Discord Support Is Coming to Xbox
Xbox has announced via a blog post that the long-hoped-for Discord update is here! The update will begin rolling out today for Xbox Insiders offering Discord support to Xbox consoles with the update rolling out for other players in the coming weeks. As you normally do on the Discord app, you will create a voice channel that will let you and your friends connect and it will be open to players on PC and the mobile app.
Players will have the ability to link their Discord account with their Xbox account and Xbox offers these instructions on how you can enable Discord chat on your console. Check them out below:
- Open the Xbox guide, go to Parties & Chats, and then click Try Discord Voice on Xbox.
- Scan the QR code, and it will take you to the Discord and Xbox apps. Set up a two-way link between your Discord and Xbox accounts.
- An option to Join on Xbox will appear on the Discord mobile app. You’ll also need to download the Xbox app to transfer your voice chat from Discord to your Xbox console.
- Once the transfer is complete, you can go into a voice channel to chat with friends using Discord.
As cross-platform gaming continues to bridge the gap between friends who just can’t seem to convert one another to their favorite console, in-game chat seems to be a nuisance that many players have to deal with when playing cross-platform. Some games’ in-game chat support isn’t as strong as others and it can really cut into the enjoyment of playing with friends. This new feature is sure to help avoid some of those hurdles to ensure players enjoy their time playing alongside friends.
