Microsoft has revealed that it will make voice chat available for the Discord app on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S users.
According to an announcement made today by Xbox, Discord integration is heading to Xbox, starting with a small group of Xbox Insiders today and it will be available to all gamers over the next several weeks. Through voice channels or group calls, players will be able to talk with anybody on Discord right from their console, making it simple to connect with pals on Xbox, PC, and mobile devices.
Moreover, Discord acknowledged that the Xbox mobile app would enable users to immediately transfer their audio calls from mobile onto their consoles. For Xbox users, Discord Voice enables users to communicate with their friends and the community while playing their favorite games, particularly multiplayer titles like Halo Infinite.
How to access the Xbox Discord voice chat feature?
Setting up a voice chat and syncing your Xbox and Discord accounts takes some effort. Players must choose “Try Discord Voice on Xbox” from the Parties & chats menu in order to use the functionality. The Xbox mobile app must first be downloaded because you’ll be using your mobile to transmit Discord calls to an Xbox. The next step is to link your Discord account and Xbox account.
The guide says that you must reconnect them if you already linked them in order to accept voice access. After that, you can make a call on Discord, select “transfer to Xbox,” select an Xbox console using the Xbox mobile app, and you’re ready to chat with your Discord friends on Xbox anytime while enjoying the game.
The introduction of Discord integration for Xbox comes almost seven months after the firm said that users of PS4 and PS5 could at long last link their PSN accounts to their Discord profiles. According to Microsoft, this won’t take the place of the existing Xbox Party Chat system, but it will be an additional choice for people who prefer Discord.
