DIscord is just the best.
Discord is literally the best. The gaming focused VoIP/communication app has over 90 million users, and is a mainstay of PC gaming. Now, Microsoft has announced that they will be supporting basic integration of Xbox Live accounts with Discord soon.
Notably, this won’t let you use a Discord app to chat with your friends on Xbox, for example- what it does do, though, is allow your Discord friends see what you’re playing on your Xbox Live account (whether on PC or Xbox One). It’s baby steps, but it once again demonstrates Microsoft’s willingness to play nice with other platforms and services.
The option will be available “soon”, with no specific date shared yet. It will be made available to Xbox Insider members first, with a general rollout coming later. Personally, I am hoping that even tighter Xbox Live and Discord integration is coming- and that Nintendo and Sony follow in Xbox’s footsteps with this, too.
