Verb

roam (third-person singular simple present roams, present participle roaming, simple past and past participle roamed)

  1. (intransitive) To wander or travel freely and with no specific destination.
    • 2013, Daniel Taylor, Jack Wilshere scores twice to ease Arsenal to victory over Marseille (in The Guardian, 26 November 2013)[1]
      Wilshere had started as a left-footed right-winger, coming in off the flank, but he and Özil both had the licence to roam. Tomas Rosicky was not tied down to one spot either and, with Ramsey breaking forward as well as Olivier Giroud's considerable presence, Marseille were overwhelmed from the moment Bacary Sagna's first touch of the night sent Wilshere running clear.
  2. (intransitive, computing, telecommunications) To use a network or service from different locations or devices.

    • 2013, Scott Isaacs, Kyle Burns, Beginning Windows Store Application Development
      At first, it seemed counterintuitive to me to roam settings between computers, but my problem at the time was that every example I was considering was a setting that only made sense for a single computer.
  4. (transitive) To range or wander over.
