Discord integration with PS5 and PS4 has arrived today, January 31, in the US and will be rolling out to additional countries soon. Players can now link their PSN accounts to Discord and show their PlayStation game activity on their Discord user profile, including the game they’re playing and how long they’ve been playing it. There’s also the option to display your PSN online ID on your Discord profile so your friends can add you and join in if the game features cross-play.
How to link your PlayStation account to Discord
Linking a PS5 or PS4 account to Discord is only available in the US at the moment. US players must head to their Discord account to link the two together. The process of linking is the same regardless of whether you’re on desktop, web or mobile.
Once in Discord, head to User Settings > Connections. Here there will be a new PlayStation icon sat in between the icons for GitHub and Reddit. Click on the icon to open a new browser window so that you can authorise your PlayStation account. You’ll need to sign in to PlayStation with your PSN ID and password to complete the process of linking accounts. There will be two options on Discord once the two accounts are linked: Display on Profile and Display PlayStation Network as your status.
For your PSN status to be displayed on your Discord profile, you may have to change some settings on your PlayStation console too. Both PSN Online Status and Now Playing need to be set to “Anyone” for the integration to work fully. This feature will not work for child accounts regardless of your PSN settings.
