Here’s how to use Discord Voice Chat on the PS5

It’s been rumoured to be coming for a while, but now it’s finally here. That’s right gaymers, you can finally connect to your PS5 via Discord Voice Chat.

With cross-play becoming more and more popular for massive multiplayer games, such as Overwatch, Final Fantasy XIV, and Dead By Daylight, it was only a matter of time before cross-voice happened. Being able to talk to each other, regardless of what other platforms you’re on, is the best way to connect gamers and we’re stoked that these two giants have come together to make it happen.

But that opens up a pretty important question: how do connect to your PS5 via the Discord Voice Chat in the first place? Thankfully, we’ve got just the guide for you.

In this guide you’ll learn how to connect your PS5 to Discord and vice versa, as well as how to connect to your PS5 through Discord Voice Chat.

How to link your PS5 and Discord

You may think that linking the PS5 to Discord or Discord to the PS5 will link both, but that’s not the case. You have to connect both the PS5 and Discord together on each platform, which is time-consuming and a little annoying, but well-worth it.

Here’s how:

Connecting to Discord via the PS5
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Users and Accounts and then head to Linked Services

  • At Linked Services you’ll see a number of different applications, such as Twitter, Twitch, YouTube, etc. You’ll also see Discord. Select it and you’ll be taken to a screen that’ll explain the benefits of linking with Discord.
  • Select Link Account
  • It’ll tell you to head to Discord.com, which you can do either on your mobile device, your computer, or your PS5. We suggest doing it on your PS5 as it is has a much simpler process.
  • You’ll be asked to log into your Discord. Once that’s done then voila! You are linked to Discord on your PS5.
