We’ve all been waiting for the moment to connect our PlayStations to Discord and show off that we’re playing God of War, Uncharted, or even going a little back to Little Big Planet. It’s finally here! Connect your PS5 to Discord. 

Connecting your Discord to your PS5 is a cinch whether on desktop or mobile. In this example, we’ll be on mobile.

1. Open Discord app and select your user profile on the bottom of the left panel

This screen indicates your accounts are linked! Now, whatever game you are playing on the PS5 is displayed under your name in Discord. If you can’t see your game displayed follow these next steps.

You should be all set. If you don’t see this screen because you were so eager to get back to playing, there is a way to turn on the display straight from your user settings.

1. Click on the cogwheel Settings on the bottom left side of the Discord app.

3. Click the Display current activity as a status message button so it slides to the left and turns green. Now you should be seeing your current game displayed underneath your username.

Now that this feature is available we’re most definitely looking forward to a Discord app on PlayStation for voice chats!

    You cannot connect it right now I do not think. My friends in the rainbow six siege discord would love to have me if this is the case.
