Social Chat | Enhance your experience with spectacular social chat features!

Introduction :bulb:

Roblox is a platform built off of the idea of socializing with peers and having fun with others. While many developers find their own ways to boost social factors in their games, Social Chat aims to enhance chat features that the Roblox Chat doesnt already have!

These features include (but are not limited to):

Custom Emoji Support :sunglasses:


In Depth API features for unique chat messages and visuals! :fireworks:

A Highly customizable Bubble Chat System!


Custom chat highlights for readability!


…and much more!

You can grab the latest version of the system here or see it in game for yourself!

Documentation :memo:

In this section I go in depth in terms of SocialChat’s API usage! (alternatively you can find some reference material inside of each respective environment module)

Initially, you must retreive the SocialChat module in your desired script by using the following code:

local SocialChat = require(game.ReplicatedStorage.SocialChat);

Server API :desktop_computer:

:MuteClient ( Client : Player , Duration : number? )

→ Mutes the provided client for the specified duration of n seconds (if one was provided), otherwise the player will have to be unmuted using the :UnmuteClient() method.

:UnmuteClient ( Client : Player )

→ Unmutes the provided client if they were previously muted.

.PlayerChatted:Connect ( function( playerWhoChatted : Player , messageSent : string , chatMetadata : table )

→ A RBXScriptSignal that can be connected to via the :Connect() method which fires upon a new chat message being received by the server.

NOTE: The messageSent parameter is NOT filtered! This is useful for cases such as admin commands etc.

Client API :computer:

:CreateChatMessage ( speaker : string , message : string , metadata : table? )

→ Creates a chat message on our own client that can be used for things like server tips, announcements, etc.

Example Usage:

    "TIP", -- this parameter can be set to "nil" if you dont want a speaker tag in your message
    "Did you know that John Shedletsky hid his chicken stashes all around Robloxia?",
        ["MessageColor"] = Color3.fromRGB(155, 65, 65),
        ["SpeakerColor"] = Color3.fromRGB(255, 80, 80)

:CreateBubbleMessage( Agent : Model , message : string , metadata : table )

→ Creates a Chat Bubble for the specified Agent Instance parameter.

USAGE WARNING: This method will only work if the “IsBubbleChatEnabled” setting is enabled in the ChatSystemConfigurations module! This method also requires the Agent model parameter to have a Head BasePart object

:RenderText( text : string , container : Instance , metadata : table? , additionalXSpace : number? ) : table

→ This it the method used to render all of the system’s messages! You can use this method to render text on an external source!

:GetModules() : table

→ Returns a table of SocialChat’s Client modules (eg. ChatSystemConfigurations, ChatSystemEmotes, etc.)

Does this system rely on DefaultChatSystemChatEvents.SayMessageRequest(msg, channel)? If so, this might stop working in the future.


This looks great! However, what features does it have that other custom chat systems (such as BetterChat) don’t have?


Nope! This is completely non-reliant on any Roblox events :slight_smile:


Well I included a few emote features as well as some context highlights for “Polish”, but I do plan to add more in the future. This is more of a barebones chat system for developers who need a forked non-Roblox chat to build upon.


i’ve always liked these types of chats

reminds me of twitch streamers and such active stuff, makes conversation so much more fun

thank you

Could you show me this bug? I’d be interested in fixing it for SocialChat’s next update :slight_smile:

Could you add support for HD Admin (command autofill) and being able to scale the chat box? It’d be 10/10 if this was added :grinning:. Other than that, 9/10

This doesn’t seem to support special symbols, こんにちは turns into this:


This is Roblox’s problem. Try making a feature request for more supported characters.
