How to Use Discord Voice Chat on PS5
After successfully linking your Discord and PlayStation accounts, it’s time to level up your gaming experience by voice chatting with your Discord friends on your PS5.
Here is how you can enable voice chat for PS5 on Discord. On mobile device, simply slide up the Voice controls and you’ll notice a new button labeled “Join on PlayStation.” Meanwhile, on desktop, you’ll see a button that resembles a phone and a game controller side by side. Afterward, you’ll be prompted to select the console where you want your Voice conversation to be transferred. Your conversation will be automatically and smoothly transferred to your PS5 console.
Once on console, your controls will be exactly same as Discord.
