It is fascinating to make new friends on a gaming platform. You can play with each other on a single server, chat, and explore the world together in some of the best Roblox games. You can also become popular on Roblox multiplayer. It is like a whole new experience to grab.

You are not alone if you are unable to add friends to your list. And so, I am here to help you make new friends on Roblox.

There are many ways Roblox players can send a friend request.

Here are the methods to send friend requests on Roblox:

For Mobile

The following steps are applicable to all mobile devices regardless of iOS or Android. The in-game options are the same across all smartphones.

Keep in mind that you can’t cancel the sent request. So make sure you’re sending a friend request to the right account.

  • Press the Esc button to enter the game menu. Go to the Players tab if you’re not already there.
  • Select the Add Friend button with whom you want to be a friend.roblox-add-friends-in-game-2
