checked the docs and I don't see any mention of voice channels not working. In fact, the channel mention object has a field for the type of mentioned channel which can be any type of channel, even DM related.
    In conclusion, this seems to be purely a client issue. Could any staff confirm or deny this?

    Hey all,

    Maybe this is out of the context for this issue, but when I thought of mentioning voice channels, I thought of the message showing up in the mentions for whoever is currently in that voice channel.  That doesn't seem to be the case, though.  At least I can't get it to work using either <@ID> or <#ID>.

    I guess I'm less concerned about a link to the VC, and more concerned about those particular users seeing the message.

    I did build a very simple Discord bot which can get the channel ID from the name, and then mention all the users that are currently in it.  I don't know if I'm allowed to post external links to github, though, so anyone can DM me if they want the link.

    Using the quick switcher, you can use "!" to get voice channels. This should be how you mention voice channels.

    You just have to type out <> too. Example: <#704854255944859678> works for me
    edit: It looks like it's mentionable when you're typing it out but it when you send it it will just look like plain text
