The feature, which was made available for selected Xbox Insiders in late July, enables users to chat with anyone on Discord via voice channels or group calls directly from Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles.
The update lets Discord users connect across Xbox, mobile and PC.
Discord Voice is coming to Xbox
While playing on console, users can see who is in the call and speaking. They can also adjust the sound and switch between Discord voice chat and Xbox game chat.
To access the feature, players need to select ‘Try Discord Voice on Xbox’ from within the ‘Parties & chats’ menu.
They’ll then be asked to link their Discord account to their Xbox (or relink it if they’ve done it before). Microsoft has published a Discord Xbox Connection FAQ with further instructions on how to complete this process.
The platform holder rolled out an Xbox Series X/S update last week which introduced a party chat noise suppression feature. It helps remove sounds like gamepad clicks, breathing and background noises from parties.
Microsoft also kicked off a series of user tests for a new Xbox homepage, ahead of plans to launch it in 2023.
Xbox and Twitch are hosting an indie games showcase on Wednesday, which will feature updates on upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles including Metal: Hellsinger and You Suck at Parking.
