discord added a new feature to its Connections panel, where it will allow people to link their accounts from other platforms to verify identity and give more confidence in the messaging application.
This will serve to a large extent so that server administrators can give roles with greater certainty to those they choose, since they will have a greater guarantee in case they have any doubts.
The other apps that will allow you to link the account will be: Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Epic Games, Battle.net, League of Legends, Riot Games, Reddit, TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, Spotify, Facebook, GitHub, Crunchyroll, PayPal and eBay. Discord bots for Destiny 2 (Charlemagne) and Roblox (Bloxlink).
However, Discord promises that next year it will start an application process for developers who want their apps to be designated official and serve as a link for verification.

Benefits of verifying Discord account
Connections is a function with several sections, such as showing others the music that is being heard on streaming platforms or showing the video game that is being enjoyed at that moment on PlayStation or Xbox.
To this will now be added that by linking the account with those platforms verification will be given and that will bring benefits such as demonstrating the number of followers in other applications or the seller rating on eBay, in case of making a sale through Discord.
An example is if the app is used to sell digital works through DeviantArt, by linking the account other users will be sure that the profile is authentic and continue with the purchase process.
Another benefit of this new function is to verify that the account does belong to a content creator from another platform, since many open their channels to interact with followers and hold raffles there.
Additionally, administrators and moderators can also choose to offer advantageous server features, such as access to certain channels, to users who authenticate their accounts with Connections and meet various conditions, such as age times on the other platform, game time , levels reached, experience and others.
The application warns that administrators will not have access to user information despite having linked the account to the server and having an assigned role, since all this data will be stored internally on the platform.
