Microsoft has just confirmed the surprising news. The first players will be able to check voice conversations via Discord, which will certainly have a very positive impact on the gameplay and the continuation of discussions with friends.
Today, Xbox Insiders users can check out a new feature – voice calls via Discord. The company took care of the full support of the proposal, which will allow players to talk smoothly with their friends:
“Today’s update brings you a much sought after feature – Discord Voice on Xbox consoles lets you chat with your friends and the community while playing your favorite games. Are you planning a few rounds of Halo Infinite multiplayer with buddies on console and PC? Discovering new biomes with friends in Minecraft? See that they are already playing a game that supports cross-play? Connect to their channel and chat while you play.
As you play the game on your console, you’ll be able to see who’s connected and discussing. You’ll also be able to adjust the audio and switch between Discord chat and Xbox in-game chat. ”
The situation is certainly interesting because, as you know , Microsoft wanted to buy Discord last year , but the company rejected a large corporation offer and decided to cooperate with various companies. After all, the Redmond giant wants to use the communicator’s capabilities and took care of more support on Xboxes.
Microsoft notes that today’s update will be offered to select members of the Xbox Insider program, but will be available to more players in the coming weeks.
