One World: Together At Home was a virtual concert event on Roblox spreading awareness of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event game opened on April 17, 2020, its event page was made public, and a blog post was published explaining how the event would specifically function. The actual concert was held on the next day. During the event, live footage of the TV program event was streamed on Roblox in a similar fashion to the 7th Annual Bloxy Awards.

The stream in general has been criticized for certain inappropriate sections being unfiltered, despite the inability to filter due to the event being live streamed into the game, and administrators receiving a file to make the game broadcast in the first place. In particular, the song, Mr. Brightside was performed by The Killers contained explicit portions that were not filtered prior to the broadcast.
The theater in general is criticized for the inability to hear sound other than full-screen mode, or if the user is very close to the screen. The exact same theater was used for the 7th Annual Bloxy Awards, with the exception of minor tweaks and a brand new currency, which also upset some users. Some gear, such as the cat and scooter, were glitched and unable to function properly.
The place also did not filter out Sounds from hats, leading to users being annoyed by the constant sounds playing from hats such as the Brighteyes' Witches Brew Hat. This, however, did not affect users in full screen mode. Still, it led to problems for YouTubers and live streamers as they could not utilize full screen due to copyright restrictions.
- This is the second official event to use the new Video feature, with the first being the 7th Annual Bloxy Awards.
- This is also the first Roblox event or place to ever broadcast a TV program, in a live format and altogether.
- Roblox reused the 7th Annual Bloxy Awards game for the concert, just with a few minor tweaks. Specifically, the theater is different in the sense that it introduces a different currency and a new variant of spotlights, but it shares much more similarities – such as data not saving after leaving.
- This is the first event to provide donations to a specific organization to fight a disease, which is specifically known as COVID-19. Donations could have been made by purchasing a Private Server for 10 Robux. As stated in the game description, proceeds made from donations would go "directly to the World Health Organization" to fight the pandemic.
