Discord Voice Chat Card


The voice chat card is a central hub that allows you to manage various aspects of voice communication on your PS5 console. It helps you switch between different voice chats, control audio settings, and interact with other members in the voice chat. Now, let’s break down the key components of the voice chat card to see what each part does.

1. Type of Voice Chat

This shows what kind of voice chat you’re using at the moment.

2. Switching Between Discord and Game Voice Chats

You can switch from your current Discord voice chat to a game voice chat. The card also shows how many voice chats you’re currently in. To switch voice chats, just browse through the list of ongoing voice chats you’re part of and select the one you want to join.

3. Discord Voice Chat Features

  • Audio Balance: Adjust the volume balance between the voice chat and other audio on your console.
  • Mute All: Mute everyone else in the voice chat.
  • Voice Chat Settings: Change your microphone’s volume.
  • Report: If you need to report a problem with a member, you can send a report to Discord’s moderation teams.
  • Leave: Leave the current voice chat.

4. Member List

This shows the name and avatar of each member in the voice chat. If a member has connected their PlayStation Network (PSN) account to Discord, you’ll see a PlayStation icon and their real name or online ID.

Clicking on a member lets you do things like:

  • Change their audio volume.
  • View their PSN profile if their accounts are linked.
  • Add them as a friend on the PlayStation Network.
  • See if they have PlayStation Plus, what game they’re playing, and what console they’re using.
  • Check if they’re speaking or if their mic is muted. Their avatar lights up when they’re speaking, and there’s a mute icon if they’re muted.
  • If they’re playing a joinable game, you can click “Join Game” to join their session.
