Microsoft says, soon Xbox won't need a phone to make Discord calls

Microsoft has announced that very soon you will not need to use your phone in order to connect to a call on Discord server when you are inside your Xbox environment. So this is an interesting trend that I wanted to bring to your notice where there is this big gaming world and companies like Discord and Microsoft now with this announcement on Xbox are making things easier for your audience who are on the gaming ecosystem to communicate with each other. Now this creates a smooth social networking environment. So as people play games, they are also social networking with others, having these conversations, having these social media relationships being built and communication being enabled. So as nonprofits or ministry it is important for us to understand this behavior of people on the gaming ecosystem.
