Xbox is adding Discord voice chat

Microsoft has announced that Discord voice chat is coming to Xbox consoles.

Starting today, selected Xbox Insiders will be able to chat with anyone on Discord via voice channels or group calls directly from Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles.

Microsoft said the update, which will enable Discord users to connect across Xbox, mobile and PC, will roll out to more users over the coming weeks and be available to everyone soon.

While playing on console, users will be able to see who is in the call and speaking. They’ll also be able to adjust the sound, and switch between Discord voice chat and Xbox game chat.

To access the feature, players need to select ‘Try Discord Voice on Xbox’ from within the ‘Parties & chats’ menu.

They’ll then be asked to link their Discord account to their Xbox (or relink it if they’ve done it before). Microsoft has published a Discord Xbox Connection FAQ with further instructions on how to complete this process.
