Does PS4 have discord?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

As of now, the PlayStation 4 (PS4) does not have an official Discord application available for download on its platform. However, there is a workaround that allows you to use Discord while playing games on your PS4.

To use Discord on your PS4, you will need a computer or a mobile device that can run the Discord application. Here are the steps to set it up:

1. On your computer or mobile device, download and install the Discord application from the official website or your device’s app store.

2. Create a Discord account or log in to your existing account.

3. Connect your computer or mobile device to the same network as your PS4.

4. Open the Discord application and go to User Settings by clicking on the gear icon at the bottom left corner.

5. In User Settings, go to Voice & Video settings.

6. Under Input Device, select your microphone or headset that you want to use for voice chat.

7. Under Output Device, select your computer or mobile device’s speakers or headphones.

8. On your PS4, go to Settings from the main menu.

9. In the Settings menu, scroll down and select Sound and Screen.

10. Choose Audio Output settings and set your Primary Output to Digital Out (Optical).

11. Connect an optical audio cable from your PS4 to a compatible audio device, such as a soundbar or receiver, that supports optical input. This step is necessary to ensure the game audio is routed through your audio device instead of the TV.

12. On your PS4, launch the game you want to play and adjust the in-game audio settings to your preference.

13. Now, you can join a voice chat on Discord using your computer or mobile device and communicate with others while playing games on your PS4.

It’s worth noting that this workaround allows you to have voice chat through Discord while playing games on your PS4, but the game audio will still be played through your audio device. This setup may require additional equipment, such as an optical audio cable and a compatible audio device, depending on your setup.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you set up Discord for voice chat on your PS4. Enjoy your gaming and communication experience!
