Xbox One May Update Lands Today

The latest update for Microsoft’s entertainment console, the Xbox One, has just landed today.

The update is set to introduce a couple of nifty new features, most notably, discord compatibility. The new discord function will display on your status if you are gaming on Xbox One (like how it currently shows what you are playing on PC.) Unfortunately, that’s about it. Chat function should arrive soon.

In addition to the discord function being added, 120Hz support has been added for 1080p and 1440p resolutions on Xbox One S and Xbox One X with The May Update. This should ensure smoother gaming, lower latency, and less tearing and stuttering on supported monitors.

If you want to link discord onto your console, here’s how you do it:

From Xbox One

Open the Account Settings menu on Xbox One, and select “Linked social accounts.” Here, you will see a new option for linking your Discord account. Once you receive your unique code from Xbox, open the Discord app and insert the code within the Connections tab.

From PC

From the Discord app on PC or on a mobile device, in the coming weeks you will see an option to link your Xbox account with your Discord account through the Connections tab under User Settings. Click on the Xbox Live option and sign in to your account. After enabling permission, your accounts will be linked.
