Every Xbox fan has been praying for a seamless Xbox–Discord experience for a long time. And from the looks of things, the wait is finally over. The update is only available for Xbox Insiders, but it won’t be long before every gamer gets to use the new feature.
When exactly will that happen? And how can you use the Discord Voice Chat on the console? Here’s everything you need to know.
