PlayStation has announced that Discord functionality is now available via PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Like other Discord integrated services, players of these consoles can choose to connect to the chatting service to display their current gaming activity. Additionally, PlayStation Network IDs will be shown off alongside online statuses. This cross-platform compatibility is currently rolling out throughout the United States, so a recent Discord update on your device(s) should alert you when it is available. For clarity’s sake, PlayStation Plus is not required for this connectivity to occur.
To enact this process, users must go to the Connections tab within the Discord settings menu. If the option is not yet available, then the update has not arrived for you yet.
