Discord announced today that it is finally adding voice chat integration to Xbox consoles.
The addition means Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One owners can talk to their friends in Discord voice chats from their consoles rather than using other devices.
In a press release, Discord notes that Xbox Insiders will be able to use its voice chat feature on their consoles starting today. As Discord points out, the feature has been widely requested by users. Previously, the company allowed Xbox owners to connect their accounts, but it could only be used to display information such as Gamertags.
Discord has also confirmed that Discord Voice Chat on Xbox will allow users to transfer their voice calls from the app (desktop or mobile) directly to their consoles using the Xbox mobile app. As you can see in the image below, the transfer process looks pretty straightforward.
The announcement of the Discord integration for Xbox came roughly seven months after the company announced that it was finally allowing PS4 and PS5 owners to connect their PSN accounts to their Discord profiles.
