Roblox has always been a hugely popular gaming platform with an infinite number of games created by users from all over the world. Its popularity has remained stable since 2006, and it increased even more during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, as a result of an update that removed the audio from the games, Roblox's popularity has begun to wane. Players were angered because audio is so important in games. Because some games include custom audio, the removal of this feature has the greatest impact on game developers.
Flamingo, a popular YouTuber, has posted a video about removing the game's audio. He explained that Roblox is being sued by music publishers as a result of players uploading custom audio to the platform without permission.
Roblox Piggy, a popular game on Roblox, was one of the games affected by the audio update. The game's original audio, which helped it become popular, is now gone, and players are outraged, demanding that Roblox restore all of the audio that they removed. Also, as a result of the new guidelines, which took effect on March 22, the number of developers may gradually decrease.
The latest policy states that 'all new audio uploaded will be private, and all existing audio longer than six seconds will be set to private.' This means that game makers can still use their own audio in their games, but it is now limited to six full seconds. This also means that developers will no longer be able to freely exchange audio files.
A statement was released by Morgan T, a staff member of Roblox, in response to the feedback of infuriated players.
