ROBLOX Arrives on Android
by Andrew Haak
You’ve been asking for it for months. We’ve been teasing it for weeks. Finally, after all the anticipation and waiting, ROBLOX has arrived on Android and you can get it now for free in the Google Play store! Hurray!
ROBLOX Mobile lets you explore the thousands of games created by builders and developers, trade messages with friends, customize your character, and more. When you play on Android, you even join the same games as your friends on Mac, PC, and iOS, so you can play anywhere, with everyone. While ROBLOX spreads even further across platforms, we’re making sure you and your friends always stay connected in the same virtual world.
Here’s a brief overview of the app’s features:
- Play ROBLOX games
- Purchase Android-exclusive items for your character (coming soon)
- Customize your character appearance
- Use Google Play Store gift cards to purchase Builders Club and ROBUX
- Exchange messages and chat with friends
- View leaderboards
- View and interact with your groups
The Client, Mobile, and Web teams have been working diligently over the last few months to make ROBLOX on Android a reality — and a great mobile gaming experience. The app has the distinction of being one of the few games to be powered by user-created content. It also furthers the reach of ROBLOX’s community of builders and game developers, who can now open their creations to players on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices by publishing them to ROBLOX.
We’re really excited about finally getting ROBLOX into the hands of Android users. Please try it out today and let us know your feedback. ROBLOX for Android is available now in the U.S. and Canadian Google Play stores and will be out globally (135 countries!) by Thursday morning in Google Play stores worldwide.
And if you’re not an Android user, ROBLOX Mobile is also available in the iTunes App Store for iPad 2+, iPhone 4+, and iPod touch 5G+.
