Crossplay Voice Chat (Destiny)

From some random article I found on the web:

However, while you can technically play with your friends, there are still a few missing crossplay features. In-game cross-platform voice chat is coming to Destiny 2 “soon after launch” according to Bungie, and the ability to change your Bungie name and display text chat on console is coming sometime this winter.

Yeah hopefully it's soon, although it may be a good idea to have alternate solutions available for when it A) Sounds horrible and B) You randomly can't hear certain people due to whatever networking dark magic.

I've heard okay things about Xbox party chat but on a couple occasions it hasn't worked very well when I've been playing with PC friends in Fortnite. Also it's sort of a hard sell to join a group of 5 PC players and ask them to stop using their preferred chat method (e.g. Discord) just for you.

I think that's probably why they didn't let this late-breaking bug hold up the release of the feature. A big percentage of gamers have been using third-party tools for chat for years.
