How to use Discord voice chat on PlayStation 5
Discord capabilities are soon arriving on the PlayStation 5, allowing players the chance to chat on one service. With its integration imminent, here’s how to link your accounts and how to use Discord voice chat on your PlayStation 5.
If you’ve always preferred using Discord to speak to your friends then the new feature rolling out on the PlayStation 5 will be perfect. As previously seen for Xbox, PlayStation will soon be introducing Discord to its voice features, allowing players the chance to communicate on the software rather than on party chat.
On February 2, 2023, it was announced that Discord will be available for PlayStation users, even if it’s only for those part of the beta testing. While there’s yet to be a release date for other PlayStation 5 players, we’ve put together everything you need to know about how to use Discord on your PS5.
It’s worth noting that the Discord voice chat is currently only available for PS5 beta testers and will only work for the newer-gen consoles, namely the PS5.
