Interesting to see Roblox try this after the last version’s purported failure. I’m always excited to see new revenue opportunities, but I’ll personally be trying to keep ads off my games for the time being.


I’m really glad to see this finally being added! It was more often than not the kind of feature that you expected was there and was shocked it was missing. I had some hacky implementations of this, and I’m looking forward to cleaning up my codebase.


I’m lowkey really excited about this one, there has been a couple of times in my UI where this would’ve been useful. Will it also be usable in the website? Can we get the UTF8 code?

the \u{E001} syntax is something you can put inside of strings in your scripts. Alternatively you can paste these characters directly:

Premium icon: 
Robux icon: 

These aren’t yet enabled for use. I don’t think these will be usable on the website.

These monochrome icons can be recolored using TextColor3/RichText. The reason the Robux one isn’t the green one with the shading is because our emoji rendering doesn’t support gradients.

It’s still pending? Even after 4 weeks and 5 versions? Oh, man…

These characters are part of the private use area, which are meant for application-specific usage. Any font can have its own take on what these characters mean. I guess that Apple decided they should be copies of default emoji?

I’m excited for this, these emojis will definitely come in handy. Gone are the days of manually positioning robux and premium icons around! (Well, almost)

I didn’t know there was a private use area for unicode characters, pretty neat to know. I guess this implies that the engine will be able to define more custom emojis after this change, which is quite cool, could maybe lead to some cool features.

For example, maybe this evolves in the future and we get the ability to add our own custom emojis, maybe as a sub feature of custom fonts. :flushed: Games could create their own emoji fonts or emoji sheets or something, even if they’re just monochrome.
