Mojang has already started working on part two of the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update. Last week, developers released an experimental snapshot for Java Edition and a bedrock beta featuring new world generation and biomes.

Mojang has released another beta version for Bedrock devices. Sadly, this time the beta is all about bug fixes instead of any new features related to terrain generation. The 1.17 update added over 100 new items and blocks to Minecraft. It is natural for beta releases to fix bugs rather than giving new content.

Minecraft Bedrock 1.17.20.23 fixes various stability and performance issues. Bugs related to items, mobs, blocks, and more are addressed in this version as well. This article guides players on how to download the latest beta release.

  • After joining the beta, Minecraft gets replaced by a version still in development.
  • Realm access is disabled. Beta players cannot play on Minecraft realms.
  • Any world loaded in the beta cannot be played on an older version.
  • Any new features in the beta are experimental and subject to change. Thus, they do not represent the final quality of the update.

As mentioned earlier, the beta version is only available for Android devices, Xbox, and Windows. Players can only sign up for the beta on these devices. Follow the given steps to sign up for the beta program and download the latest beta:
