Did Roblox add voice chat?

Recent leaks support voice chat is coming sooner than we think.

No, Roblox did not add voice chat into the game just yet, but recent leaks show that the feature is closer than ever. But recent leaks show that the developers at Roblox are hard at work implementing the feature. Some users have captured screenshots of a new notification asking players for access to their mobile device's microphone.

Reported by Bloxy News on Twitter, Apple device owners might encounter a pop-up window letting the user choose between turning on the microphone feature or preventing the feature from operating. This is the standard pop-up Apple devices notify users of when apps and games implement voice chat. The image in the tweet below shows a screenshot from a user running Roblox on a Mac device.

Bloxy News also followed up the original tweet stating that Android devices may also receive the pop-up similar to Apple users. This report was also confirmed by @Roblox_RTC, stating that users received the microphone notification on iPads and additional iOS devices.

Voice chat, however, is still not functional in the game. Users do not have the option to enable voice chat within the platform's settings, despite receiving the microphone notification. All this pop-up means right now is that Roblox is perhaps finalizing the steps toward enabling voice chat across the platform. This could mean that voice chat is arriving sooner rather than later, but the company has not announced an official date.

The voice chat feature in Roblox remains a popular discussion throughout 2021 ever since the company teased its development during the Investor Day stream in Feb. 2021. Many fans were disappointed to discover the feature will only be allowed for users aged 18+ to maintain the safety of all players across the platform. Users must also provide photo ID verification through Veratad, a trusted global identity and age verification software.
