After knowing the association agreement between Discord Y PlayStation Last May 2021, the instant messaging company with VoIP voice chat and text has announced that from this moment it will be possible to link PlayStation Network accounts to its service. Next we tell you how to link your account in simple steps.
Discord comes to PlayStation: everything you need to know
The connection of PS5 and PS4 console accounts on Discord is something that has been requested for a long time; now it will be possible, although it is important to emphasize that the deployment will be carried out progressively. Thus, it is possible that some users still cannot, since the implementation will be done little by little.
“If you’ve ever connected your Discord account to another service that allows you to display your activity, it works similarly here: Once your Discord account is linked, the game you’re currently playing on PS4 or PS5 will show up as your activity, it’s that easy!”, relates the official portal of the service in a statement. “Even you can choose to display your PlayStation Network Online ID in your profile so your Discord friends can add you and join you. It is especially useful to know if your friend is playing a game that supports cross-play on another platform.
How to connect a PlayStation Network account on Discord?
Connecting a PlayStation Network account on Discord is really easy; it is based on the same methods as with other existing services. We leave an attached image to make things easier for you. These are the steps you must follow:
- Sign in to Discord and access User Settings.
- In User Settings, go to connections.
- In this section you will see all the possible connections that Discord currently allows. You should see the icon PlayStation Network.
- Now, a window will ask you to authorize the operation, log in to PlayStation and finally link your account.
When you have finished you will see that two new options are displayed: You show in the profile and Show PlayStation Network as your status. Finally, it should be said that the visibility and privacy options of PlayStation can be configured. By default it will not be visible on Discord, so in order for others to know that you are playing on your PlayStation console you must set the online status to Anyone/Anyone.
