You'll soon be able to link your Discord and Xbox accounts so your friends can see what you're playing on your console in the Game Chat app.
"When you play Sea of Thieves on your Xbox, you can now give your Discord friends the opportunity to see and decide whether to play on their Xbox and play with you," wrote the Xbox Live CEO Daniel McCulloch in a blog post.
The account linking feature is expected to be released in Discord PC and mobile apps in the coming weeks. To try it out, click the Connections tab under User Preferences, click the Xbox Live option, sign in to your account, and activate the permission.
"After these simple steps, your accounts and your Xbox are linked. Live gameplay can be shared through Discord, so friends and users on your discord servers can see what you're playing on Xbox Live." McCulloch wrote .
Even Xbox Insiders will soon be able to link the accounts with Xbox One, a feature that is set to reach the broader Xbox community in the near future. To do this, open the Account Settings menu on your console, select "Linked Social Accounts" and you will see a new option for Discord. Once you've got a unique code from the Xbox, just open the Discord app, go to the Connections tab, and paste the code.
