The latest Beta version of Minecraft Bedrock Edition has finally arrived. The weekly updates are one aspect that many look forward to. Each one theoretically brings players closer to the highly anticipated official release of the 1.19 Wild Update. The update may be getting very close as this Beta focused mainly on bug fixes instead of new additions.

The Allay, Mangrove trees and Sculk-based blocks received the bulk of the changes this week. Those playing on the Beta versions will want to update to avoid any gameplay issues.

With that in mind, here's how to download the latest Beta and get involved with the Preview, which is the future tactic for implementing updates.

For Xbox users, the steps are very similar, though on a different platform. The Xbox Insider app, also found on the Microsoft Store app, will have the Beta available for download.

Android users can visit the Minecraft page on the Google Play Store to get information on and download the latest Beta version: It should be noted that Mojang has issued a warning to Beta users:

"The Minecraft Beta on Windows will be retiring soon! To continue testing out new pre-release features, you will need to install the Minecraft Preview version."

Fortunately, getting involved with the Preview, version, is pretty simple, too. Eventually, everyone will have to do this.
