Xbox fans have been dreaming of a streamlined Xbox-Discord experience for years, and it’s finally here. While the update is rolling out for Xbox Insiders first, it’s well on its way for Xbox gamers in the near future. Here’s how you’ll be able to set it up when the update fully releases.
Does Discord Voice Chat work on Xbox?
On Jul. 20, 2022, Xbox released a blog news post announcing that Discord voice chat would be getting an update to support the voice function on Xbox. Xbox Insiders get the update on Jul. 20, 2022, but other users have to wait until some undisclosed time in the near future (as of the time of writing).
One of the biggest portions of this update is the feature where players will be able to toggle Discord features within the Xbox button overlay. This means players won’t have to actually leave their game to adjust the volume or other factors. We don’t know exactly when players will receive this update, but Xbox promises it will be soon.
