Well, I have decided that email isn’t always the best way of communicating to a person, for some people don’t check their emails every day. Since this is the case for some people, and the fact that email isn’t always the best option since there could be some issues, I have introduced a new way of communicating to our followers and readers.
It is Skype, one of the most popular instant message apps out there. There are a few hundred million people using Skype, so I figured it would be a way of better communication. Plus, it’s better than having to dig through tens of hundreds of emails (depends on how long you haven’t read them).
On the Skype platform, you will be notified about various activities such as new post, new YouTube video, and RGC calendar events at this time. We will also start to send messages directly from staff members to alert of important and non-important events regarding ROBLOX and RGC.
However, people can still send unwanted messages through Skype, so we will look out and try to protect the conversation from spam as much as possible. People who send inappropriate or offensive content over Skype will be kicked from the conversation.
Updates are more simpler and faster with our new Skype conversation.
ROBLOX has released mobile push notifications on iOS and Android! Now, you can get a notification when you get a friend request, chat message, private message, and if a user has accepted your friend request. It is completely optional, so you can opt-in or opt-out.
Sorry Windows 10 Mobile and Amazon Kindle/Fire users, notifications are not released on your platform yet. 😦
Although this is a new feature, not all push notifications are “pushed” yet. For iOS users, you can only receive chat messages at this time.
For Android users, you can receive all notifications except private messages.
Also, you can only enable push notifications if you are over the age of 13. Sorry for the ones who are younger!
To enable these notifications:
Open the ROBLOX app
Go to Settings > Privacy
Go to the “Notifications” section
Enable “Mobile Push” by flipping the switch
Enjoy your notifications!
And, to disable it, repeat the same process except disable “Mobile Push” by flipping the switch again.
Android users will have notifications set by default, but iOS users will need to opt-in.
Again, notifications are released only on Android and iOS devices. Billy is mad that his platform is not supported yet.
Billy is mad that his platform is not supported yet. 😡 lololol
Push notifications are a great way to stay in touch when you are not on the ROBLOX app! Just turn them on, and enjoy!
