As per the announcement, the Xbox players will be able to chat with anyone on Discord via voice channels or group calls directly from their Xbox console making it easy to connect with friends across mobile, Xbox, and PC.
Also, Discord Voice Chat Support for Xbox will be available today for Xbox Insiders and will roll out to everybody else at a later point. The new Discord functionality will be available to Xbox insiders first through a new update that will start rolling out today and will expand to more in the coming weeks.
