After releasing Minecraft 1.18 Experimental Snapshot 4, Mojang has released a new beta version for the upcoming Minecraft Bedrock 1.17.30 update. Interested players can register for the beta and download it on Windows 10, Xbox One and Android devices.

Minecraft Bedrock beta features changes to cartographers, enchanting, potions and brings some vanilla parity. The new Minecraft beta also fixes bugs related to User Interface, lighting, tridents, shields, spyglasses and more.

Technical Updates


  • Animations and events defined in Behavior Packs can now run commands that require cheats without the player enabling cheats (such as setting certain rules with the /gamerule command)

User Interface

  • If the file format is invalid, content warning message will now inform the user of issues with their language file


  • Potion name string resources have been changed so there are separate "Splash" and "Lingering" string resources
  • "potion.prefix" and "potion..postfix" potion string resources are now renamed to ""
  • The game still supports old style of using "potion.prefix" and "potion.*.postfix"

Minecraft Bedrock beta also fixes a weird bug related to rideable entities, which happened only after enabling Caves & Cliffs Experimental toggle. When players try to leave the rideable entity, the game teleports them below Y level 0. It has been fixed in the latest Minecraft beta.
