How to Use Discord on Xbox & Start Voice Chating With Xbox Friends

You can now use Discord voice chat on your console, but it’s not as easy as installing an app and joining or starting a call as it is on PC and mobile.

There is some setting up to do. But you only have to set it up once, and after that you can use it. You’ll need to link your Discord account to your Xbox account before you can connect. This is easy to do, and you can do it from the settings/connections menu on the web, in the desktop app, or in the mobile app.

After connecting the two accounts, you’ll need to have the Xbox mobile app on your phone. Your console also needs to be linked to your mobile app. From there, you can use the Discord app to join a call. Then tap the Join on Xbox button. This will open the Xbox mobile app. Then, tap the button that says “Transfer Audio” to move the call to the Xbox.

Every time, you’ll have to start the call in Discord and then transfer it on. But you’ll only have to link your accounts once. So, most of the time, the process was quick and easy.
