New Features:

  • PlayStation®4
    • Welcome PlayStation®4 players to the Bedrock version of Minecraft! All Bedrock platforms can now cross-play with PS4™ consoles. More information can be found in the Minecraft for PlayStation®4 FAQ.
  • Bees!
    • Bees are cute, fuzzy, neutral mobs
    • Don’t hurt them, they don’t want to hurt you
    • Bees love pretty flowers and spend their lives gathering pollen from them
    • After gathering pollen, bees fly back to their nest
    • If a bee can’t find pollen, it will return home
    • If a bee doesn’t have a home nest, it will wander around until it finds one it can use
    • Bees don’t like the rain and they sleep at night. They will return to their nest in these cases
  • Bee Nests and Beehives
    • Bee Nests generate in Flower Forests, Plains, and Sunflower Plains biomes
    • When a bee visits a nest and completes its journey undisturbed, the level of honey increases
    • Using shears on a full hive or nest will harvest Honeycomb and using a glass bottle will give a Honey Bottle
    • Campfire smoke calms bees – Place one underneath the nest or hive to keep them in chill mode
    • Redstone friendly! Dispensers can shear honeycombs from hives and nests
  • Honey Block
    • Greatly reduces movement speed and jump height, but also reduces fall damage
    • You can “slide” down a wall of honey blocks to slow your fall (Parkour FTW!)
    • When a honey block is piston-moved, adjacent blocks also move
    • When a honey block is piston-moved, entities on top are moved along with it
  • Honeycomb Block
    • A decorative block that can be crafted with Honeycomb

  • Leads can now be used on Polar Bears, Parrots, Ocelots, and Dolphins (MCPE-46866)
  • Dispensers can now fill bottles with water and honey
  • Tweaked the amount of XP dropped by animals to match Java Edition
