Microsoft/Xbox partners with Discord to connect gamers across both networks

Will Microsoft expand this relationship in the future?



Special Thanks to NeverBackDown for the info.

I could see in the future Xbox using Discord over there current system. MS would probably buy them out though.

Oh I hope not after what went on with Beam. I do hope they eventually get cross platform voice chat going. That would be awesome.

Well if they offer enough dough and discord owner sees a bunch of 0's after a certain number.. he may just accept it!

Its a step in the right direction at least for MS. They always claim to want to do better on PC but never seem to. This changes that

I may be stuck in the olden days, although I just turned 27, but up to this day, I have not understood, why people started to use Discord over TeamSpeak...

Better voice quality, chat functionality (typing), posting videos, etc. It can be treated as a chat forum.

TS used to be the go to platform, but it never evolved like Discord did.

Because it's out-dated?
Primarily though, anyone can set up a server for free and I can be connected to all of them at once!

The voice quality is most definitely not better, nor is the connection quality or reliability. Discord is a do-all platform, Teamspeak when correctly configured is still leagues better at doing voice comms.

I, for one, am not a fan of M$ doing anything like taking over or getting any closer to being too involved with Discord, don't forget it's a centralised service which stores *every*. *single*. *message*. forever...
You have the full and indexed history of every channel, would you really want that in Microsoft's hands? No thanks...

The voice quality is more than fine. So doesn't really matter honestly.
