Some Robloxians aged 13 and older can now access Roblox voice chat as part of a beta test in the massive sandbox game platform  that draws on users’ phone numbers for verification purposes, a Roblox  spokesperson confirmed to PCGamesN. If implemented, it would provide an  alternative form of age verification to the platform’s current  requirement that users provide a photograph of identification to confirm  their ages.

The Roblox spokesperson shared the following via email with PCGamesN:    “At Roblox, we believe that the metaverse is for everyone, and that  our communication capabilities we create must be for everyone too. As  part of this effort, Spatial Voice is an important rollout towards our  long-term vision for the future of communication.

With industry-leading measures (ID verification, moderation, etc.),  specific members of our community can use Spatial Voice to safely  connect with others on Roblox.    “Safety on Roblox is at the core of everything we do. We maintain  many systems to keep our users safe and secure and work tirelessly to  build a platform that is safe, civil and welcoming for all.

That includes ID verification which we launched last year and allows us  to offer select 13+ users the option to try Spatial Voice in Beta. We  started with ID verification, but it was always our intention to expand  to additional ways to verify identity in the future. Today, Spatial  Voice requires ID verification – a process that includes providing a  government issued ID and a selfie.”

“Since we announced the first test of this feature, we’ve been slowly  expanding the group of people with access to it. It’s a deliberate  process, and through it we’ve gained insights about how to scale it and  expand with new options like phone verification while maintaining our  high safety standards.”
