Direct Discord Voice Chat is Finally Coming to PlayStation 5

PlayStation has announced that Discord voice chat will finally make its way to the PlayStation 5 directly.

In its new blog update, PlayStation has announced that players will soon be able to join Discord voice chat directly from the PS5 console, without relying on the Discord PC or mobile apps to initiate the connection. Previously, players had to manually transfer calls to their PlayStation 5 from their Discord app using a PS or mobile.

According to the blog, the update will roll out in the “coming weeks,” starting with players in Japan/Asia, followed by Europe, Australia/New Zealand, the Middle East, and finally, the Americas.

How to join Discord voice chat on PS5

To start, select the Discord tab in Game Base within the PS5 Control Center and choose the Discord server or DM group you’d like to join. Then, select your preferred voice channel. This will reveal more details, such as who is already in the channel chatting. You’ll also receive a PS5 console notification when another Discord user calls you, allowing you to join right away.

This update will make it easier than ever to quickly hop into Discord conversations with other gamers. It will gradually roll out over the coming weeks, starting with players in Japan/Asia, followed by Europe, Australia/New Zealand, and the Middle East, and finally the Americas.

Please note that you will need to update your console to the latest system software, and your accounts for PlayStation Network and Discord must be linked. If you haven’t yet linked accounts, you can learn how to do so here.
