Discord Voice Chat Coming Soon to PlayStation 5

Today, Discord and PlayStation officially announced a new chapter in their partnership and another step forward for cross-platform gaming: Discord voice chat on the PlayStation 5 console. This highly anticipated integration is available now for PS5 beta participants and will be coming later this year for all PlayStation 5 console owners.

Discord has been the go-to place for gamers on PC, mobile, and console to talk together while playing their favorite games. Last year in January, Discord took that one step further with PlayStation by giving users the ability to link their PlayStation Network account from Discord and display their PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 game activity in their user profile. Now, with this newest integration, more players from all over the world will be able to connect with their friends and play the games they love, no matter where they play — including your PlayStation 5 console.

Using Discord voice chat on the PlayStation 5 console will be easy — to get started, users who are part of the beta test should:

  • From the PS5 console, connect their PlayStation Network account to their Discord account to grant Voice Access to their console.
    • Note: if you’ve linked your PSN and Discord accounts in the past to display what game you’re playing, you’ll need to link your accounts again on your PS5 console to grant the new permissions needed for Discord voice chat.
  • Join the desired voice channel on Discord.
  • From the Discord client (desktop, browser, or mobile app) select the option to Transfer to Console and choose the PlayStation 5 console associated with the PSN ID connected to their Discord account.
  • Press Transfer Voice and use Discord voice chat on their PlayStation 5 console.

You can learn more information on the integration in the blog post here. I also have a video for your viewing pleasure below:
