PS5 Discord integration seen in the wild for the first time

Discord’s PS5 integration was first seen, suggesting we don’t have long to wait until we can easily create and join chat lobbies on our consoles.

The update appears to have been rolled out to users on Discord beta, according to images shared by Reddit Syhix User (opens in new tab). The mobile app screenshots show the ‘Join Voice on Playstation’ option and a prompt for the user to log in using their Playstation ID. Similar to the steps you take when linking your Xbox Live account to the Discord app.
