Some of the sources you follow in Feedly are broader than the topics and trends you care about. That additional noise can add up and become overwhelming or result in you wasting precious time.
In this article, we’ll show you how to use Feedly AI Mute Filters to mute keywords, companies, people, topics, authors, sites, and more.
Let’s get started!
Want to avoid a spoiler about Game of Thrones until you have finished reading all the books or tired of hearing about Pokemon Go or the latest Apple monitor?
You can train Feedly AI to mute specific keywords and remove all mentions of those keywords from your feeds, temporarily or permanently.
Note: with Feedly AI Mute Filters, you no longer need to use quotes around phrases with spaces. Feedly AI will take care of converting the input into the right query.
Curating content to share on Social Media and want to avoid mentions of your competitors?
You can train Feedly AI to mute each of your competitors and automatically remove all the articles mentioning those competitors.
Want to avoid articles about specific celebrities, politicians, or executives?
Creating a Feedly AI Mute Filter for a celebrity, politician or executive will automatically remove all the articles that mention that person from your feed.
Following a broad source like TechCrunch, Wired and Forbes but don’t care about topics like gaming? Or following a keyword alert for a public company but don’t care about financials or market reports?
With Feedly AI Mute Filters, you can mute topics and increase the focus of your Feeds. Leo ships with 1,000 pre-trained topics.
Don’t like a specific author from one of the sources you follow?
With the author: operator, you can train Feedly AI to look for specific authors and mute all the articles from that author in your Feed. (Sorry Katherine, we actually love your work!)
Mute title patterns
Want to remove articles which have a specific keyword in their title?
With the title: prefix, you can train Feedly AI to look for a mention of a keyword in the title of the article and mute the matches.
Finding some of the sources referenced in Google News Keyword Alerts irrelevant?
With the site: prefix, you can train Feedly AI to mute specific sites from your keyword alerts.
Forever or temporarily
When you create a Feedly AI Mute Filter, you can specify a duration.
Once you have trained Feedly AI with a Mute Filter, you can easily remove, pause or resume that filter via the Train Feedly AI page.
Like with all the other Feedly AI features, it was important for us that you always feel in control and can continuously refine your Feedly AI as your needs evolve.

You can also highlight any snippet of text and mute that phrase

Are there limits to the number of Feedly AI Mute Filters a user or team can create?
The number of Mute Filters you can use is determined by the plan you are on:
- Pro+ plan – 25 terms per Feed
- Business plan – 200 terms per Feed
Note: The “All Personal Feeds” option counts as 1 Feed in terms of these limits. You can have 25 or 200 terms on this feed, depending on your plan.
Can a Mute Filter target a specific source?
No. Mute filters can target a list of sources (what we call a Feed) or all your Feeds.
