Today, most gaming platforms have applications, including Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation. Most of them have full access to platform chat options. For example, you can join an Xbox Live party using the Xbox app. Steam has an application dedicated to text chat. PlayStation lags behind for many years, but has since included this feature in its official app. I personally used the Xbox party chat tool to play Minecraft with friends on my phone. You can still send and receive text messages just like on the actual console. It won’t replace Discord, but it’s a nice addition, especially if your friend is locked on a platform you don’t own and you play cross-games (like Destiny 2).
