Chatty apps.

Discord is a hugely popular app that allows you to set up your own servers, chat with your buddies, and form your own communities if you want to. As such, it is a popular choice for games and has long taken the number one spot in most gaming communities when it comes to how we all chat when playing games.

It is a little unusual that it is not officially supported on the Xbox Series X. This does not mean that you can’t get it; you will just need to take some extra steps to get it up and running.

Before we start, there are a few things to keep in mind. This will involve a third-party app and giving that app permissions for your Discord account. If you would prefer to err on the side of caution, create a new Discord account just for your Xbox Series X.

The third-party app you will be looking for is called Quarrel, and you will need to log into your Discord through this app on your Xbox Series X. To make it all work, just take the following simple steps:

  1. Open up the Microsoft Store on Series X or Series S.
  2. Click “Search” and type in “Discord”
  3. Download the app “Quarrel” to your System. There will be an icon of a bird.
  4. Log into your account on the app and start using Discord.

We should also point out that this is far from a perfect solution. A quarrel can be, well, quarrelsome. The app is prone to crashing, failing to load, or not working in other ways. Remember the golden rule of using apps. If in doubt, don’t.
