Minecraft Bedrock beta: How to download


Downloading Bedrock beta is slightly more confusing than Java snapshots. Many Bedrock players don't have access to a launcher to manage their files and versions in one place.

To download the Bedrock beta release, players will have to register for beta testing. However, before becoming a beta tester, players should know the following:

  • While playing Bedrock beta, Minecraft gets replaced by a version still in development.
  • New features shown in betas are not final and may change in future.
  • While testing beta, access to Realms is disabled. Beta testers cannot play with their friends chem.
  • Features shown in beta versions are still in testing. They may change in the final update release.
  • Beta versions are available only for Xbox One, Android and Windows 10 devices.

After understanding all the requirements, players can decide whether they want to try beta versions or not.
