You read that right! Discord is coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles!
Xbox announced today that the popular communication service will be available in today’s update, making it easier for Xbox users to connect with other players across mobile, Xbox and PC. The update is only available for select Xbox Insiders today, but will be available in the near future for all players.
Now Xbox players will be able to chat in the app through group calls or voice channels directly from their console. Simply connect to their channel and you’re set! Players will be able to see who is in the call and who is speaking directly on their Xbox device. They can also switch between it and Xbox game chat and adjust volume.
How to set up Discord on Xbox:
Link your Discord account to your Xbox:
To get started, open the guide by pressing the Xbox button on your console, then go to Parties & chats and click Try Discord Voice on Xbox. You’ll see an option to scan a QR code. The QR code will take you to the Discord and Xbox apps to connect and set up a two-way link between your Discord account and Xbox. If you’ve previously linked your Discord account to your Xbox, you will have to re-link. To link your Discord account you must be at least 13 years old and other parental controls may apply. Learn more in the Discord Xbox Connection article.
Discord Xbox Account Linking Screen
Once your Discord account is linked to Xbox, you can hop in a channel you’d like to talk in using Discord just as you normally would. On the Discord mobile app, you’ll see a new option to Join on Xbox. At this point, you’ll need the Xbox app to transfer voice chat from your Discord account to your Xbox. If you have it installed, the Xbox app will launch and let you connect the Discord Voice chat to your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One console. Discord’s safety standards will apply when chatting on Xbox consoles with Discord Voice.Xbox Wire
