This weeks Minecraft Bedrock beta does not come with any Caves & Cliffs features, instead we have sound sliders. Bedrock will no longer be limited to just music & sound as an option.

PLEASE READ before participating in the Minecraft Beta:

  • Joining the beta will replace your game with a work in progress version of Minecraft
  • You will not have access to Realms and will not be able to join non-beta players while you’re previewing the beta
  • Any worlds played while in the beta cannot be opened in previous versions of the game so please make copies of worlds to prevent losing them
  • Beta builds can be unstable and are not representative of final version quality
  • The beta is available only on Xbox One, Windows 10, and Android (Google Play). To join or leave the beta, see ms/JoinMCBeta for detailed instructions

New Features:

New Sound Volume Options

  • Added a variety of volume sliders for various sound categories (eg. hostile, blocks, weather etc.)
    • These will play a preview of the relevant sounds in the main settings menu, and will play the default click sound when in game

Ray Tracing

  • Enabled Ray Tracing on Windows 10 on GPUs with Raytracing Hardware Support
    • Added Upscaling Options to Video Options
    • Added Ray Tracing toggle Ray Tracing render distance slider to video-settings

  • Fixed issues where user interface controls would be improperly indexed in text-to-speech for popup modals

Graphics, Textures, and User Interface

  • Ghost items in the crafting grid now have a different colored background depending on item availability in the inventory
  • The Player Permissions menu can now be navigated using a controller regardless of the players permission level


  • Added various UI elements to communicate ray tracing capabilities in the Marketplace (Windows 10 Only)
    • Resource packs in the Marketplace are now aware of ray tracing capabilities and will display a label indicating support in the UI
    • Attempting to purchase and/or download a resource pack that requires ray tracing will notify the user of a purchasing error when that user does not have the required min-spec hardware. In this instance, we communicate the missing min-spec hardware required to the player
  • Owned packs are now refreshed correctly after restarting the game
