The first week of 2021 brings a fresh Minecraft Bedrock beta, today we have only a few changes including Emote wheel now supports Screen Reader on Android and iOS devices. It’s likely over the next 1/2 weeks we will start seeing more Caves & Cliffs features.

  • 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
