Sony rolls out feature for PS5 players to join Discord voice chat directly from the console


Sony is bringing the ability to join Discord voice chats directly from the PS5 console. The PlayStation parent introduced Discord integration with the PS5 in an update last year, but PS5 players had to use the messaging app on PC or mobile to initiate the connection. Now, players can join Discord voice chats natively on their PS5. Sony first revealed plans to integrate Discord into PlayStation consoles in 2021.

In a PlayStation Blog post, Sony announced that it is rolling out the ability for PS5 players to join Discord voice chats directly from their PS5. The feature will be rolled out to users gradually over the coming weeks.

How to join Discord voice chat on PS5

To join Discord voice chat directly on PS5, go to Game Base inside Control Center on the console, select the Discord tab, and choose the Discord server or DM group you want to join.

Then, choose your preferred voice channel, which will show you more information about the people already chatting there. According to Sony, PS5 users will also receive PS5 console notifications when another Discord user calls them, allowing users to join the call immediately.

Discord voice chat will roll out in the coming weeks, starting with Japan/Asia and then rolling out to Europe, Australia/New Zealand, the Middle East, and the U.S. To get the feature, the PS5 must be updated with the latest system software, and PlayStation Network (PSN) and Discord accounts must be linked.

PS5 Profile Sharing Feature

Sony has also announced a new profile sharing feature that will allow players to share their PlayStation Network profile on any messaging or social app. This can be done through both the PS5 console and the PlayStation app. Players can select the “Share Profile” option to generate a shareable link or QR code for their PSN profile. When the recipient opens the link or scans the code, they can add the profile owner as a PSN friend. The Share Profile feature will begin rolling out next week.

Sony first added Discord integration to the PS5 in an update in March last year. The feature allowed players to answer Discord calls from the PS5 only after transferring the call from their PC or phone app to the console.
