Some of you may have already noticed that we recently removed “Guest Mode” on Roblox. This means that users will no longer be able to play games as a guest on mobile or desktop platforms.
We think this is a great change for our developers as we’ve found that removing this mode of play increases the number of users playing with registered accounts. As you know, guests cannot do many of the things on Roblox that add value for users and developers including:
- Saving progress in games.
- Playing with friends.
- Purchase items in your games.
- Providing feedback on your games such as; Liking, Disliking or Favorite.
Requiring users to sign-up will ensure that new users have access to the full set of Roblox’s features, which we know helps us retain those users longer.
What does this mean for you as a developer?
An increase in registered users will drive more visits, increased revenue and player engagement in your Roblox games.
How does this improve the first time user experience?
This will encourage first time players to use our social and interactive features with other users.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve and enhance the Roblox platform for both players and developers.
Our team will update this thread once guest mode is completely disabled on all platforms.
