The Minecraft beta 1.17.0.50 was released just 24 hours ago, on April 21st, 2021. This beta introduces players to new items and blocks within the Minecraft world that could potentially be added to the game in the next big update.

The new blocks and items include Amethyst bud, Amethyst clusters, Blocks of Amethyst, Block of raw metal, Budding Amethyst, Calcite, Smooth Basalt, Tinted glass, and Tuff.

Players will be able to play around with these items, provide feedback on what they think should and should not be included in the game, and report bugs or glitches with the new blocks.

This beta also allows players to craft new things with copper ingots, such as spyglass. More sounds have been added into Minecraft, such as different sounds for bonemeal, drowning and burning.

Players can download the Minecraft beta to give feedback on the game or to test out the new update before anyone else to voice their opinion on what they believe could be done to better the game.

With that in mind, here is how to download the Minecraft 1.17.0.50 beta for bedrock edition.
