We know developing for multiple devices can be difficult. Most of you probably don’t have every single Roblox-capable device just lying around to test with. Even if you did, you shouldn’t have to deploy and switch devices every time you want to preview a change. Testing is a core part of the development cycle, and it should be both accessible and fast. To accomplish this, we are investing heavily into our emulation capabilities. Our vision is to move towards accurate platform emulation–you should be able to preview your experience across devices with varying capabilities and “see what your users see” to ensure everything works as expected.
With improvements to our emulation capabilities on the horizon, we wanted to first ensure that the devices in Studio are consistent, high quality, and accurate. Today, we are releasing two things:
An update to the device list to reflect the most used mobile devices on the platform, adding:
- Apple iPad 7th Generation
- Apple iPad 6th Generation
- Apple iPhone XR
- Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019, 10.1)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019, 8.0)
- Amazon Fire HD 10 (2019)
A visual refresh of all the devices in the emulator! With these higher quality device frames, no longer will you have to see super pixelated edges or burn your eyes in dark mode.
Look out for new emulation features and capabilities coming soon! Please let us know if you have any emulation requests.
