[Update] March 23, 2023
ICYMI - Earlier this week we launched two feature updates to Player Invite Prompts feature! Take a look and please share your feedback with us!
We are very excited to announce the launch of Developer Driven Invites, an overhaul of our existing
SocialService:PromptGameInvite() that allows you to customize and improve the invite experience for your players.
With this update, you can now:
Set triggers for the invite prompt, such as a user approaching a specific location or completing a level.
Customize the text that users see in the experience when prompted to invite their friends.
Choose whether to display a single friend or a multi-friend invite.
Customize the text that users see when they receive an experience invite notification.
Set the desired spawn location for the invitee.
Our data shows that experiences that use in-experience invite prompts have 6x more users sending invites compared to those that don’t. These experiences see an 8x increase in invite volume overall.
It’s important to keep in mind that creating misleading experiences, such as promoting Free Robux, is against our community standards and can result in lower invite conversion rates, a higher experience churn rate, and subsequently lower to no distribution on Roblox.
We recommend adding custom invite prompts that are relevant to your experience’s purpose and theme, sending custom invite notifications that are more likely to engage recipients, and using single vs. multi-friend invite prompts based on the circumstances. You can also consider teleporting invitees right next to the friend who invited them if they are still in the experience or creating opportunities for users to co-experience asynchronously.
Please note that we will be rolling out the ability for users to see the custom notifications over the coming weeks; nonetheless, you are still encouraged to set them up from the get-go to ensure your players see them as soon as possible. Similarly, we will be adding the ability to localize these custom notifications via the Creator Dashboard in the coming months. We will append this announcement when this feature is live, stay tuned!
We hope that Developer Driven Invites will help you create even more engaging and immersive experiences for your players.
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
