Discord allows users to chat and make calls in private groups while they play. Microsoft announced yesterday that the service will also be available for Xbox this year. Soon, consumers will be able to start Discord conversations through the console, see who is participating, and adjust the volume. However, this does not happen directly through the game console, but through the Xbox mobile app. This will link the Discord account and Xbox. Members of the Xbox Insiders Beta Program can get started with Discord right away. This is the version that allows Microsoft to test using Discord in a closed environment. The American company plans to make the service available to all Xbox owners later this year. The exact date has not yet been announced.
