Native keyboard support for iPad

I have an iPad with Apples first party keyboard and out of habit when playing roblox games I hit ‘/’ to begin typing but nothing happens so I have to awkwardly go select the chat by hand then go back to my keyboard. Sometimes pressing enter to send my message also doesn’t work. It would be nice if roblox knew I was trying to open the chat on my tablet keyboard & worked a little better as the social experience on an external keyboard on roblox sucks right now.

With the new iPad released today supporting mouse/keyboard more than ever before, I’d love to see this…

Howdy. Welcome back. We’re approaching 3 years. I would still really like to see this work as it’s such a basic and useful feature.

To this day it’s beyond me why Roblox doesn’t support bluetooth keyboards/mice on mobile and tablet devices.

With how powerful tablets are nowadays and how common attachment keyboards for them are becoming this is just a no brainer.

Hi. This is still important! I play on my iPad like once a week and still try to press / to chat on my ipad keyboard and nothing happens.

Really support this.

I have an iPad with the Keyboard and I can’t chat and walk with it. This is really annoying.

Adding on to this, if we have a mouse and keyboard connected to our devices we should have the ability to turn on desktop mode for the Roblox app, so we can make our mobile devices act as a PC so you can do more advanced things with a keyboard and mouse.

I’m amazed that Roblox hasn’t added support for Bluetooth Keyboards/Mice. Even the Xbox Edition (which imo is the worse version of Roblox) has support for keyboards and mouses (at least wired, haven’t tested wireless cuz I hate Xbox Edition and don’t want to play on it at all.) Would allow for a lot more games to be accessible on mobile since the player will now be able to use a keyboard and mouse like a desktop/laptop experience. Would also make chatting 100x easier, sorry I just ain’t good typing on mobile keyboards.

I know it’s 3 months since the last comment on this but itz a good suggestion/feature idea

Minecraft pocket edition has the feature, and it works really well. It makes sense for them to add this feature since the majority of roblox players play on mobile.

This developer video shows its possible.
