How to Stream PS5 on Discord? Stepping Up Your Streaming Game

Lindsay Hayes

You'll need the PS Remote Play app if you want to stream PlayStation 5 content on Discord. It's completely free, and you can find it on the official Sony Interactive Entertainment website. Just remember that you can only use the app to stream on your desktop and not your phone.

Ever since I got Hogwarts Legacy on my PS5, I've been streaming it on Discord for my friends. Just a few days ago, my friend asked me how I did this since my PS5 is completely separate from my PC. But I broke it to him how incredibly simple it was.

So, if you'd also like a quick run down, I've got you covered.


How Do You Stream PlayStation 5 on Discord?

To stream PS5 on Discord, you will need the PS Remote Play app. It's available for both Mac and Windows. Unfortunately, this means that you can't stream what you're playing on the Discord mobile app.

If you're wondering, yes the app is completely free. Plus, you can use it if you want to share PS4 content too.

Here's how you can start the Discord streaming:

Once you're streaming, you can get your friends to join your Discord channel to watch. They can either do this on their computer or any mobile device, like Android smartphones or Apple devices.

This goes without saying, but you need a stable internet connection if you want to stream without any issues. You might end up stuck on buffer which your friends won't enjoy.

Can You Access Discord on the PlayStation Console?

PlayStation 5 users can join Discord voice channels from their consoles. I know what you're wondering now, so why can't you stream what you're playing directly from your PS? Unfortunately, this isn't something that you can do yet. I would've added it to the section above if this was the case.

I think this addition is really nice, as you can speak to your teammates through Discord voice call while on multiplayer games. But of course, you'll need a good-quality mic first.

Final Thoughts

I'm a hardcore PlayStation fan, and love streaming what I play on my PS console with my friends. It's easy to do this - you only need the PS Remote Play app and a stable internet connection. The app is completely free, and you might like that you can even stream PS4 content with it.

Essentially, it will mirror what you're playing on your console to the PS Remote Play page, which you can then share on Discord through the Share Screen feature. But you can't do it on your Apple device or Android phone, unfortunately.

Hopefully, you found all of the points that were discussed useful and are able to stream PS5 to Discord with ease now.
