Discord's enhanced Xbox experience is now available to everyone.

Microsoft revealed that the Xbox November update, which includes a new Captures app, the ability to join Discord voice channels directly from your console, and several other upgrades, is already rolling out to users.
Previously, you had to transfer the call using your phone or computer if you wanted to join a voice channel on your Xbox. With the upgrade, you'll be able to join them directly from the Discord tab of the Parties and Chats menu. There was still the restriction that you needed to utilize your phone to join a direct one-on-one voice connection when Microsoft first allowed insiders to test the functionality last month.
What else comes in this update?
According to Microsoft, the update now comes with a new Captures app that enhances the viewing, editing, and management of your screen captures. This program also enables you to copy your screen captures to an external disk. Additionally, according to the manufacturer, the Series S and X will now record in 720p and 1080p with a little higher bitrate and slightly better clarity, preventing things from becoming overly pixelated during tense situations.
The update now enables livestreaming on Twitch, Lightstream, and Streamlabs from the Xbox itself, continuing the theme of game sharing.
Sony x Discord?
Sony promised to include Discord features into their gaming console, but there have been no indications of this. Will there be a new version soon? I sure hope so.
