    This would be awesome! Maybe there could be version control with this, too. If I play a little bit on my PC, then switch to my phone, and then back to PC, my PC should only need to download the changes made from my phone. If diffs are used, maybe the developers could take advantage of this and basically create version control for Minecraft worlds!

    Allowing syncing world's via OneDrive. If the concern is taking away business from Realms, then Microsoft could institute some limitations to world's synced this way in the form of up-time limitations, or numbers of players. Cross-platform play really doesn't make that much of a difference without cross-platform world availability.

    I bought Bedrock edition just for this purpose and I couldn't believe this is not a feature.

    Every Xbox Live user has a Microsoft account, and each Microsoft account has a OneDrive account. Couldn't they just create an option to backup and sync world's to an Xbox Live user's OneDrive account? Well-developed Minecraft worlds are usually between 10-20 megabytes, which can be larger if it has resource packs. I imagine you could have at least 300 average-sized worlds backed up, and almost definitely more. You could even do this with stuff like resource/behavior packs. Your only limit would be the file size of your OneDrive account.

    Being able to save worlds across a cloud of sorts for your Minecraft account would be neat. Maybe even apply it to texture packs and skins so what you have on PC can be accessed from a console.

    I would love ability to transfer worlds between devices (i.e. Transfer a world from Xbox One to PC) without having to spend money on realms.

    Being able to play on XBox or Switch, then switch device and continue playing on iOS or Win10 in the world you left behind on the other device would be awesome and would contribute to a true seamless experience. Making that a reality would show true customer obsession Microsoft! +1000

    Yes, yes and yes. this and the ability to sync my custom skin across all my devices is what bedrock really needs to become a truly integrated experience. (I realize, of course, that synced custom skins is a bit of a pipe dream given Microsoft's current attitude to those of us that use custom skins...)

    This is the only thing keeping me from liking either bedrock or java better. They add in world sync and vive  support to it and bedrock will be superior IMO.

    Yes i think this is a wonderful idea and hope to see it soon. I have an awesome world on my xbox but have trouble playing it because i dont have the time and im on the go. If i wanted to play it on my phone i would have to constantly copy it between the devices or pay for a realm. I have alot of projects on this world and would like to work on them. I thought this would be possible in the better together update and was very dissapointed that you had to use a realm. Sure you get a month free but this is minecraft, a kids (ish) game and we dont have huge wallets to pay for this every month. I wouldnt want people in my world if im not so there is no point in wasting money on a realm that supports ten people and not having anyone on.

    Tbh i kinda stopped playing because of all the microtransactions now but i am bored now and want to play this world while in the car on long drives. It could save the data localy then when we connect to a better network upload it then delete the old version. I wouldnt mind paying like a one time fee for a bit of cloud storage as long as it isnt much.

    I also want to show my friends at school my world, my friends love minecraft and i want to show them i can really play unlike my crappy conpletely mobile world that i have nothing done on, because it doesnt feel like my good world and its not motivating me to do stuff on it.

    Please mojang if you see this thread/comment take this into serious consideration. There are way more people that want this. All 10 of my friends i play with on minecraft want this feature.

    I agree that this feature is more than overdue. This has become even more relevant now that PS4 bedrock edition has been released without support for Realms.

    Something for maybe the developers to note is that a world sync shouldn’t have to mean all the worlds. For me, I would be very happy with the ability to be able to just copy one specific world over to another console. But syncing would be even more convenient.

    Considering the fact that this would require cloud storage for the worlds, they could at least allow us to pick one worlds to sync. I pay for realms, but it's obnoxious because of latency. Any mob combat is atrocious compared to local play, the blocks load slowly on placing and destroying, and having to connect to an actual server to play makes offline play impossible. I know you can download and reupload the worlds, but that is a tedious and silly process when Halo has forge with full backups for tons and tons of stuff.
    They could even make it so the world takes up one cloud storage or something similar to a size budget. This would make the game so much better and would be great. I've been playing this game for a decade and have bought it 7 times, if you can ruin it with mobs that kill you for not sleeping and ""raids"", you can at least give us world backups.

    This would be a really nice feature to have.
    Especially now that they have removed the cheap entry level Realms subscription when Realms+ was launched, there is imho no acceptable way to transfer your worlds between devices.

    At least on Android you can accomplish that yourself by syncing your worlds manually (or using 3rd party apps) via cloud storage (I assume the same is possible on PC as well. No Idea about iOS and I guess we are out of luck on other platforms like xbox, switch, ...)

    However one remaining challenge I see is the different UIs on different devices, which render chests with varying number of columns -> sorting your inventory on one devices will cause a mess on other devices when there are more/less columns in your chests.... *sigh*

    Microsoft definitely has the resources to do this, I think that automatic sync should be a feature of realms plus, but they should integrate a way to transfer worlds between platforms that is available to everyone.

    You should make it where you can get the worlds from your Ipad mini and transfer them to your Xbox One. My Ipad mini is old I'd say about 7 years old and it can't load the world it just kicks me out. Me and my friend have worked on that world for about 2 to 3 years and don't wanna lose it.

    Please add this. I really want sometimes to just grind a world while, for example, in the car or at some kind of boring convention. Unfortunately I have to have the world already open at home and join in which is risky as far as crashes and overheating.

    I think that it may be easier for them to do a world transfer like Xbox 360 worlds to Xbox One, or PS3 to PS4. It isn't asking as much, and it didn't seem like it was too difficult. I know that it was partly done by 4J Studios, but if they can do it, Microsoft probably can too.

    If we really could have a cloud synchronizing service like this, it would make it more "better together" as it would connect the consoles and devices even more than before.
