How to Join the PlayStation Party Chat From a PC

Who said that gamers could gather and communicate with one another only on Discord? The PlayStation Party Chat created by Sony can also serve such purposes, but the difference is that only those using PlayStation consoles can embark on the little journey. PlayStation Party Chat members can communicate with one another using either text or voice messages.

You may have small difficulties when trying to join the PlayStation Party Chat for the first time. But don’t worry; as soon as you get the use of it, it’s just like riding a bike. You’ll never forget it!

How to connect your PlayStation console and the PC

If you want to hop into the PlayStation Party Chat on a PC without PlayStation 4, what you need to do first is use the PS Remote Player to pair your PC and PlayStation console.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head over to the PS Remote Play page and download the existing software to the PC.
  2. From your PS4 console, open the Settings menu and select ‘Account Management.’
  3. Enable ‘Active as Primary PS4.’
  4. Use the ‘System Software Update’ to see if there is any update available.
  5. Select ‘Settings,’ then go to ‘Remote Play Connection Settings’ and enable it.
  6. Make sure that your PlayStation console is on as long as you use Remote Play on your PC
  7. Go to ‘Settings’, then select ‘Power Save Settings.’ Select ‘Set Features Available in Rest Mode,’ and ultimately hit ‘Enable Turning on PS4 from Network.’
  8. Grab your computer and open the Remote Play app. Establish the frame rate and resolution that allow you the best gameplay possible that your machine allows.
  9. Make sure that your PlayStation console and PC are connected to the same WiFi network and begin the connection itself.
  • Use a USB cable to connect the PS4 controller to the PC or connect it wirelessly. Suit yourself!
  • Choose the device to connect.
  • Log in with your credentials.

Now that you got Remote Play working on your computer and the PC and console are synchronized, it’s extremely easy to start the PlayStation Party Chat.

There are a lot of popular PlayStation games out there that players love to play against one another, so you’ll surely never get bored while also using the PlayStation Party Chat feature! You can keep in mind titles such as World of Tanks, GTA Online (the online mode of GTA 5), Apex Legends, Fortnite, PUBG, and many more, for instance.
