Microsoft adds new Discord voice chat feature for Xbox beta testers
Will soon rollout to all users
Discord and Microsoft recently announced they would be making their new Discord voice chat available to Xbox Beta testers.
The Discord voice chat feature was originally an invite-only feature for Alpha and Alpha Skip-Ahead Xbox testers, but now an invite is no longer required to gain access to the feature.
A new Xbox dashboard update was released on July 26th, which included Discord voice integration. To utilize the new Discord voice integration, Xbox users will have to link their Xbox to their Discord account and then connect to a Discord voice call by using the Discord mobile app. Once the Xbox user connects to a voice call through the Discord mobile app, then they will transfer the call to the user’s Xbox console by using the Xbox mobile app.
At first, the process of setting up the new Discord voice chat feature may be a hassle, but once it is all set up, the Xbox user can easily connect to voice calls without conducting the process every time they want to use the feature. The new feature will be integrated into the Xbox dashboard area that has the Parties and chats feature.
As of right now, the Discord voice chat feature will only be available to Xbox Beta testers. We do not know when the new feature will roll out to every Xbox console user.
