A few days ago, Mojang released the most significant update in Minecraft's history. Minecraft 1.18 update impacted every aspect of the Overworld in some way. It changed this realm forever by adding new caves and mountains.

In version 1.18, caves can reach depths of Y -59, while mountains can generate up to an astounding height of Y 256. To accommodate such surreal terrains, Mojang increased the world build limit by 50%. Minecraft 1.18 is filled with many game-changing features.

While adding so many features, it was natural to expect some bugs as well. Right after Minecraft 1.18 update was released, Bedrock developers pushed a new beta version featuring various bug fixes related to world generation, mobs, etc.

Minecraft Bedrock beta is available for download


Minecraft 1.18 update was released on November 30, 2021. Bedrock developers are already working on a bug-fix patch. Minecraft Bedrock beta mainly features bug fixes related to biome generation.

To download the Minecraft beta, players will have to become beta testers first. Any player who has purchased Minecraft Bedrock Edition can apply for beta testing. But before doing that, players should know the following:

  • Joining beta testing replaces Minecraft with a work in progress version.
  • Access to Realms is disabled while playtesting beta versions. It means players cannot play with non-beta players.
  • Worlds played or created in beta versions cannot be loaded in older versions.
  • Beta builds can be unstable as they are still in development. Beta features do not represent the final quality of an update.

Bedrock betas are only available for Windows 10, Xbox One, and Android devices. Bedrock players on other devices cannot try beta versions.
