1. How to get voice chat on Roblox with ID

Roblox has just officially released its special voice chat feature on November 10, 2021.  They have been working on voice chat since February 2021 and have been testing it over the last few months. Players need to register to unlock the feature, and below are Roblox voice chat requirements as well as detailed guide on the verification process.

In order to access voice chat, players need to be over 13 years old and have to upload their Photo ID to a portal provided by Roblox. If they do not meet either of these requirements, all voice chat features will most likely be disabled and restricted from their account.

A phone camera is required for this process. Just turn on the Roblox app and snap a photo of the user's driver's license, passport, or ID card. The photo will then be scanned by Roblox's photo processor for authentication. Afterward, the app will ask players to take a selfie to prove "likeness" and "liveness". You need to use a live selfie and not static photos from a camera roll, as the entire process is checked using bots.

The entire Roblox voice chat verification process should only take a few minutes.

Why did Roblox create this verification requirement?

With almost half of Roblox's player base under the age of 13, the law requires them to properly manage the safety of younger users. This feature would be a layer of protection, as only verified people would be able to access voice chats.

This will prevent the more impressionable users on the platform from potentially unfit and inappropriate content for a younger audience.

2. How to get voice chat on Roblox without ID

However, if you are not willing to give Roblox an ID or do not have an ID, there are still ways to access the game's voice chat. Below are the various options you can pick to pass Roblox voice chat verification without ID:

  • Get help from other people and use their ID. This is the easiest method, as one of your family members might fulfill the requirement easily.
  • Use a fake ID and picture that can be found on the internet.
  • Use third-party voice chat softwares like Discord or Skype.

The first and third options are probably the most feasible. If you are on discord, just connect to it while playing and open up a voice chat session. However, the other players also need to use the service.

3. How to enable voice chat on Roblox

Once you have fulfilled Roblox voice chat requirements, the option would be unlocked within the setting menu. Follow these steps below to turn on voice chat on Roblox:

  • On mobile, find and click the circle with three dots in the bottom right corner. Afterward, scroll until you see the cog icon. Once you do, click it and then select Privacy.
  • On PC, look for the gear icon in the upper right corner, then from the drop down menu click Settings. From settings, locate the Privacy tab from the left side menu.

Clicking on this tab will open your privacy options on both PC and mobile. You should see the Enable voice chat button under the heading Beta Features. It would be turned from gray to green if you click it to toggle voice chat on.

Currently, there is no way to toggle this voice chat option from an Xbox. To do that on the console, you will need to have access to the Roblox app or website.

4. Roblox voice chat rules and when to use

Currently, there has been no official statement from Roblox about regulating what can be said over voice chat. This means swearing is completely OK and will not result in any punishment from the developer. However, this might change in the future as the system is still being developed.

Furthermore, not all Roblox games would be compatible with voice chat. It is completely up to the developers to either allow or disallow it. If you are looking for a game to test your voice chat feature, Mic Up is probably the current favorite.
