MCPE Android Beta - 0.16 build 1

Important note: If you are participating in the 0.16 Beta, you will not have access to MCPE/Win10 Realms while you are in the Beta. To get access back to your Realm, you will need to opt-out of the Beta and revert to the 0.15.6 build.

If you find any bugs, be sure to report them here! Click here tto give us feedback because we need your thoughts on what you think about this update (especially the new UI)! As this Beta is for Android only, some of the features & fixes may not apply as they are for other versions but it will give something for those players to look for in future updates.

New Features:

  • Ocean Monuments
  • Guardians and Elder Guardians
  • Prismarine, dark prismarine & prismarine bricks
  • Prismarine shard & prismarine crystal
  • Sea lantern
  • You can now use slash commands by enabling cheats for a world in the options screen (but this will disable Xbox Live achievements for that world even if you are in survival).
