Minecraft Beta - (Xbox One/Windows 10/Android)

PLEASE READ before participating in the Minecraft Beta:
  • You will not have access to Realms and will not be able to join non-beta players while you're previewing the beta
  • Xbox One and Windows 10 players can opt in and out of the beta from the Xbox Insider Hub app. Android players can opt in and out from the Minecraft page of the Google Play Store
  • Beta builds will likely be unstable and are not representative of final version quality. Please backup your Worlds before joining the beta
  • Finished releases may not include all changes and fixes from the beta to preserve stability and may slip to a later release
  • Report bugs to bugs.mojang.com and all feedback to feedback.minecraft.net

This beta also includes changes and fixes from the 1.2.10 Beta

  • Friendly Fire (PvP) can now be toggled from World Options
  • Adjusted vertical look acceleration when using a controller
  • Added menu screen transitions, which can be toggled in Settings
  • Added Search functionality to the Marketplace to easily find specific content
  • Palleted chunks! This means we can now have (almost) infinite different types of blocks (and also no more BockIDs). It also means the game should be less likely to crash due to being out of memory
