    I have desperately been wanting bedrock on Mac. I host a realm on xbox and I love it, but i’m always wanting to have the option to play on mac. Building is easier on mac, and I always loved the feeling of playing java. I just love having the cross comparability of Bedrock, despite it not being supported by MacOS

    Based on current info, this could change after Apple launches Apple Silicon Macs tomorrow and after Microsoft has time to develop for them but, it looks like Minecraft for iOS will not be on the Mac App Store on Apple Silicon (looks like Microsoft unticked that box). Hopefully they come to their senses though!

    The fact that the game written in the language native to linux (this being C or a C variant) is not ported to linux, as well as the fact that it is not on MacOS X given that it is now SO simple to run an iOS game on Mac.  PLEASE, mojang and microsoft, give us support! I would much rather not lose java edition, but if that's what it takes, so be it. Also, given that new macs may not support java edition because of ARM based chips, it feels like a good idea.

    Yeah this would be good as long as it doesn't replace java

    at the moment it seems like newer Macs with Apple's new chip will support iOS apps (like Minecraft on iPhone) and then download it on Mac and use your keyboard and mouse.

    I think that bedrock should be on all platform. It would be better if we were all together

    With MacOS Big Sur / Apple Silicon being able to support iOS apps natively there is literally no reason for Minecraft Bedrock not to be on Mac now. Unless of course Microsoft is holding it hostage on desktop to get more people to use Win10.

    I don't think it will be that difficult to ad bedrock support to Linux and MacOS because MC edu can run on those platforms (MC edu's engine is/looks pretty similar to bedrocks engine)

    One of the main issues with cross play is that the games functions differently. Mobs have different health, and a lot of other features are only Java/bedrock. But porting Java to Mac OSX should not be too hard, since it has been done already to IOS and IPadOS. And Linux is so flexible so that the only issue is many time/developers, and the lack of stores on Linux.

    The latest M1 chips of apple silicon would make this even easier, cause you already have the iOS app available, all that would be needed is keyboard control support, full screen optimization, and maybe even Ray tracing support.

    The new M1 macs already can run the ipa file for Minecraft and it works with only two flaws: no keyboard/mouse support and no fullscreen. This is TRIVIALLY easy to fix and implement. Yet Mojang has opted out of making their Minecraft app cross-platform. They actively went against it. Mojang, I don’t know what sneaky business practices are going on, but this is not great for PR. And if you want people to spend minecoins, you’re going to want bedrock to be as available as possible.

    i think we should have both cross platform from java to bedrock and vice-versa, but i play on a mac and want to play bedrock on my pc without having to buy a windows and have two computers or have to lose my hard work i put into my java server by pemanently moving to a windows. you should also be able to play java on windows.

    I do hope this happens soon considering this post has existed for almost 3 years now, and Microsoft is constantly pushing people to use Bedrock. A Mac & Linux version would be killer, and it seems more feasible now that the Minecraft Launcher supports Microsoft accounts.

    I do not think they will replace Java, nor do I think they should. However, I think it would be an amazing decision to bring Minecraft bedrock to Macintosh / Linux.

    MINECRAFT!!! LISTEN TO ME!!!!

    We the Linux and mac player can't enjoy Minecraft with our friends because the bedrock is not allowed. 

    This is not fair, I really hope and wish if you can add it to mac and linux.

    thanks,

    Destroy java and give us Bedrock and Minecraft will be fully unified. For Mac just allow iOS Minecraft to run on Mac and for Linux just code it in. This is not for more Windows sales or you wouldn't allow PS4/5 and Switch for more Xbox sales. This isn't a coding issue as Mac and Linux are more than capable, so destroy Java and unify all platforms plz Mojang just do it for us.

    This would be quite useful, mostly for cross-play. I am ok with dropping either version at the condition, that you could run your own server, like you currently can with java.

    P.S. Currently you can cross-play from bedrock client on java server, if server has plugins like geyser+floodgate, so I'm ok with just adding cross-play ability, but I think maintaining two codebases is quite inconvenient for development and resources used for that can be utilized better.
