How to use Discord on a PlayStation 5

Before doing this, make sure you already have a Discord or PlayStation account to make the process easier. Once you’ve done this, go to the Settings option in your PlayStation 5, and in the Users and Accounts section, you can find the Linked Services option. You should be able to find where you can place a link to your Discord Account.

If the Discord option is visible (depending on your PS5’s firmware version), make your way to the link shown on-screen. Alternatively, you can choose to go through the QR Scan that’s shown. When you open the link, type in the code on the screen’s right side, connecting the two accounts.
