Microsoft seems intent on bringing its users to PC and Xbox under the same roof: to this end, the IT giant has decided to collaborate with Discord so bring the gaming messaging app to Xbox Live in the next future.

The implementation will be simple: players will be able to connect their account on Discord with theirs gamertag on Xbox Live. Obviously the friends connected by console will see us active and they can join us in-game; it will be possible to do it also from PC for the titles that support the cross-play platform.

This new system is already available in preview for those with an Xbox Insider account: the setting that connects the gamertag your account is already in the console account settings, as shown below.
