ROBLOX is finally going to add voice chat to the game – after years of only offering text. Here's a quick guide on everything we know about the upgrade so far. What is Roblox voice chat? Roblox is a wildly popular "building" game like Minecraft. Until now, players could only communicate via text – but that's about to change. "Text chat is the core of Roblox communication today," said Roblox engineering chief Adam Miller. "In the future, we expect to open up communication through safe voice chat." There's no official release date for voice chat. Is Roblox voice chat safe? While most fans are happy about voice chat, there are some concerns around safety for younger players.

Tory Rishi Sunak today announced changes to tax, furlough and Stamp Duty in his 2021 Budget . The Chancellor said he must take "unpopular" and "honest" decisions as he reversed some Tory Corporation Tax cuts and cancelled an Income Tax break for millions of Brits.

AMAZON has changed its logo AGAIN after it was trolled for "looking like Adolf Hitler". The new design is tweaked to remove any similarity to former Nazi chief. Amazon's mobile logo has looked rubbish for years, so a new version was rolled out in January. The image was meant to resemble one of the US shopping giant's brown delivery boxes emblazoned with its "smile" logo.
