Roblox won’t work on Google Chrome & it's frustrating many gamers (workaround inside)

Roblox is a popular multiplayer online game-creation platform with millions of active users that was initially launched in 2006 to allow enthusiasts to design, share, and play games with others over the internet.

As you would expect from such a popular gaming platform, Roblox is home to multiple gaming genres that include and are not limited to simulations, racing games, role-playing, and puzzles.

Whether you own an Android smartphone, a Windows or macOS computer, an iOS tablet, or even Microsoft’s Xbox, you can enjoy Roblox from anywhere. However, things haven’t been rosy at all for those playing games on Google Chrome browser.

According to reports dating back to late last year, Roblox won’t work on Google Chrome and it’s increasingly becoming frustrating for gamers.

This (screenshot above) and many other affected Roblox players have flocked Google Chrome help page with details of what’s happening to them and so far, no official response has come from the big G.

It’s understandable that players are a bit frustrated at Google for not addressing this issue months down the line. However, there is always a way out of such mystery, which is where the workaround comes in.

You’ll probably be surprised at the workaround in question. Apparently, a host of affected gamers say switching the browser to Microsoft Edge is the best decision they made because they no longer have to deal with Roblox issues.


Matter of fact, switching to a different browser (including Firefox) is one simple way of addressing not just the Roblox won’t work on Google Chrome bug, but also many others affecting the popular web browser.
