If you have AirPods and you want to use them while playing games, there’s a way to go about it. Since the PS5 doesn’t have built-in capabilities, you’ll need an adapter to connect your AirPods to it. You just plug in the Bluetooth adapter and pair your AirPods.
However, there’s a limitation to this. Despite the fact that AirPods have a built-in microphone, you’ll not be able to voice chat with your friends. Instead, you are only able to hear the gameplay and interactions that you make with the interface. You can use the AirPods to listen to music or watch a movie when they’re connected. Below are the steps to connect AirPods to your PS5.
