How To Use Discord On PS4 Without PC

In this guide, we are going to talk about different methods that can help you use Discord on PS4 without PC.

While there is still no full-feature PS4-based Discord application, I came across some workarounds that can help you use Discord on PS4 without a PC. However, you cannot avail all the usual Discord features on PS4 since the two apps are not officially integrated.

Key Takeaways

  • You can use Discord on PS4 by installing Discord on your phone and connecting it to your PSN account.
  • Use Discord’s chat feature by accessing it via the PS4 Internet Browser on the console.
  • Make audio calls over Discord by installing it on your phone and connecting it to the PS4 console via PS Remote Play using a PSN ID.

Connecting Your Discord Account To PS4

Before moving on, I linked the two accounts together to synchronize the required information, such as the Discord friend list.

To connect your Discord to your PS4, follow this method:

  1. Download the Discord app on your phone > Install > Open it.
  2. Go to User Settings > Connections > Tap the PS icon.
  3. Enter your credentials to log in to your PSN account > The Discord account is now connected to your PSN account.
  4. Enable Display On Profile and Display PlayStation Network As Your Status > Set PSN Online Status and Now Playing visibility to Anyone.
Note: You can not chat with anyone. Only your game progress will be visible to your friends and community. 

Using PS Remote Play

PSN Remote Play was handy when searching for ways to use Discord on PS4. After connecting, I set the video parameters to the lowest settings to reduce the bandwidth used and avoid audio latency.

For this, you would need a PSN account and a mobile phone:

  1. Download and install PS Remote Play on your phone > Open it and sign in to the same account logged in to your console.
  2. In the app, go to Settings > Video Quality For Remote Play > Choose the lowest video quality.
  3. Connect your hands-free/headset to your phone > Open the Discord on your phone > Join the call or voice channel you want to participate in.
  4. You also need to enable Remote Play from the console. Move to Settings > Remote Play Connection Settings > Enable Remote Play.
  5. Return to the Remote Play app > Tap the button to connect to your PS4 console.
  6. This will allow you to play games on the console while speaking to your Discord friends.

Use The PS4 Web Browser

I also used the PS4 web browser to access Discord on my console. Accessing Discord with this method took less time than the previous one, and I could also use the voice chat feature.

Here is what I did:

  1. Come to Homescreen > Library > Applications > Internet Browser.
  2. Ensure that JavaScript is enabled. Press Options > Mark Enable JavaScript checkbox.
    Enable JavaScript in PS4

  3. Type in the URL Bar > Press R2 to go to the website > Sign in to your Discord account.
  4. Press R3 to zoom in on the screen to read the news and messages sent by other members.

Moreover, this technique also proved to work for several other users, as seen in the comments of this YouTube video.

Tip: You can also send messages by typing in the given field and then selecting the Enter button on the PS4 onscreen keyboard.

Connecting my Discord account to the PS4 was a bit technical since there is no official way to use the two accounts together; however, the workarounds mentioned above made it easier for me. During the research, I did not find any official news indicating the official integration of Discord into PS4, although Discord’s voice chat feature is available for PS5.
