There is highly increased latency in the text filter API. Users are reporting chat taking a minute or more to send their message and scripts using the API are yielding. I can also see this through the network statistics:
Status+ was also reporting that the latency of the endpoints spiked to 9k ms and this has been happening to our users for around an hour now.
We are also encountering this in our game. Players are also reporting that data is taking an increased time to load; our game uses several datastores because it’s a beta and poor design choice, so this effects us pretty heavily.
Yes, I run the site that tracks endpoint latency. This problem has gotten a lot worse the last few days:
You can see the severity of the issue by looking through the /history files:
Average response time is terrible.
Thank you for reporting! The issue is being investigated.
Chat being slow constantly for the past few days across the entire platform
Screenshots from Roblox top games
I’ve been witnessing the same problem as well in other games. Periodically the chat will be slow for loading.
Yes, I’ve had the same problem. The filter sometimes takes 15 seconds to load! Also, When you edit a post in the devforum it takes longer to load than usual.

I can confirm that the past few days, and even periodically throughout the month, the text filter has had increased latency that is affecting all of my games that heavily rely on text filtering.
Degraded Performance History:
This is still an issue and I experience it multiple times everyday.
Still has not been fixed. Lag goes up at certain times, and when playing games with bubble chat it takes about 5-15 seconds for the message to show up in the bubble.
it was experiencing problems last year’s fall and is still sometimes occuring while i’m testing in my games
