You will be able to control the volume of these chats and seamlessly switch between Discord Voice and Xbox chat while you’re in your game.

Right, let’s start setting up Discord on your Xbox



Open Xbox Settings

The first thing you will want to do is boot up your Xbox Series X. Once it is all up and running, navigate to ‘Settings’.

From ‘Settings’ head to the ‘Account’ section then ‘Linked social accounts’. Here you will see all the social apps you can link to your Xbox. We want to link Discord, so head to the Discord tab and click ‘Link’.



Sign in to Discord

Next we will need to sign in to Discord. You can either scan the QR code with your phone which will take you directly to the Discord site, or you can ‘Continue on Console’.

Whichever option you choose, you will need to log in with your Discord details as you normally would either on your Xbox or on your phone.

Once you log in, you will be asked to authorize linking your account to Xbox. At this point click ‘Authorize’.

After this, Xbox may make you log back into your Xbox account to verify this process. Just continue the login process as you would, with your account details.



Transfer Discord channels to Xbox

So now you have linked your Discord and Xbox account, let’s use it. To join a voice channel on your Xbox you will need to open your Discord App on your smartphone.

Join your chosen voice channel and swipe up to pull up all the settings. Here you will find ‘Transfer to Xbox’, click this button. This will take you to the Xbox App where you will need to select ‘Transfer Voice’.

The voice channel should now be all up and running on your console. To change voice channels you will have to control it from the app, unfortunately. You can, however, take advantage other features on your Xbox such as mute your mic, switch to game chat, and disconnect.

You will need the Discord and Xbox App for this step!



Join a Discord channel directly from your Xbox Series X

You can access your voice channels through your mobile app or directly on your Xbox thanks to a new update back in November. Simply join a call directly through your console in these easy steps.

With your Xbox booted up, open ‘Parties & chats’. From here, select Discord. This will open Discord and you should now see all your servers.
