This functionality has been in the works for a while, with Sony purchasing a stake in Discord back in 2021. While some account linking features have already been present for a while as a result of this partnership, full chat functionality only just arrived.

The functionality is fully cross-compatible with other devices using Discord, meaning that players on PS5 can talk to friends on PC, mobile or Xbox with no extra effort. All that’s required is a Discord account.

Discord provided helpful information about how to link up accounts with the new service. However, the app isn’t directly available on PS5. Instead, players will need to link their PSN account on Discord on PC or mobile and transfer their call from that device to their console. Players who already linked their accounts for previous features will need to relink their accounts for this purpose.

As well as Discord integration, the PlayStation 5 system software 7.0 update also adds and improves other social features of the console, improvements to data transfer from PS4 and support for variable refresh rate displays. Full details can be found here.
