Xbox Will Be Getting Discord Integration

Xbox is final­ly bring­ing built-in Dis­cord sup­port, and Xbox Insid­ers will be the first to try it out, fol­lowed by every­one else at a lat­er date.

Select Xbox Insid­ers will be able to use this Dis­cord inte­gra­tion lat­er today (July 20th). The announce­ment post notes it will “expand to more in the com­ing weeks.” Xbox Insid­ers cur­rent­ly has the release notes up, which include more spe­cif­ic details.

Play­ers will be able to “chat with any­one on Dis­cord via voice chan­nels or group calls direct­ly from your con­sole mak­ing it easy to con­nect with friends across mobile, Xbox, and PC.”

While play­ing some­thing on con­sole, play­ers can see who’s on with you, and who’s speaking–same as if you were using Dis­cord on mobile or PC. You’ll be able to adjust the sound, as well as switch between Dis­cord Voice and Xbox game chat.

The post also notes that you’ll have to re-link your Dis­cord account to your Xbox account in order to use the ser­vice. If your talk­ing on mobile and you touch the new option, Join on Xbox, you’ll also need the Xbox app to trans­fer voice chat from Dis­cord to Xbox.

Dis­cord sup­port on PlaySta­tion start­ed ear­li­er this year, leav­ing the Nin­ten­do Switch one of the only con­soles to not have adopt­ed Dis­cord in any form. This also means Xbox and PlaySta­tion play­ers will be able to talk to one anoth­er eas­i­er while play­er coop­er­a­tive cross-play titles.

PlaySta­tion also invest­ed in Dis­cord last year, though it was not a major stake in the com­pa­ny. The chat ser­vice appears to have no inter­est in being bought out, with a report cir­cu­lat­ing that Microsoft con­sid­ered acquir­ing Dis­cord last year for around $10 bil­lion.
