Sony will let you perform Discord integration on PS5. Currently, it will be available for beta testers. Moreover, they can join the Discord voice calls on a PS5 console.
Beta testers in the US, Japan, the UK, and Canada can test this feature. Users can link their accounts to join the Discord calls. Moreover, they will have to use the Discord mobile app to transfer calls to PS5.
Sonay will add the Variable Refresh Rate for 1440p. Moreover, there will be various dashboard improvements. This may be a result of Microsoft adding Discord support on the Xbox.
Currently, users cannot access the Discord services on PS5 directly. Users can either use a PC or mobile phone to transfer the call.
Discord Integration on PS5 Vs. Xbox:
In November last year, Microsoft announced adding Discord support for Xbox. The best part is that you can add Discord voice channels directly from your console. Moreover, you can access the new Captures app and other improvements.
This is a fantastic thing for Xbox users but not for PS5. However, we can expect that Sony will improve this feature with time. The best part is that PS5 will get Variable Refresh Rate support for 1440p resolution.

How To Link Discord to PS5?
Discord integration is complex on PS5. It is very similar to the Xbox. This blog on Discord will tell you how to set it up and use it.
- Link your PlayStation Network (PSN) account to Discord.
- Select the Discord option under “Linked Services.”
- Then complete the integration using the integrated browser of PS5 or QR code.
Whenever you want to use Discord Chat on the console, you must use your mobile phone to transfer your conversation. And this is not an ideal thing to do.
Sony Is Improving PS5 Dashboard
Sony has been improving the PS5 dashboard, mainly targeting the share screen and part chats feature. Moreover, it has also added a “friends who play” tile. Therefore, allowing users to see which friends are playing a game.
Currently, the PS app only supports upload for game chips or screenshots. With the new update, users can upload game captures manually. Moreover, the company will allow users to access the PS5 saved data on a PS5.
This means that PS5 can still hold the data of PS4. Most importantly, users transfer their PS5 data from one console to another using a LAN connection or Wi-Fi. As of now, Sony is releasing the new beta software to testers today. And users will get this software in the upcoming months.
