Team Owners and Admins can rename any channel, but a member who created a channel can also rename it.
Available to teams on free and paid plans.
Rename a channel
Open the channel you'd like to rename.
At the top of the page, click the gear icon to open the Channel Settings menu.
Select Additional options.
Click Rename this channel.
Enter a new name, then click Rename channel.
Tap the channel name on the header to view the channel details menu.
Rename the channel and tap Done to finish.
Sorry, it's not currently possible to rename a channel on Android. Please stay tuned for updates! Sorry, it's not currently possible to rename a channel on Windows Phone. Please stay tuned for updates!
Note: Channel names must be 21 characters or fewer, lower case, and cannot contain spaces or periods.
Rename the #general channel
It's possible to rename your #general channel in exactly the same way, but only team Administrators and Owners will see the option to do so.
If you've renamed #general, all team members will still be part of the channel, regardless of its name, and new members will still be automatically added to it.
Note: The #general channel name is reserved only for that channel. You won't be able to call another channel #general.
