Most gaming platforms have apps these days, including Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation. Most of them have full access to the platform chat options. For instance, you can join an Xbox Live party with the Xbox app. Steam has a dedicated app just for its text chat. PlayStation lagged behind for many years, but has since included the functionality in its official app. I have personally used Xbox party chat for playing Minecraft with friends while on my phone. You can also still send and receive text messages as well just like you can on your actual console. It won’t displace Discord, but it’s a nice addition, especially if your friends are locked to a platform you don’t own and you play games with crossplay (like Destiny 2).
