Discord is now available on most platforms, including Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linux, and it can even be used on web browsers.
This is one of the main reasons that so many people choose to install Discord instead of similar applications. It is also slowly spreading to consoles, including both Xbox and PlayStation.
However, at the time of writing, the implementation of Discord on Xbox leaves a lot to be desired. Many basic features such as voice or text chat are unavailable, but the Xbox application still has its uses.
This is a quick guide on how you can get Discord on your Xbox.

Linking Discord On Xbox Series X/S
The first step is to connect your Xbox Live account with your Discord account.
To accomplish this, power on your console, press the Xbox button, and go to the last tab on the right called “Power & System.” You should see your username/profile. Select it and then choose “My Account” on the newly opened dropdown menu.
This will take you to your account settings. Open the Account tab and then go to Linked social accounts. You will see several social platforms you can connect to, including Facebook, Steam, and Reddit. You will need to look for Discord.
Select “Link” and enter your Discord email address and password.
You have now connected your Xbox to your Discord account!
At least you have if you are using the latest generation of Xbox consoles.
Linking Discord On Xbox One
If you are using an Xbox One, the account linking process will be slightly different.
You still need to follow the first few steps in the guide above. Go into your profile settings, then Linked Social Accounts. Press “Link” under Discord and log in with your email address and password. It looks more or less the same.
The main difference is that it will provide you with a confirmation code that needs to be entered into the desktop or mobile Discord application. Whichever platform you choose, the process is the same and is very simple.
Open Discord on your PC (or phone) and go into User Settings. From here, open the Connections tab.
You will see several platforms available for linking. Select Xbox Live, log into your Microsoft account, then enter the confirmation code provided by your Xbox.
Your Xbox should successfully connect with Discord. The primary benefit of this connection is that your friends will see which game you are playing and exactly how long you have been playing it.
