The upcoming feature that will be released by Roblox in the near future is called voice chat. Even though it has not been released yet, the information about it, including about how it works and how to get or to turn it on has been leaked by Bloxy News to public and everyone has been talking about it.
How the Voice Chat Works
If it is your first time hearing voice chat, you will have to know how does this feature works in the platform first. According to Pro Game Guides, it allows everyone to communicate in real time with the other people on Roblox using a microphone. As reported by KreekCraft, a Proximity Chat feature will be used by Roblox for all voice chat purposes.
There are several requirements to get or turn on the feature called voice chat on Roblox. According to the leaked images, the players must be at least 18 or older to be able to use this feature. It means everyone under the age of 18 will be restricted from getting access to this feature. The main reason of it is due to the safety and security of those users who have not reached 18.
It is also a must for you to verify your age. You can do it by uploading the Photo ID to a portal called Veratad portal provided by Roblox. For those who are not familiar with this portal, it refers to a global identify and age verification software. This one is widely used by a lot of companies around the globe. The main function of this software is to confirm the authenticity of a Photo ID. With it, there will be no fraud. The team guarantees that all photo identification that is stored in a state of the art data center facility is safe and is monitored 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Actually, Veratad does not belong to Roblox. It is the one that is trusted by Roblox to keep the identities of the user safe and secure.
When uploading, feel free to use a file from your device or take a picture of your Photo ID with a mobile device. The easiest and the most recommended one is to capture a Photo ID with a mobile device as the camera has an automatic scanning functionality. Even though there is no confirmation as of now, it seems like the users have to provide government identification that will be placed in the Veratad system.
If you do not meet one more requirement mentioned above as you are under 18 and or you do not upload the Photo ID to a portal provided by Roblox, it is almost certain that all voice chat features will be disabled and restricted from your account.
