Discord has just announced that players will now be able to link their Discord and PlayStation Network accounts to view their in-game activity in the chat platform. Whether you have a PS4 or a PS5, we explain how to link your two accounts.
Discord finally offers the ability to connect your PlayStation Network account to the chat app, following the announcement last May that Discord and Sony were ” bringing together the Discord and PlayStation experiences on console and mobile “. As the Discord blog post details, once the PSN account is linked, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners will have the option to view their activity when playing a game on either console. .
Additionally, players will also be able to post their PSN username on Discord, making it easier for other users to find them to play with. Sony is not the first to benefit from such an integration, since Microsoft had already rolled out the same functionality on Xbox in April 2018 .
HOW TO LINK YOUR PSN ACCOUNT TO DISCORD?
The procedure to link your PSN account to Discord is quite simple. Discord will even show a pop-up allowing you to link your accounts when you open the app over the next few days. If not, here are all the steps to follow:
- Open Discord and go to User Settings > Connections on PC or mobile.
- At the top, in the Connect your accounts section , you will find the PlayStation Network logo, click on it.
- Your Internet browser will open, and Sony will ask you to authorize your PSN account to connect. So just log in to link your accounts.
As we announced above, Discord specifies that once connected, two new options appear for your PlayStation Network account: “ Show on profile ” and “ Show PlayStation Network as your status ”. Note that in your PSN Privacy Settings, your “PSN Online Status” and “In Progress Game” visibility must be set to “Everyone” for your status to be visible on Discord .
Discord says it’s “excited to continue” its partnership with PlayStation, but nothing has been announced yet regarding the launch of an official Discord app for PlayStation . In the meantime, PlayStation players will be delighted to learn that in response to Microsoft, Sony has just bought out Bungie for nearly $4 billion.
