PC gamers have long used Discord to chat with their friends while gaming. Now Xbox owners will be able to do the same.
Microsoft has announced in an official blog post that Discord voice chat is coming to Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles as well . This has been coming for a long time, as Discord has been working on PlayStation 5 compatibility for some time .
According to the announcement , Xbox users will be able to chat with their friends on Discord using standard voice channels on a server or through group calls. This functionality will make it easier for players to chat with their friends cross-platform. Thus, they will be able to talk with friends who are playing on PC or even chat with people who are using Discord on mobile.
This will be great for games that allow cross-play and to stay in touch with your friends for free as well.
