An Emote is an action players can perform whilst in-game. There are currently 7 universal emotes (there are more than 7 just not known) and 102 purchasable emotes (Rthro and R15 only). Emotes were introduced on October 2, 2013.[1] The player must type in /e [emote] into the chat for the character to do a universal emote, or use the emote menu or /e to do a purchasable emote. All emotes are silent. The emotes only make your character move. Emotes can also be disabled by the game owner. If a player is sitting down, such as in a car or a chair, the player will receive a prompt telling them they cannot use an emote right now.

A full list of emotes can be found here.

The emote menu in-game

An emote menu was added to the Roblox launcher on June 24, 2019, as well as a section for emotes to be purchased in the avatar shop. The first emotes to be added were Tilt, Stadium, and Salute, all of which can only be used with R15 avatars. The emotes can be accessed in-game by the "..." icon on the top right and click "Emotes".

Before the implementation of the emote menu, players could also use these emotes by typing the general '/e' (emote name)' prefix.

It was removed after an hour of being live due to complaints from developers, including "the icon didn't fit well with the rest" and "this update was too sudden and uncalled for".[2] A few of the complaints were referencing the B key being overwritten without a warning. On July 1, 2019, an official follow up from Roblox was posted.[3]

On August 5, 2019, the emote menu was re-enabled, with the "B" key-bind removed. It was disabled again 2 hours after.

On August 19, 2019, the emote menu was once again re-enabled. It was confirmed in a blog post that it will stay.
