Discord Voice presents a new way to chat with your friends on your Xbox Series X|S console
Players who own an Xbox Series X|S console can now use the Discord Voice feature, which was previously only accessible to members of the Xbox Insider Program. On the Xbox Series X|S console, the Discord Voice client offers an alternative method for chatting with pals. When you link your Discord account to your console, you will be able to participate in voice chats with all of your groups, which is outlined in the official post on the Xbox Wire (opens in a new tab). You may do this while you are gaming on the couch.
The Discord Voice function was first made available to Xbox Insiders back in July. However, considering that it is now accessible to all Xbox players, it is obvious that the feature did not require significantly more time to bake. As a result of the integration of Discord Voice into Xbox, it is no longer necessary to use the native party chat functionality of the console. Because it can be used on both personal computers and mobile devices, you can talk to more people.
Even if you’ve already linked your Xbox-related Microsoft account, you’ll need to launch the Discord app on your Xbox and follow the on-screen instructions to link it. Only then can you get started. After opening Discord, navigate to the ‘Connections submenu by tapping the cog icon located in the ‘User Settings menu. Follow the on-screen instructions to link your Xbox and Discord accounts together by first tapping the Xbox logo that can be found in the section labeled “Connect your accounts.”
It won’t simply be a pleasant novelty to use Discord on Xbox; you’ll actually find yourself using it very frequently. By making your Discord groups accessible on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S, will increase the number of individuals you are able to have conversations with on those consoles. If you frequently participate in games with friends in a setting that allows crossplay, this is wonderful news. Let’s imagine you enjoy playing crossplay-enabled games like Fall Guys, Rocket League, or Call of Duty: Warzone, but the majority of your pals choose to use other gaming platforms. With the integration of Discord Voice, you’ll be able to start a party on your Xbox console, and others will be able to join it using the Discord app.
To this day, it remains a mystery as to why Sony was unable to get Discord integration on PS5 in the first place. Both businesses had joined together to form a partnership, which gave the impression that they were jointly developing a voice chat application first. However, now that it is available on Xbox, we can only hope that Discord will soon add its voice chat capabilities to both the PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch, making cross-play an even more fluid experience.
