Discord is quickly becoming one of the easiest ways to chat, type and generally converse with friends and groups alike. Microsoft announced a new collaboration between the service and Microsoft devices, this will see console gamers chat even more easy with their PC friends.
A persons Xbox profile will be able to be linked to a Discord account allowing you to skip constant sign in pages, instead letting players jump into chat without interrupting their gaming sessions. Though if you are playing games on Xbox, you can allow your Discord friends to see what you are playing and give them the option to join you if your paying something like Sea of Thieves.
This feature will be rolling out soon via the Insider program, so this will be the testing stage basically before rolling out properly to the masses on Xbox One.
You will be able to find the option to link your account under “Linked Social Accounts” and add your own Discord from there. Once you receive your unique code from Xbox, open the Discord app and insert the code within the Connections tab.
From the Discord app on PC or on a mobile device, in the coming weeks you will see an option to link your Xbox account with your Discord account through the Connections tab under User Settings. Click on the Xbox Live option and sign in to your account. After enabling permission, your accounts will be linked.
