Discord Voice Chat

PlayStation5, the ninth generation of home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently announced the rolling out of its recent feature which allows its players to join Discord voice directly from its PS5 console.

The Discord integration feature was updated last year by Sony, but the players were limited to using their phone or PC to initiate the connection.

In this article, we will look at what the announcement means to over 97 million monthly users in the PlayStation network and the 59.3 million PS5 users worldwide.

Response from the Players

The overwhelming majority of the players have expressed their joy from hearing the news with most talking about how excited they are to try out the new feature.

While the others talked about ending to their long-awaited journey to see Sony catch up to their announcement for the same made in early 2021.

Many of the players have also talked about the parts of the PS5 setup that could use similar upgradation in the near future with most of the players wishing to see options to stream their gameplay among the console options.

The only criticism that the feature encountered was the one talking about the working state of the new features introduced.

Some of the players talked about how the way to chat was a bit too sophisticated and felt a bit too clunk at most times.

The same opinion was agreed and disagreed upon by many players with the line of difference seeming to be tolerance of the players to navigate through the multiple settings to access the function.

Even with all these suggestions criticisms and feedback, the new Voice chat feature was something that every player thought to be well put out even though it was long overdue.

This was the general consensus of the players surrounding the new feature.

The Discord Voice chat feature however was not the only feature that was revealed in this bundle.

Sony has also announced that players will now be able to share their PlayStation Network profile on any messaging or social media app.

The detailed instructions and how-to guides for both features have been published by Sony on its blog and website.

 In the below section let us look at how a player can access these features through their console.
