Now, Xbox has announced that they’re the first console to get official Discord integration.
Xbox Has The First Console Discord Integration
As the official blog post for the announcement states:
“Today’s update enables a highly requested feature – Discord Voice on Xbox consoles allows you to talk with your friends and community while you play your favorite games. Planning a few rounds of multiplayer action in Halo Infinite with buddies on both console and PC? Exploring new biomes with your friends in Minecraft? See them already playing a game that supports cross-play? Connect to their voice channel and chat as you all play.
While you are playing on your console, you will be able to see who is in the call and speaking. You’ll also be able to adjust the sound, and switch between Discord Voice and Xbox game chat.“
This makes Xbox the first major console platform to get official Discord integration. While it was previously possible to use the two platforms in tandem, now you can do so in a much easier manner.

The question now, of course, is when will Discord come to PlayStation? That now seems like it might be sooner, rather than later.
