Here, the function is already available and that’s why we’ve separated a tutorial to help you in this task.

This means that it will be easier to coordinate an entry in the games, in addition to showing the nick (nickname) of your PSN account for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Before the step-by-step, it is worth remembering that it will be necessary to change the privacy settings of your PSN account, making your information visible to “Anyone“.
