Microsoft Adding Discord Connectivity Across Xbox One and Windows 10

Xbox Live parties and Discord chat aren't compatible in any way.

Players will now have the option to link their Discord account to their Xbox account, allowing you to see what games your friends are playing no matter whether they're on PC or Xbox. Citing the popularity of the Discord program that lets gamers communicate easily, the Xbox Wire announcement explained how the integration will work.

The announcement today from Microsoft stated that the goal of the partnership is to allow players to have an easier time connecting with each other online, even if they are playing on different devices.

The first trailer for Tom Hardy's Venom is finally here
There's no chance for this depiction of Venom to be mistaken with the look Topher Grace took in Spider-Man 3. After the first trailer dropped, " Venom " fans were enraged that the trailer didn't actually show Venom .

Microsoft's Xbox One has had trouble keeping pace with Sony's PS4 in sales and popularity, a fact that has driven the former to seek out more cross-platform opportunities.

In response to your feedback, you will now have the option to link your Discord account to your Xbox account, making it easier than ever to see what your friends are playing. On PC or mobile, Xbox Insiders will also be able to connect Discord directly from the Discord app via the connections tab under User Settings. From there, you'll be able to select the "Link" option to get a unique code from Xbox, which you'll then use in the Discord app's Connection's tab to link your accounts. It remains to be seen, however, if you'll be able to utilize Discord's chat functions going forward with these new linking tools, but that would make a lot of sense, more than simply having the ability to link together your usernames. Likewise, for PC users, you can add your Xbox Live account under the "Connections" section of Discord's settings from either the desktop app or browser version. You'll be asked to enable permission and when you do your two accounts will be linked.
