    Minecraft Bedrock Edition was just announced for the Playstation 4. At this point, I don't think there's any reason the Bedrock engine shouldn't be ported to Mac and Linux computers. If Microsoft can collaborate with their biggest rival in the console space, they can easily port their game to Mac and Linux.

    Soooo, PS4 can crossplay, but we can't on MacOS?! 

    C'mon...

    I support the idea of having Bedrock Edition on Mac, I  have tons of friends who play on Switch, iPhone, Xbox, etc. and am not able to play with them, and there's just some sort of beauty in Bedrock Edition that no matter what happens, Java  Edition never has and never will be able to catch.

    It’s so frustrating that I have to pay $100 plus dollars for a copy of Windows 10 just to run Minecraft Bedrock Edition on my Mac. It feels as if Mac users have been left behind.

    Port Minecraft to Khronos's Vulkan Standard and you can have compatibility everywhere with few shims.

    Can't add cross-platform Java-Bedrock play as Java and Bedrock have totally different frameworks. It could be possible but it would take way to much time.

    I was looking forward to buying Minecraft to play with my friends who have PS4 and X-Box. But I have a Mac. So I was very discouraged when I realized there is no crossplay for people on a Mac with people on console. Please make a bedrock edition for people on a Mac so we could crossplay. Also, if you guys do make a Minecraft bedrock edition for Mac, can you guys make it free to download for the people who already have the java edition. This is very frustrating because now I don't know if I want to even get Minecraft or not. Please make this a reality.

    People on YouTube have already figured out how to use the google play edition on Linux for cross platform play. The community can botch together a fix faster than you (Microsoft) I know you have heard and seen that we want Mac and Linux support - Make it happen. It's ridiculous that the game is on every platform EXCEPT the two that compete with you in the PC department. Cut the s**t Microsoft.

    Why isn't this available on macOS  yet?

    Near as I can tell this is the second most popular post on here aside from the Oculus thing, and it's not even under review. I'm trying to figure out what server to self-host right now and it's ridiculous that I can't support both people playing on Mac or people playing on iOS/Android. Either compatibility of Bedrock and Java protocols or Bedrock availability on Mac would resolve this. As a C++ developer, I'm pretty sure Bedrock on Mac should be the solution.

    I prefer to play Minecraft with a mouse and keyboard. I recently switched over to mac, and would love to continue playing with my niece and nephew who play on bedrock edition. It’s such a hassle to dig up my old barely working laptop to play. Please add bedrock to Mac

    I have minecraft java on my mac and bedrock on my phone tablet and more. I really want bedrock to be for mac because iI'm not gonna install windows 10 on my mac again. Also I have had minecraft so where I install bedrock off the windows store for free using the code I got. I really hope you will consider getting to work on mac. Or if its already for mac please give me the download link

    Ios apps can easily be ported now, so this shouldn't be a difficult task.

    I'm thoroughly disappointed to have gone through the trouble of setting up a server, with the hopes of having cross-play, only to find out the macOS version is the only one which can't. 

    I'm even more disappointed to see this post is from May of 2018, and a year and a half later N O T H I N G has changed.

    Lol @ Microsoft devs.

    I'm totally baffled that there is still no Bedrock edition on macOS... Shouldn't it be easy to achieve as it already works with iOS? Now that there is Catalyst the iOS App could be released for macOS and we would be very happy :-)
