    Microsoft and Discord Team Up to Connect Gamers Across Xbox Live and Discord

    [​IMG]
    PC and console gamers, unite! Today we are excited to announce a new collaboration between Xbox and Discord.

    Connecting with friends is such a big part of why people game. Gamers all over the world use and love Discord to easily chat and connect with friends while they game. In the coming weeks, this collaboration will make it easier for gamers to choose to do just that – make it easier to connect and see what friends are playing across console and PC. It’s part of the work we are doing to provide gamers with more choice, allowing them to play how and where they want to.

    In response to your feedback, you will now have the option to link your Discord account to your Xbox account, making it easier than ever to see what your friends are playing. If you are playing Sea of Thieves on your Xbox, you can now choose to give your Discord friends the ability to see that and decide whether they want to hop on their Xbox and join you.

    How will it work?

    From Xbox One

    As an Xbox Insider, starting soon in preview, you will also have the added option to link your Xbox Live account to your Discord account directly from your Xbox One, which will become available to the broader Xbox community soon. Open the Account Settings menu on Xbox One, and select “Linked social accounts.” Here, you will see a new option for linking your Discord account. Once you receive your unique code from Xbox, open the Discord app and insert the code within the Connections tab.

    From PC

    From the Discord app on PC or on a mobile device, in the coming weeks you will see an option to link your Xbox account with your Discord account through the Connections tab under User Settings. Click on the Xbox Live option and sign in to your account. After enabling permission, your accounts will be linked.

    After following these few simple steps, your accounts will be linked and your Xbox Live game presence can be shared across Discord, enabling friends and users in your same Discord servers to see what you’re playing on Xbox Live.

    We’re excited about working with Discord and are thrilled to enable new ways for gamers to connect with one another online. For more on the latest news from Xbox, stay tuned to Xbox Wire.

    DISCORD EXEC ON THE CHAT SERVICE'S IMPRESSIVE GROWTH, PARTNERING WITH XBOX AND MORE


    http://www.newsweek.com/discord-cel...nging-gamers-together-impressive-stats-929524


    Chat service Discord celebrates its third birthday this month, and the company has seen some monstrous growth in the last year. The number of users has more than doubled in that time, and now sits at over 130 million. The growth is almost entirely organic, thanks in large part to the company’s drive to engage with its community and build on user feedback.
