You Can Now Connect Discord To Your PlayStation Account

Mid last year, Sony announced that it had made a minority investment in Discord weeks after it reportedly declined an acquisition offer from Microsoft. Now, more than six months later, Discord has confirmed that it will start to gradually roll out support for users on PlayStation consoles over the coming weeks.

“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 either PS4™ or PS5™ will be shown as your activity, just like that!” explains Discord in their official blog post, “You can even opt to display your PlayStation™Network online ID on your profile so your Discord friends can add you and tag along. It’s especially great for knowing if your friend is currently playing a game that supports cross-play on another platform.”

At the time of writing, I was able to link my PlayStation Network account to my Discord account using the simple instructions provided by the blog post but apparently, it isn’t available to everybody just yet. Check back later in User Settings > Connections if it’s not there for you at the moment.
