Microsoft announces Discord update on Xbox will soon be phone-free


Microsoft has announced that the next update to Discord on Xbox will allow users to connect to voice chats without using their phone.

The update will allow Xbox owners to connect directly to calls within servers, reports The Verge.

Users can browse all voice channels on all Discord servers they are on, due to Xbox Insiders tested changes to the Alpha and Skip-Ahead Alpha rings.

Once the account is linked for the first time, users can freely join directly from their Xbox without having to transfer the call using the Xbox or Discord mobile apps.

According to the report, the next update could be rolling out in the coming weeks.

The only thing currently missing is Xbox support for Discord text channels.

A phone will only be required when someone wants to call a friend directly through Discord rather than talking on a server. The call will still need to be forwarded to the Xbox via the mobile app.

Recently, the company launched YouTube integration with an affordable Nitro subscription that unlocks several additional benefits.

“Anyone in a desktop or web-based voice channel can join in the activities, just press Rocket Ship’s enticing new button and you’re in on the action,” the company said in a post. of blogging.
