Following the launch of ROBLOX on Android, many ROBLOXians wanted to know when we’d be launching the app for Kindle devices. We heard you, and we’re proud to announce that ROBLOX Mobile is now available in the Amazon App Store! The Amazon App Store allows you to download ROBLOX for any supported Android device, which now includes most Kindles and the Fire Phone.

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 Kindle, you even join the same games as your friends on Mac, PC, iOS, and other Android devices, 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 Amazon-exclusive items for your character (coming soon)
  • Customize your character appearance
  • Purchase ROBUX and Builders Club through your Amazon account
  • Exchange messages and chat with friends
  • View leaderboards
  • View and interact with your groups

The Amazon version of ROBLOX Mobile is supported on the following devices:

  • Kindle Fire HDX 7 (3rd Gen)
  • Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (3rd Gen)
  • Fire Phone
  • Fire HD 6 (4th Gen)
  • Fire HD 7 (4th Gen)
  • Fire HDX 8.9 (4th Gen)

The Client, Mobile, and Web teams have been working diligently over the last few months to make ROBLOX on Kindle a reality. The Amazon version of ROBLOX brings the same great mobile experience to a whole new set of devices, and 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 Kindle is available globally in the Amazon App Store.

If you’re not a Kindle user, ROBLOX Mobile is available in both the iTunes App Store (for iPad 2+, iPhone 4+, and iPod touch 5G+), as well as the Google Play Store (for a ton of Android devices).
