The developers of Minecraft are hard at work, and after releasing an update yesterday, they have released another beta update. Beta versions of Minecraft can only be installed on Xbox One, Android, and Windows 10 by signing up for the beta program.

The 1.17.40.21 Bedrock beta brings many new changes made to both Experimental and Non-Experimental Features. To make the gameplay smoother and as flawless as possible, many bug fixes have also been introduced.
