Updating the device will hardly take a few minutes. However, in some cases, where the update size is big or the changes are major, it may take some good enough time to complete the update and get back to the system. So please let it update completely and do not perform any task when it’s getting updated to avoid any further issues.

3. Check if there’s any problem with servers

In the majority of the cases, the actual relinking issues are because of the servers and not any hardware/software defect. We recommend you cross-check whether there’s any server issue live with either Xbox or Discord or not. You can visit the respective community or contact support in cases of any outrage or get an update on the same. If there are any issues with the server, then the best you can do is to be patient and wait until they address and resolve the issue. It typically takes them a few hours to fix the issue.

4. Review account permissions

Sometimes, because of major updates, the permissions get revoked which may be the cause for not allowing your services to link again. In such cases, please head over to the settings of both Xbox and Discord and check whether the respective permissions are allowed or not. If not, please allow all the permissions required and then, restart your device once. Now try relinking them again. If the issue was because of the permissions, then it will get connected successfully.

5. Change the relinking method

There are two methods using which you can link both the Discord and Xbox accounts. One is your QR code scanner and the other one is your manual entry method. If you are trying to relink using the QR code scanner then please try the other manual entry method and vice versa. It should get connected most probably. If not, please switch to another method and perform a restart if required.

6. Restart your device and services

The best way to fix the existing issue is by restarting the device. Restarting the device ensures that of there’s any minor software issue which is causing the problem linking the account, it will get fixed. In order to restart the device, first of all turn off your Xbox. After turning off your Xbox, briefly unplug the power cord, and then re-plug it in. Next, turn on your Xbox and see if the prompt to relink still appears. That’s it. It was pretty straightforward process.

7. Contact customer support if required

If you have performed all the above mentioned steps and still you are unable to relink the Discord with Xbox, then the last option you are left with is to contact the customer support. There might be some problem particularly with your device or account which can only be resolved by the officials. We recommend contacting them as soon as possible so that you can get a resolution by earliest.
