Microsoft rolls out new update on Discord voice chat for Xbox users

Microsoft has rolled out a new update which will provide users the ability to connect their Discord voice channels directly from their Xbox console, making it easier to chat with Discord friends across mobile, console, and PC.

“When your Discord account is linked to Xbox, you can now join voice channels from your Discord servers directly from your Xbox console,” Microsoft said in a blogpost.

For users to try it, they will need to open the guide, scroll to Parties and chats, and select Discord.

Further, users will need to scroll through their available Discord servers and pick a voice channel, and then users will get to see a preview of their friends who are in a Discord server and voice channel before they join, according to the blogpost.

Also, noise reduction has been activated so that users connecting to Discord Voice on Xbox Series X|S consoles will hear even clearer audio.

This feature blocks background noises like barking dogs and clicking keyboards while continuing to clearly transmit your voice, the blogpost added.

Moreover, the company has added a new Captures app to Xbox, which can be found in the Capture and share tab of the guide, as well as My games and apps, offering improved viewing, management, and editing of users’ game captures.

With the introduction of Twitch, Lightstream, and Streamlabs, users can now start their live stream directly from their Xbox console, said the blogpost.
