As someone who crossplays a lot from my PC with friends on PS5, I can't wait for this.

Hopefully it's for full cross platform integration and not just for play activity.

Hopefully it's for full cross platform integration

They announced it almost a year ago, so whatever they're working on should be this. Would be silly if it's just a Discord status like ".. is listening to Spotify" or something.

Would be silly if it’s just a Discord status like “.. is listening to Spotify” or something.

Well this is what the “integration” on Xbox was.

ID: hrejfgc

If it's taken this long, I hope it's full communities support and a replacement for the current communities features.

ID: hreiwrj

Same here - I have friends on Xbox too so it would be good to see it there as well

ID: hrf0cme

You can already get into Xbox parties from pc though

ID: hrejmfx

I don’t even cross play, the native chat client for PS just sucks so much I’m excited

4 : Anonymous2022/01/05 17:37 ID: hrdogmx

Considering how many games are cross play this is honestly a huge move, especially if they do it right with a nice/clean UI.

Being able to seamlessly chat and create parties with PC players will be so wild, great move for the PS5.

I hope they let you share screen through Discord directly. I find it somewhat annoying having to stream to twitch for friends to see what I'm playing while we're on Discord.

ID: hrd7adj

I kinda found a loophole for this, so I launch remote play on pc, connect the dualsense to the pc and screnshare remote play on discord to show my friends sth. Works pretty well with good internet.

ID: hrelscw

Even better than this, you can initiate the remote play from a secondary account on the console so that you are able to then log in to your primary account and play on your PS5 while the secondary account is sharing the video feed to your PC which you then screen share. Eliminates the need for you to play with the horrible share play input delay.

ID: hrefmlg

So streaming it to PC (simultaneous upload and download) and then streaming to Discord (upload)? How good is your internet?

Or maybe you can connect a cable to your PC to make remote play better and I don’t know? Never used this feature tbh

ID: hre3ti5

Are you on PS5? Because you can share your screen with everyone who’s in a party with you and you can watch it from the app

ID: hre6d9i

I’m assuming the issue is that not everyone on discord is also playing with them / has a PlayStation

ID: hre5q2f

Honestly my favorite feature

ID: hre5z54

Still not ideal but if you stream to YouTube, you can make it a private stream so randoms don’t join

6 : Anonymous2022/01/05 18:05 ID: hrdt2sk

Sick! I play almost exclusively on PS5 and my friend alternates between PC and PS5 on some games we play. We really like PlayStation voice chat parties but this would be really nice.

7 : Anonymous2022/01/05 15:46 ID: hrd6dsv

I still laugh at how discord was looking for investors and partners. Microsoft thought, oh hey lets buy them. Then basically a week later Sony announced they have invested in Discord and will integrate into playstation

ID: hrdnk4a

Wich is something much better for the consumer

ID: hre9udu

You’re not wrong. People for a long time have been wanting Skype on PlayStation but it never came due to Microsoft buying them

8 : Anonymous2022/01/05 15:31 ID: hrd4051

This would be amazing for crossplay titles. Very good QOL change for LFGs

ID: hrdmci4

It’s going to be a game changer for FF14

ID: hrdy0qd

Currently doing Savage prog on PS5, and I got to play with Discord on my phone, 1 headphone (connected to phone) bud in one ear, then my gaming headphones on my head with only 1 speaker on my other ear...

Don't even get me started with headphones dying and static noises from using Bluetooth headsets.

ID: hregr3q

I’m really hoping this comes out before or around the time Witch Queen comes out for Destiny

9 : Anonymous2022/01/05 21:26 ID: hrenq8e

I really hope it’s full on Discord, with cameras, screen sharing, voice chat, etc fully integrated

10 : Anonymous2022/01/05 21:26 ID: hrens3q

This is the single most important update I am waiting for. I play crossplatform games with PC people and its a total drag using my phone for coms

11 : Anonymous2022/01/05 16:06 ID: hrd9ish

I will crumb in my pants

ID: hrddmst

Gotta watch the undy crumbs

With how heavily Sony censors links and other content in their own messaging system, the relative wild west of discord is definitely going to be interesting.

ID: hrdhw1z

Yeah this worries me. I hope it doesn’t result in us just having half of discord, but even if it’s chat rooms only, that works for me

ID: hre05dp

Agreed, I would want full, proper implementation but I'm worried Sony will try to be super family friendly

13 : Anonymous2022/01/05 23:32 ID: hrf7b4e

Discord is a vulnerable mess. So curious to see if this ends up contributing to ps5 jailbreak

14 : Anonymous2022/01/05 16:26 ID: hrdcpvc

how exactly will this work? can we use discord as an alternative to psn parties? and who moderates the discord servers, discord or sony? one of my toxic friends reported one of my messages last year to troll me and I was suspended for a week, had to delete him afterwards. I mostly have a digital library so the thought of people reporting you over petty shit and having sony arbitrarily increase the odds of permabanning you and locking you out of paid content pisses me off. if I can use this as an alternative to their babysitter-esque policies then I definitely will.

ID: hrdkihs

I doubt it will be that so much as you might be able to use Discord to directly one click set up a PSN party perhaps?

ID: hrdqm6d

hopefully there's a degree of autonomy to it, I've always hated the changes they made to the party system and their stringent suspension policy on top of that, mostly over harmless trashtalk between friends doesnt help.

ID: hrdi73w

I really hate the babysitting crap they do because people just use it to petty ban people. Have to watch what you say even in your own chats with people. We added someone to a group who instantly reported my friend asking for “cock dick balliver tree” to get online, was banned for a month

ID: hrdpzm6

yeah its insane. adult players cant even talk to other fully grown adult players without sony acting like some sort of grade school teacher, and im pretty sure nintendo and microsoft do the same exact thing.

ID: hre9gb3

This is just a partnership with PlayStation, Sony doesn’t have anything else to do with Discord.

It shouldn’t be any different with how Xbox is currently integrated with Discord. You’ll be able to connect your PSN account to your profile, and any games you play will show up as your status.

ID: hrect2k

how will communication work on it, will voice and message chat be handled by PS representatives or discord?

15 : Anonymous2022/01/05 17:02 ID: hrdikud


I play a lot on PC, and talk to my friends in discord while we play. But they don't have Playstation. So when I play my PS5, I basically have to disconnect from the group to play on my own.

I tried just using discord mobile, but MY GOD the mobile app is trash. Randomly disconnects, crappy audio, etc.

Would be nice to be able to just jump into the voice call while I play on my own and just simply enjoy it.

ID: hrdoit2

I have found the Discord iOS app to be great. I pop in the default wired headphones that have a mic and use them under my headset. Decent workaround, can get it comfortable and the audio from discord has never been shit/disconnected

ID: hrdop76

Interesting. I use the Android app on my Pixel and it has all sorts of issues. I don't have an iOS device so I can't switch to see if it's any better, but glad to know it's out there!

16 : Anonymous2022/01/05 20:10 ID: hrecvvj

Will this be on ps4 or only ps5?

17 : Anonymous2022/01/05 17:17 ID: hrdl0fo

Any chance this will be integrated on Xbox too ? Would make voice chat so much easier

ID: hrdtrlp

Most likely not as it’s part of a larger partnership Discord now has with PlayStation after Sony invested in them

ID: hrdlzl9


18 : Anonymous2022/01/05 18:07 ID: hrdth17

It will be for PS4 too right?

ID: hred5b5


20 : Anonymous2022/01/05 19:42 ID: hre8rar

Ps party chat was the fucking worst, NAT type bullshit, disconnecting issues.... Fuck that.

21 : Anonymous2022/01/05 17:52 ID: hrdqwvy

Until you start playing games with cross-play that don't have a built-in chat....

22 : Anonymous2022/01/05 17:56 ID: hrdrm2v

I won't be doing that. My friends have a PS4 or a PS5.

23 : Anonymous2022/01/05 20:04 ID: hrebvu9

Hell yea

24 : Anonymous2022/01/05 20:22 ID: hreejfq

Fucking finally. I'm tired of having two different mics, just bought a MV7 just so I could talk on PC and PS5 at the same time.

25 : Anonymous2022/01/05 20:24 ID: hreeqr6

I check on this like once a week since it was announced. I can’t wait. I miss my PlayStation friends since I’m mainly PC now.

26 : Anonymous2022/01/05 20:49 ID: hreicd1

Someone posted news yesterday about Sony officially confirming Discord integration and you post this?

27 : Anonymous2022/01/05 20:50 ID: hreik60

This just looks like a login method not an indication that voice support is coming. You can already see your profile from playstation api as seen with this lib

But maybe there is hope with all the new cross play additions across many games. Here is to wishing

28 : Anonymous2022/01/05 21:15 ID: hrem72y

I would love if discord could integrate and display what game i am playing when i choose to play PS5

29 : Anonymous2022/01/05 21:37 ID: hrepazy

I've been wanting this for years, this would be awesome.

30 : Anonymous2022/01/05 22:58 ID: hrf1zv1

I might prioritize using discord over playstations party system honestly.

31 : Anonymous2022/01/05 23:05 ID: hrf32jd

I wouldn’t get your hopes up on how this is going to run. I’ve run Apple Music while playing some games and it noticed a huge performance drop. Not in frames but navigating through menus and stuff. I doubt the PS5 will be able to handle discord while playing games. Most crossplay titles already run heavy. I’ll stick to using my mixamp.

32 : Anonymous2022/01/05 17:05 ID: hrdizb2

About dang time.

33 : Anonymous2022/01/05 18:29 ID: hrdx86f

Great. Now I just need to make friends and learn how Discord actually works then I'm golden!

blindly smashes buttons to see what happens**

34 : Anonymous2022/01/05 18:37 ID: hrdyib2

I can’t believe it’s taking this long with how long cross play has been out for so many big games

35 : Anonymous2022/01/05 21:48 ID: hreqzk5

I still don’t really understand what discord is, but it did help me get a PS5 today. Beyond that I just don’t get it.

36 : Anonymous2022/01/05 22:15 ID: hreuz67

It's an app where you can

- Chat or call 1 on 1 with people.
- Have large groups, either a few friends or thousands of people, that have multiple different chat rooms and voice calls all at once to keep stuff organized neatly by categories.

It also can do stuff like send PC game invites in the app, show what game you're currently playing, create a calendar with upcoming group events, screenshare for movie watch parties or helping a friend with technical issues, etc. Another big part is that it has really in depth "roles" systems to give people different permissions and access to different chat rooms (makes running things and organizing large groups of people easier) and lets you upload pictures to make your own emojis.
