What is parity? This category is designed just for features that exist but work one way on one platform, and another way on a different platform. Bugs are not parity! Please read the intro post before you post!

    For lack of a downvote option I guess I'll comment here to say I disagree strongly, and instead suggest the UI on Win10 edition start looking more like Java's.

    Even though it has been the same for a really long time now, at this point, let's leave it alone. It's a classic menu system that's worked well for years. Why change it this late in the game? I think it's okay that Bedrock has its own style, and it has grown on me, but let's leave Java alone.

    The one thing I would like to see brought from Bedrock is a new background though for the main menu. I like the idea of changing it for different updates to spotlight new changes. Particularly with Update Aquatic for how beautiful the underwater looks like now.

    No and instead lets do the exact opposite

    I feel like Bedrock menus should be closer to the Java menus, just to provide consistency, because a LOT of people play Java (Or Old MCPE, or Legacy Console) as their first time playing.

    I do think that the main menu and inventory UIs on Bedrock Edition are much improved compared to the Java Edition, so slowly porting them from one platform to another would help with familiarity and feature parity greatly.

    To be more specific on the idea:

    • Main menu with the crisper logo and black-on-gray buttons
    • Iconized and tabbed settings menu with simple toggles instead of ON/OFF
    • The tabbed "Play" menu and world creation UI
    • The creative menu with expanded/recipe book/survival inventory toggle buttons and same kind of items grouped (e.g. expand white wool to see all colors of wool)
    • Close buttons on every inventory

    I disagree due to the fact I have been using Java Edition for about 5 years and I still love the main menu. It'd be sad to see it go away.

    It really should be the other way around, bedrock's UI is clunky and slow, pretty convoluted. We should make bedrock more like java rather than the other way around.

    Make crafting like Xbox Bedrock, period. Many, many people are using using controllers on pcs. Just because “that’s the way Java has always been” is a silly statement and used as an excuse to not change. Crafting on a an xbox is so much better. It’s really awkward and a slow process on Java. Please make Java’s crafting the same. For the Java purists, things can still be crafted the old way in bedrock if one chooses to do so.
