Yes, gamers can play Roblox on a computer or mobile device without installing the app. They can do so by using web browsers like Google Chrome and Safari to visit the official website and logging into their account.

However, the app offers a specific interface for accessing the offered games and features, enabling a more fluid and streamlined gameplay experience. Both of these options are available for players to choose from depending on their devices.

Roblox gaming can tax the system, especially the CPU, graphics card, and RAM. The complexity and the features of the title being played can affect how much load there is. Games on the platform are created by individuals, and some may be more sophisticated than others.

How to play Roblox without the desktop app


Here are the steps to launch and play any game on the website:

  1. Go to through your browser to access the official website.
  2. Your username and password are required to log into your account. Clicking the Sign Up button will let you create a free account if you don't already have one.
  3. You will be directed to the home page. By selecting the Games option at the top of the page from here, you can browse the entire library, or you can use the search bar to look for a specific title.
  4. Once you locate the game you wish to play, click on its thumbnail to access its page.
  5. To start the game, click the Play button on the game's page. If it is paid, you might need to first spend Robux, the platform's virtual currency, to buy it.
  6. You can begin playing the game after it has been loaded in a new tab or window. Your character can be moved using the WASD or arrow keys on the keyboard. The game may also require you to click on items or use additional controls.
