Features and Bug Fixes


  • Allay, for now, does not teleport with its owner to Nether. This is a temporary change until we can fix an issue where Allays would sometimes get teleported inside blocks and suffocate when changing dimension (MCPE-155678)


  • Non-generated Sculk Shriekers now have a cooldown between activations, just like their generated counterparts (MCPE-153944)
  • Sculk Shriekers and Sculk Sensors do not drop XP anymore when mined with Silk Touch (MCPE-153359MCPE-153965)
  • Increased the time required to destroy Reinforced Deepslate and made it independent by the used tool, to better match Java Edition (MCPE-154097)
  • Sculk cannot spread through Fire and Soul Fire anymore

Mangrove Swamp

  • Mangrove trees now grow properly at negative Y coordinates (MCPE-154983)


  • Fixed graphical corruption issues on Android (MCPE-155509)
  • Fixed an issue that could cause severe visual glitches when using emotes more than once (MCPE-155049)


  • Actors using movement prediction will once again teleport smoothly

Stability and Performance

  • Improved game performance on certain Android devices (MCPE-142934)
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when attempting to render blocks that rely on biome data

User Interface

  • Shift-clicking items will once again combine items of same type into a stack (MCPE-153992)

Technical Updates


  • Fixed behavior of Command Blocks when cloning another Command Block onto self where the cloned Command Block would not execute its command until a Redstone signal is toggled

GameTest Framework (Experimental)

  • Dedicated server has been updated to allow servers to explicitly list which script modules they want loaded when running scripts. A default configuration file is located at /config/default/permissions.json. Without this new file, all script modules are disabled by default
