Is there a discord app for ps4?

Well right now there is no official support for the discord app on the PS4, we also expect the next-generation PlayStation 5 to support discord on ps5 games, but, there is one solution to use discord on PS4 and PS5 or other consoles if you will have all the required equipment. This could take some time to set up but it worth it.

How to setup discord on PS4

 

Discord requirement for PS4

 
If you want to set up discord on PS4 you will need:
 
  • Headset like A40 TR with an optical cable that supports USB connection.

  • MixAmp to switch audio between your PC and PS4, like the Mixamp Pro TR. It works great with the A40 TR for this kind of setup, plus the MixAmp will make your chat gaming experience great.

  • Three cables: 3.5mm Male to Male, 3.5mm Aux Splitter, and 3.5mm to 3.5mm with Volume
  • And of course, you need to install discord on your PC.
Chatting using discord without this trusty gaming headset, is hard to imagine.

Using discord on PS4:

So, you have all the required items, let set everything up.
 
First, you need to power on your PS4; if it not already done; then connect your optical cable to the optical port of your Mixamp. After that take your USB cable and plug it into the back of your MixAmp and grab your PS4 and connect the other end of the optical cable to the back of the PlayStation 4. Finally, connect the other end of your USB cable to your PC.
 
After connecting the cables, in your PS4 open the settings, sound and screen and head over audio output settings:

Then change the audio output to optical:
 primary output port PS4
   
Next after plugging your USB cable into your PC and your MixAmp, make sure your MixAmp is on PC mode to do this press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, you can follow the notification on the PC to update the MixAmp if it not already done.
Now to your PC, head to discord click settings :

When you have set your input and output device click done and now you can freely talk through discord and use your PlayStation for audio at the same time.

How to fix audio from PC not going through the Headset:

 
You may notice that any audio played on your computer will not transfer through your headset,
 
This is because the PlayStation is taking up the primary audio on your MixAmp, to fix this you will need the 3.5mm male to male cable, connect this cable to your speaker port in your computer and the other end into the aux port on your MixAmp, then back to discord and change the output to speakers in your PC.

Can I use a web browser in my PS4 to connect to discord?

Yes, you can, but if you start gaming then you will lose audio from discord as the main audio stream will come from your games.

Can I use discord for party chat on PS4?

 
Party chat is a great feature, it can be used to chat using voice with other gamers, at the opposite of web browser discord setting this feature can let you chat while playing games.

Can I join the PS4 party chat on PC?

 
After setting discord on the PC using the A40 TR and the MixAmp you can download the PS4 Remote Play app on your PC which lets you control your console remotely, after opening it you can log in to your PSN account and let it run in the background.

Bottom line:

 
Discord is not officially supported in the PlayStation 4 platform, but because there are a thousand of requests sent to the discord team to build a new app for the PlayStation framework, this app will soon be available in the next generation PlayStation framework.
