Last year, we completely reworked the in-game bubble chat. We’ve been listening to your feedback and are excited to release even more improvements + customization features!
(if you haven't already, here's how you can enable bubble chat)
Enable it through the
BubbleChatEnabled property in the Chat service (game.Chat):
Or through a (client-side) script:
local chat = game:GetService("Chat") chat.BubbleChatEnabled = true
New Customization Options
We’ve added many new settings through the SetBubbleChatSettings API to support things like: images, gradients, and better animations.
Here are just a few of the additional customization options that have been added since the release of the new bubble chat in October 2020. For full details, refer to the DevHub article below.
- BackgroundImage settings
- BackgroundGradient settings
- SizeAnimation & TransparencyAnimation settings
Different Styles for Different Users
You can now create unique chat bubble styles for specific users types! For example, you could add a visual distinction to differentiate between teams, friends, or even game pass-owners. Read more about
UserSpecificSettings in the Dev Hub article linked below.
