Discord On PS5: How To Link Accounts

Here's everything you need to know about using Discord on your PlayStation 5.


Sony is finally rolling out Discord to PlayStation 5 players. Similar to how Discord was first integrated with Xbox, you'll need to do a few things first. After you've completed all of the required steps, you'll be able to chat with all of your other friends who game on other platforms. In addition to that, you won't have to worry about others' in-game chat interrupting your conversations. Here's everything you'll need to know about connecting Discord to PS5.

Link Discord and PS5

To link Discord, you'll need to be a part of the PS5 beta testers program and receive an email with a code to give you access. If you're not a part of the beta test program, you can sign up here. But don't worry if you'd rather not do that. According to Discord, this feature will be "coming soon for all PS5 owners."

Once you've entered the code into your PS5, you'll need to go into your Settings and select User and Accounts. After that, click on Linked Services and then select Discord. Selecting this will prompt open a QR code and an 8-digit code for you to use. Follow the instructions on your screen, and once you've completed it, your Discord account will be linked to your PlayStation account.

After linking your two accounts, you're almost done!

How to use Discord on your PlayStation 5

Now that everything is connected, you're just about ready to use Discord on your PS5. All you need to do is go onto your phone or your PC and use the Discord app.

If you're using the mobile app, join a voice channel and swipe up, this will lead you to a tab that says "Join on PlayStation." But if you're on PC, all you need to do is click on the phone icon and click on "Transfer to PlayStation."

Now you don't have to worry about talking over people in game chat.
