How To Get Discord Voice Chat Working On Xbox
Before getting your Discord voice chat working on Xbox, there are a few prerequisites you'll need to set up first and some valuable information you need to know. Most importantly is that you'll need to be a part of the Xbox Insider Program and agree to its terms and conditions.

Being a part of the Insider Program doesn't necessarily mean you gain early access to the Discord integration to Xbox though (which some users do have) as it's currently limited to Alpha and Alpha Skip testers. But Microsoft has announced that the feature will "expand to more in the coming weeks" with a public release on the broader horizon for all users.
To set it up yourself and give it a try, follow the steps we have outlined below:

Power up your Xbox, go to the Parties & chats tab in the Xbox Guide menu then select the Try Discord on Xbox banner.
Scan the QR code using the Discord QR code scan option, which can be found in the mobile app's settings. It may prompt you to join the beta program for Discord on Google Play until it goes public.
Follow the on-screen prompts to sign in with your Xbox account and allow Discord to connect with your Xbox account.
NOTE: There's a chance that you might run into a bug that can interrupt the flow between the app authentication from your browser and the Discord app.
