Microsoft has long worked with Discord to streamline the audio experience for Xbox users. All the hard work the two companies put into the project has finally paid off, as Discord Voice is finally available for all Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles.
In his official blog to post, Microsoft said Xbox users can now chat with anyone on Discord via voice channels or group calls directly from their consoles. With Discord Voice support, it’s now possible to see who’s on the call and who’s talking while you game on your console.
The new Discord Voice integration also supports switching between Discord Voice and Xbox game chat while playing games. It will also be possible to adjust the sound. The setup process is quite simple: all you need is the Discord mobile app.
To use the Discord Voice feature, you must link your Discord account to your Xbox account from the Discord mobile app. This step is required even if you have already linked accounts, as Microsoft explains. Once paired, you can join any Discord voice channel or call and beam it to your Xbox.
In the official blog post, Microsoft also thanked Xbox Insiders for their valuable feedback on the development process. Finally, the software giant also promised to bring more Discord experiences to Xbox in the future. Details about these new experiences and their launch date are under wraps. Of course, we’ll keep you posted on any new features Microsoft brings to Xbox in the future.
