The gradual rollout of Discord integration on PlayStation started earlier this year, and a new report claims things will accelerate in the coming months.
Since Sony announced its partnership with Discord back in May last year, the PlayStation community has been quite excited about the prospect of Discord and its features becoming fully integrated into the PlayStation console experience. For multiplayer games and social features and experiences in particular, Discord integration should be a huge boost.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that the integration of Discord on PS5 would be beginning and going at a gradual rate, and now, a new report by prominent insider Tom Henderson on Exputer claims that full Discord integration on PlayStation consoles is coming soon enough.
Henderson claims that as per “several sources” – including those that leaked the PS5 Pro controller, which was recently officially unveiled as the DualSense Edge – Discord integration on PlayStation consoles has been in quality assurance for “a couple of months” and has apparently been going “very well”.
Allegedly, Discord will be integrated when version 7.0 is pushed for the PS5. A version 6.0 is also planned before that for sometime in September.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One are also getting support for Discord voice chat.
