Roblox is releasing a new feature that could make people SUE Roblox!

A little under a year ago, Roblox announced that it would be working on a new Voice chat feature to players over the age of 13. At the time, this roblox feature was greatly hyped up in the roblox community, but others worried about the possible consequences of releasing something that, unlike text, could not be easily censored.

Now, a year later, roblox is slowly releasing voice chat to all roblox players, regardless of age. But before we get any further into what might as well be the messiest controversy in all of Roblox history, you might want to know what voice chat is, as well as its importance in all gaming communities.

What Is Voice Chat?

Voice chat is what it sounds like: a voice chat! On roblox, it is similar to proximity chat (something which many Minecrafters use in SMPs) it allows users to speak to one another as if on a call, except once a player’s avatar moves far away enough, they cannot hear other player’s voices.

Also similar to a call, players can turn on and on their microphone as they please. But with that out of the way, we can move on to voice chat’s importance in all gaming communities.

Voice Chat’s Relevance and Importance In The Gaming Community

Games such as Payday 2 (a popular game which can be downloaded on Steam) require communication– and lots of it! But during the heat of the moment in games with a combat system you probably won’t have time to furiously type away at your keyboard and hit enter before you die/get killed. That’s why in most games with a combat system, they will also usually have voice chat (ex: Payday 2, Fortnite, etc.). Roblox, with its many combat-based games (ex: Jailbreak, Shindo Life, Grandpiece Online, Arsenal, etc.), also needed this feature.

Roblox did just that, however now they are rolling out this feature for all players– even the younger ones. This could expose them to inappropriate things (ex: cussing) that they haven’t discovered for themselves just yet, whether it be that they might be too young, or just slow at figuring out things (no offense meant). Now, onto some of the more “messy” parts of this whole ordeal.

The Controversy

It’s no secret that Roblox want’s to shield it’s younger player-base from inappropriate content, it’s easily shown by Roblox’s actions, such as censoring inappropriate words by turning them into hashtags (or as many players call it, “tags”), banning people who’ve uploaded inappropriate images to the roblox avatar shop or developer decal “shop”, as well as deleting games with inappropriate content in them. But now, all of a sudden, roblox is allowing players of all ages to use voice chat!

Unlike text, audio is much, much, harder to censor and therefore poses a serious threat to the innocence of children, who may, through roblox voice chat, be exposed to stuff their parents might not want them to see or hear about. Onto the brighter side of releasing Voice Chat to all ages, we can see a few positive consequences.

The Bright and The Dark

You might think that this whole problem could just be avoided if parents refused to allow their child to register for voice chat, and if you did, then you would be correct! This is one of the solutions to this whole drama, however, it cannot be permanent. Some children might not abide by their parents’ wishes and register for voice chat anyways. This might spark some lawsuits against roblox, and, if the side opposing Roblox were to win (or at least cause some outrage), similarly to the case of refunding deleting/banned shirts and t-shirts back in 2021, Roblox would change their policy, which in this case would be to revert voice chat back to solely being available to ages 13+.

You, You, You.
