Minecraft Beta - 1.2.20.1 (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

  • Report bugs to bugs.mojang.com and all feedback to feedback.minecraft.net

This beta features a whole ocean of new features from the upcoming Update Aquatic! These features are work in progress and more are on the way but we wanted to take the opportunity to get early feedback from players. If you find any bugs, please report them on bugs.mojang.com and post all thoughts and suggestions to feedback.minecraft.net. Thanks for playing!


Experimental Gameplay:

Some Update Aquatic features are more unstable and are currently behind the Experimental Gameplay toggle.

'Use Experimental Gameplay' can be toggled in World Settings. These features may break your world so a copy of your world will be created with "[EX]" before the world name. This feature cannot be disabled once it is enabled for a world and any progress will not be saved to the original world.
