Step-by-step guide for Windows, Xbox One and Android

The months leading up to a major update in Minecraft are always an exciting time for players because Mojang wants to make some new content available by bit. In this way, they ensure that all the features in the update are polished to a great extent and are adequate for the players to look forward to.

Beta versions of Minecraft allow gamers to play some of the new features planned for the update and provide live feedback to the devs. However, players should keep some important things in mind while downloading the beta version of Minecraft.

  • Joining the beta will transform the game into an advanced version of Minecraft.
  • Players will not have access to Reals and will not be able to join non-beta players while previewing the beta.
  • Any worlds played while in beta will not be opened in earlier versions of the game, so make duplicates of worlds to avoid losing them.
  • Beta builds are unstable and are not representative of the final version quality.
