Roblox Corporation recently told The Verge that over half of kids in the US are now keeping in contact via Roblox. The global COVID-19 pandemic lead to sharp increases in active users throughout both March and April, totalling two thirds of all US children under the age of 16. Since then, the numbers have apparently continued to rise to reach their current all-time high of 120 million players.

Currently, Roblox is also beta-testing a system called “Party Place”—virtual social spaces players can use for meetups. Initially only available to Roblox’ own developers, the private Party Place servers first became cheaper to use for private events and are now set to be available entirely for free. On April 18, Roblox hosted its large One World virtual concert via Party Place.
