Roblox remains one of the most popular games in 2023, even though it was released back in 2006. One major reason for this is its availability on multiple platforms. However, does it support crossplay? Here’s everything you need to know.

Roblox enables you to create your games on the platform called Experiences. From RPGs to racing and even horror, the platform offers countless games of all genres and themes. In addition, with it being available on almost all platforms, you might wonder if it is cross-platform or not.

With that said, here’s all you need to know about playing Roblox games with your friends on PC, mobiles, and consoles.

Does Roblox support cross-platform play on PC, macOS, Android, iOS & Xbox?

Yes, Roblox does support cross-platform play. The feature is already built into the platform, allowing you to play on your PC, while your friends play through other supported platforms.

Some of the games might not work as intended on certain platforms since they are made by the players. But Roblox encourages developers to make sure their games are cross-platform compatible rather than optimizing for one platform while ignoring others.

Does Roblox support cross-progression?

Roblox allows for cross-progression. Cross-progression is a feature that allows you to continue playing a game after reaching a specified level on one platform and then moving to another.

This is great for you if you move around a lot since it can allow you to jump into the game wherever you are.

How to play crossplay with your friends on Roblox

To play crossplay with your friends on Roblox, you need to add them as your friend and then ask them to open their friend list and click on the “Join” button next to your name.

Xbox users will need to make sure that they have already added their friend to their friend list, if not, send them a request from a PC or a mobile. Here’s a guide on how to add your friends on Roblox. This is because the Xbox version of the game doesn’t allow you to search for your friends yet.

If you’re on a PS4 or a PS5, click on the three dots on the top-right of your screen and open Settings. Then, simply make sure that ‘Cross-Platform Play’ is enabled.
