Difference between Chat:FilterStringAsync and TextService:FilterStringAsync

What is the difference of them both, they both use FilterStringAsync but are both in two Services:



According to the documentation,

Chat:FilterStringAsync filters a string using filtering that is appropriate for the sending and receiving player. If the filtered string is to be used for a persistent message, such as the name of a shop, writing on a plaque, etc, then the function should be called with the author as both the sender and receiver.

This function should be used every time a player can enter custom text in any context, most commonly using a TextBox. Some examples of text to be filtered:

  • Custom chat messages

  • Custom character names

  • Names for a shop in a tycoon-style game

As for TextService:FilterStringAsync, in short, it’s used to filter text being received from a user in general.

I suggest you read the documentation for more info:

Okay Thanks i did but i could use both for Filtering it makes no difference, why there is two Times the same Function then, i dont see the difference
