How to Use Discord on PlayStation 5

If you do not already have a Discord account, then the first step here is to make one. After that, the next step is to make sure that your PS5 is updated to the latest version. Next, open up your Discord app. From there, go to User Settings > Connections and look for the PlayStation logo icon. Click on it. This will take you to the PlayStation website, where you need to log in using your PSN account credentials. Note that if you have already connected your Discord and PSN accounts before this latest Discord update, you will need to disconnect and reconnect them again.

Once you have done this, go to Settings on PS5 > Users and Accounts > Linked Services and then link Discord from there as well. It is very important that you link Discord to PS5 first, and PS5 to Discord second. Now you can use the “Join on PlayStation” (if using Discord on mobile) or the “Transfer to PlayStation” (if using it on PC) option on every voice channel or group DM to then start using the voice channel on the PS5. While you are in a voice call, you can tap the PlayStation button on your DualSense Controller to access options such as adjusting volume, switch channels, and leaving the call.
