Are you experiencing … miscommunication? Is your signal spotty? If you’re having trouble connecting via PlayStation Party Chat, you might not be alone. It looks like some players are reporting an error associated with the PS5’s party chat service and are looking for any and all fixes. So, let’s take a dive into the abyss and find out what — if anything — can be done to solve this crisis in communication.

How to Fix PlayStation Party Chat Error

So, like with many other in-game errors, the first step should always be checking the server status for the game, or in this case, service. After all, if the issue is widespread, there may be nothing you can do. If, by chance, the server status doesn’t indicate a widespread problem, there are some actions you can take.

To start, do a speed test on your internet connection. If you’re finding the results are lower than you expect, it might be worth contacting your internet service provider. You could be experiencing an outage, or perhaps weather conditions are negatively impacting your signal. If you’re connecting via WiFi, you might want to try connecting via ethernet to see if the problem is with one or the other.

But, before you contact your ISP, it’s a good idea to manually restart your router. If the problem persists after you’re back online, then you’d probably want to contact your ISP.

By chance, if you’re privy to more technical knowhow, you could try adjusting your console’s DNS settings to either Google’s (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4) or Cloudflare’s (1.1.1.1 or 1.0.0.1). If none of that made sense to you, we would advise you to be extremely careful and err on the side of caution. If all goes well, you’ll once again be connecting to PlayStation Party Chat sooner rather than later.
