Xbox will be welcoming the Discord app into their interface very soon, bringing in compatibility and linking together Xbox accounts and Discord. See the benefits here!
With this new integration, Xbox players will be able to link their Xbox account with Discord so it shows when their friends are online playing Xbox. Microsoft has listed two ways in which this can be done:
- Through Xbox One: Navigate Account Settings and Linked Social Accounts to select the ‘Discord’ option and receive a code. Once this is done, you can then open the Discord App on the console and put the code in under the Connections tab.
- Through Discord: This can be done through Discord on a separate device such as PC or mobile. Go to User Settings and then Connections, and link Xbox Live account to give the proper permissions.
While this has yet to be fully implemented, Xbox Insider members will be given the option soon in a preview, while regular players will see it in the coming weeks.
