Daniel McCulloch, General Manager at Xbox Live has shared details on a new partnership between Microsoft and Discord bringing the community app to Xbox.
In the coming weeks, this latest collaboration will make it easier for gamers to connect and see what friends are playing across console and PC.
In response to feedback, you will have the option to link your Discord account to your Xbox account, making it easier than ever to see what your friends are playing. If you are playing Sea of Thieves on your Xbox, you can now choose to give your Discord friends the ability to see that and decide whether they want to hop on their Xbox and join you.
How will it work?
From Xbox One
As an Xbox Insider, starting soon in preview, you will also have the added option to link your Xbox Live account to your Discord account directly from your Xbox One, which will become available to the broader Xbox community soon. Open the Account Settings menu on Xbox One, and select “Linked social accounts.” Here, you will see a new option for linking your Discord account. 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.
Now it’s time to plug our Discord community for Complete Xbox – https://discord.gg/Cw6VRqx
