How to Fix “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” on Roblox

Are you getting a “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” on Roblox?

Here’s the second part of the error message, “Exit back to the app. (Error code: 286)”.

The error happens on the Roblox mobile app on Android and iOS/iPhone devices.

If your Android or iOS device does not have enough memory, the Roblox game won’t start.

In some cases, the error message happens because of a bug/glitch.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to fix the “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” error on Roblox on Android and iOS devices.

How to Fix “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” on Roblox

To fix “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” on Roblox, you need to force close all apps and delete some apps or photos.

Alternatively, you can try logging out and logging in or uninstalling and reinstalling Roblox.

The error message indicates that your device does not have enough memory.

This means that you’re running too many apps in the background.

To fix this, you need to force close the apps in the background.

To force close the apps in the background on an iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and swipe up on every app.

For an Android device, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap on “Clear all”.

Here are 4 ways to fix “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” on Roblox:

  1. Force close all apps
  2. Delete some apps or photos
  3. Log out and log in
  4. Uninstall and reinstall Roblox

1. Force close all apps

The first way is to force close the apps running in the background on your Android or iOS device.

According to Roblox, if you have too many apps running in the background, the game may not be able to start.

This is because your phone will lack the memory to do so.

Make sure to check with other people before closing or restarting an app if you’re sharing your iDevice with them.

If you’re using an iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and swipe up on each app to close them.

If you’re using an Android device, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap on “Clear all”.

Once you’ve closed every app, try starting the Roblox game again.

2. Delete some apps or photos

If your phone has no storage space, the Roblox game might not start.

To fix this, you need to free up some space on your iPhone or Android device.

To do so, you need to delete some apps or photos.

If you have an unused app or game, you can delete it.

If you have old photos or videos that you don’t need, you can delete them as well.

You can check your storage on an iPhone by navigating to Settings > General > iPhone Storage.

In your iPhone Storage, you’ll be able to see the apps that are consuming the most storage space.

You can also enable “Offload Unused Apps” to automatically offload unused apps when you’re low on storage.

3. Log out and log in

If the first two ways do not work, you can try logging out and logging in to Roblox.

To do so, open the Roblox app and tap on the three dots on the bottom navigation bar.

This will open the “More” page containing multiple options.

Scroll down the page and tap on “Log Out” to log out of your Roblox account.

Lastly, tap on “Log In” and log in to your Roblox account.

Now, try starting a Roblox game again and see if it fixes the error message.

4. Uninstall and reinstall Roblox

Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience

The final way to fix the memory error on Roblox is to uninstall and reinstall the app.

To do so, tap and hold the Roblox app, then tap on “Remove App”.

After you’ve uninstalled Roblox, open the App Store or Google Play Store and search for Roblox.

Lastly, install Roblox, open it, log in to your account, and try starting the game again.

This time, you shouldn’t get the memory error.

By uninstalling and reinstalling Roblox, the app will be updated to the latest version.

In addition, its cache (temporary files) will be cleared and the app will be opened with a clean slate.

Conclusion

Some bonus methods that you can try are connecting to a VPN and switching your network.

You can install a free VPN app and connect to a VPN before opening Roblox.

Make sure that you force close the Roblox app before you connect to the VPN.

If that doesn’t work, you can try switching from Wi-Fi to mobile data and vice-versa.

This can help to fix any connectivity issues.

If all else fails, you can try contacting Roblox support for help.

Roblox has a contact page where you can describe the issue that you’re facing and report it.

Firstly, log in to your Roblox account and navigate to the contact form here: https://www.roblox.com/Support.

Once you’re on the form, enter your contact information such as your name and email.

For the help categories, you can select “Technical Support” followed by “Specific Experience Issue”.

When you’re describing the issue, make sure to include the error message that you’ve gotten.

Lastly, submit the form and wait for 24 hours for Roblox to respond to you.

The email will contain instructions on how to fix the “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience” error.
