Add-ons in Minecraft realms are a relatively new feature that allows Bedrock players to add new features to their game. Add-ons are exclusive to the Bedrock edition and can be compared to mods that exist within the Java Edition of Minecraft.

Players can also use add-ons to turn their Minecraft realms world into a highly modified multiplayer environment, in a similar style to Minecraft modded servers that currently exist on the Java Edition.

This guide will teach players everything there is to know about Minecraft add-ons for realms, including how they can be installed, some of the best ones, and much more.


Installing an add-on in Minecraft Realms is easier than it seems

Installing add-ons for Minecraft Realms varies slightly between the platforms used. Rest assured, however, as it's a relatively simple process no matter what platform is used.

  • In order to install new add-ons, gamers must first download the relevant add-on file from either the Minecraft marketplace or elsewhere on the internet.
  • After downloading the add-on file, players must now open this file. If everything is correct, there should now be a popup displayed that should say the pack or world has successfully been imported.
  • Once the selected add-ons have been successfully imported into the game, it's now time to add them to the realm.
  • To do this, players must navigate to the resource pack or behavior pack tab in the realms settings. In this menu, players can control all of the active add-ons currently applied to the realm. Also in this menu, they can add a new add-on to the realm.

In order to use an add-on downloaded from the official Minecraft Marketplace, it must first be purchased. After that, players can use the "create on realms" button to import the content into the realms.
