  2. Install the Remote Play app on your system.
  3. Now, make sure that your PS4 and your system are connected to the internet.
  4. Ensure that your PS4 is in Sleep Mode to make use of Voice Chat via Remote Play on PC.
  5. Connect the PS4 controller to your PC. You can do that either by connecting it via Bluetooth or by simply using a cable to connect each other.

And, that is how you join a PS4 Party. This method works perfectly fine if you have a PS5 and it even runs fine on a Mac system. However, if you are just going to talk to your friends, you can simply minimize the app or move it anywhere and you will still be able to talk to your friends. If you want, you can also play games and talk to your friends right away. Also, there are various settings for video quality and frame rate to tinker around, based on how good your internet connection is.
