    If you're on Minecraft PC, you can click on the app to minimize it.  And it pauses for you.  If you're on your mobile device, just escape the app temporarily.  Xbox One?  I do not know.

    Yeah, why can’t you just click pause and pause the game. It just shows up the pause menu, it doesn’t actually pause the game even though it’s a pause button.

    Anyone know when this will supposedly be implemented. I hope they also add the option to disable the player list.

    ComoSgt - we don't provide updates/dates, sorry - please keep an eye on the beta/release changelogs. As for your other idea, please make a separate post for that. Thanks!

    Be cool if the devs were able to let us experience the full interface of the menu by suspending our game by pressing some button on the menu. But on a basic level just let us choose in the options of any single player game to "Allow Pausing"

    YES. I agree with TubsO28.

    This was supposedly put as a priority in updates yet no one has seen it for the past couple of updates. I kinda expected it to be in 1.8. Hopefully it's in 1.9 but for now it doesn't necessarily seem like it will be implemented any time soon seeing that it's been 4 months.

    Please put this in. I've lost all kinds of items due to this. And not to mention time.

    Seriously I put my Switch on the home screen so I could do some dishes, then when I went back to the game I found out I'd been killed by something and all my stuff had despawned.

    If I had known there was literally no way to pause other than to do a 30-second Save & Quit, then spend 30 seconds loading the game again, I wouldn't have bought this.

    On the Nintendo Switch for most games the Home button will Pause the running game but for Minecraft it does not . Neither, as requested here, does the “pause” (Minus) button. If the option to Pause a single-player game is added this should also Pause the game when the Switch Home button is used to exit to the main system menu.

    Really happy to see an official comment from Aubrey on this issue! OP is right, this needs to be implemented as a basic Quality of Life improvement. Having to spend minutes quitting and rejoining worlds repeatedly is annoying if you have to keep getting up to do or get something.

    This NEEDS to be implemented! A few days ago, i paused so i could go get a cup of water. But when i came back, i was dead, because creepers are a thing. And what made it worse, is that i was thousands of blocks away from home! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add this! One upvote = less deaths by creeper!

    WHY ISN'T THIS IMPLEMENTED YET? Seriously. Seems like a basic thing to me. Like we shouldn't even be having this conversation, let alone 5 updates after it came under review.

    This is unbelievable.

    Months after lying about adding the feature and we still cannot pause a video game.  

    We were easily pausing games 30+ years ago.


    What a massive regret buying this on Switch.  And the audacity of a developer commenting that they're prioritizing it almost 6 months ago.
