Xbox's May update brings Discord integration so you can play with friends

The software update includes other new features like 120Hz refresh rate support and improved family settings.


Now you can sync your Discord and Xbox Live accounts.


Xbox is making it easier to play on your Xbox with your friends (or trash-talk them) by adding support for the popular gaming social network Discord.

Discord, a messaging service that's been called the Slack for gamers, makes it easier for people to talk to gamers across the world via voice or text. It's got quite the fan base too, with 130 million registered users worldwide. And with Discord synced with your Xbox, it'll be easier for you to see what your friends are playing -- whether or not you're on your Xbox.

Discord integration is part of Xbox's May update for the Xbox One line of consoles. The update also brings new features like higher 120Hz video refresh rate support for smoother graphics and the ability to more easily trim recorded game clips.
