Roblox is a children’s game, where kids hang out, build stuff, create items and generally interact with each other in an open world. But when you look deep, you will also realize Roblox is much more than that. One feature that makes the game to be more exciting is messaging. This post will serve as a guide on how to send messages on Roblox in 2019.
There are two types of messaging in Roblox, they are:
- General chat messaging in group chat
- Direct messaging
General chat is just that group chat channel for each Roblox server where everyone can comment and join a conversation. Direct messaging is like DM you will find in other games or social networks, that is a private person-to-person chat. Both types of messages have their use, which is basically dependent on individuals. Roblox is a positive, child-friendly place to hang out. You always get one but the majority rules.
How to Send Messages on Roblox
Open Chat in Roblox
Open chat is fun in Roblox. As a user, you can create groups, link up with friends, or join existing groups on your server to chat while playing your game. Roblox is a simple system that offers the freedom to chat publicly while within a peer or friend group.
Follow these steps if you want to send messages on Roblox groups.
- Open Roblox and log in.
- Select the blue chat box in the bottom right of the screen.
- Select a friend, chat group or create your own group from the list.
- Type a message into the chat box and hit Send.
Selecting a friend or group means you have to join their channel. The channel should contain current conversations as they come in, but you will not be able to see historical chats or conversations that have already taken place before you joined.
You can also create your own chat group if you have a favorite subject or if you are hosting an event within Roblox. This can be done by the method listed below.
- Select the blue chat box in the bottom right of the Roblox screen.
- Select Create Chat Group at the top of the new chat window.
- Give your group a name.
- Select friends, you want to join your group.
- Type your chat as you normally would.
Creating a group on Roblox is useful if you are planning a group event or playing with friends. If you are already familiar with Roblox, I guess you will agree that collaboration and the social side are important parts of the game.
How to Send Direct Messages on Roblox
Direct messages can be used for all manner of things, from private conversations to arranging to meet up in a game. Direct messages are not moderated as far as I understand, but there are parental controls in Roblox that can be used to help manage your child’s interactions while using it.
To send a direct message, follow these steps:
- Open your Friends screen and select the name of the person you want to message.
- Select Message from the new page.
- Type the message and hit Send.
As long as the friend has the correct privacy settings you should be able to message them as you would in any game or social network. If you are not friends with them yet, you can still send a message to them. But all you need to do is to search for their name in the Friends list first. Depending on their privacy settings, you can direct message before adding them as a friend or you may need to add them first.
If the Message button is not selectable, you need to add them as a friend first. This is likely because “Safe Chat” is active.

How to Check Your Inbox in Roblox
Messages are saved in your inbox, which is easily accessed from the inbox page of your account. You should be able to see an alert by the inbox or notification tab depending on what you have. It normally shows up red so that you can easily see it.
Parental Controls for Messages on Roblox
Primarily, Roblox users are under 13 years of age, so parental controls will be automatic. This enables safe “Safe Chat” which restricts messaging to friends and prevents non-friends or randoms from messaging your child. This is a basic protection that also restricts the user from accessing all content and instead shows curated content that has been age-rated as appropriate.
How to o check parental controls in Roblox,? Simply do this:
- Log into Roblox as your child.
- Select Settings and Security from the menu.
- Select Account Restrictions to toggle it on or off.
While you are logged in, select Privacy and Contact Settings to check the chat and message settings. You can control who can message, friend, or chat to your child from there.
