Chat with Friends on Mobile

August 30, 2016

Roblox is getting some major upgrades on mobile this year. Given that mobile players are the fastest growing audience on Roblox, we’re committed to helping you find even more reasons to play and connect with your friends wherever you go. A big part of that initiative is implementing a way to chat instantly with friends inside the app, just like you can on desktop computers. We’re excited to announce that our latest update on smartphones and tablets now allows you to do exactly that. That’s right – we’ve brought chat to both iOS and Android devices!

After updating your Roblox app to version 2.257.84176 for iOS or Android, you’ll be able to do the following:

  • Create 1-on-1 chats with friends by selecting their name from the list and sending them an instant message
  • Join or establish group chats by inviting up to five friends to a group
  • Send chat messages cross-platform to anyone on your friends list, even if they’re playing on a desktop computer

For easier accessibility, we added the chat function to the navbar at the bottom of the screen. You can still send, receive, and read messages the old way by tapping on the “More” tab and selecting “Messages” from the menu.

Make sure to update your Roblox app today to get your hands on this awesome feature! If you haven’t downloaded Roblox on your mobile device yet, you can grab it for free from the App Store (iOS), the Google Play Store (Android), or on Amazon (Android).

Staying true to our mantra of constant iteration, we have tons of other cool features coming soon that will continue to make chatting on mobile easier and more convenient. So, keep checking in to our blog or the official Roblox Twitter for the latest news and updates!
