Discord was acquired by Sony but Microsoft was the first to offer voice channel integration for Xbox.
Microsoft today released the November update. It includes some new functionality.
This means that users don’t need a smartphone to communicate with one another, making it much easier to play different games across different platforms and maintain communication.
Xbox One Series X/S and Xbox One Series X/S users will be able to connect to Discord audio channels right from their consoles.
After you have connected your Discord account with Xbox, go to Parties & Chats and choose the Discord option. Here you’ll see all available servers. You can then choose a channel.
Before you sign up, you can check the servers of your friends. While Discord has been acquired by Sony, Microsoft was the first to integrate voice channels into Xbox.
Discord is expected to integrate deeper next year, however.
It is also possible to ask a friend to play the same game you are playing. This was previously done via the Happening now page.
Another function is to start live broadcasts on Twitter or Lightstream, as well as Streamlabs.
