You can also link your accounts vice versa with your Xbox Live account featuring your Discord account directly on your dashboard. "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".
Personally, this is great. Once the accounts are linked, players can let their friends see what they're playing even if the friends' Xbox devices aren't on at the time. Not only that, you have a lot of Play Anywhere games coming out which this would be flawless for. Now Xbox One and Windows 10 users can use the application between the 2 platforms.
Discord has been a popular application, bringing together communities with similar interest easily.
"Gamers all over the world use and love Discord to easily chat and connect with friends while they game", the announcement said.
While it doesn't seem like there will be any communication functionality from Discord crossing over onto Xbox One, the new integration and support at least provides a neat way of bridging the gap between consoles and PC through one of the (currently) most popular gaming communication apps out now. Xbox Live parties and Discord chat aren't compatible in any way. You'll be able to connect it from your PC the same way, just by looking under the "Connections" tab on Discord itself.
Microsoft is hoping to tap into the popularity of the PC gaming chat app, Discord. You'll be asked to enable permission and when you do your two accounts will be linked.
