Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta

Minecraft Kathin

Mojang Studios, the developer of the sandbox game Minecraft, has a new beta release for the Nether update. Beta updates are unstable and still a work in progress. So, there is a good chance they contain bugs and may be different when they come out for the base game.

Previously, the developer introduced the Dripstone blocks. Now, they added a variant of dripstone called the Pointed Dripstones. These can only be found within the biomes of the caves, and if you want to use them, you need access to creative mode.

The new device called Sculk Sensor is part of the update, and it can detect nearby vibrations. However, the sensor can only detect the vibrations of certain actions. But expect the device to become more potent once it goes live.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed Pork Chop achievement and trophy being unlocked by raw porkchop.
  • Fixed a bug where foxes wouldn't knock off and eat sweet berries.
  • Clicking "Download Template" when missing required templates of an existing world now correctly downloads the required templates.
  • Fixed bug that allowed players to place custom spawn eggs by default in Adventure mode.


  • The '/setblock' command now supports setting the connected state for the soul_lantern block.
  • The '/setblock' command now supports setting the rotation state for the chain block.
  • 'SetBlock' and 'SetBlockAtPos' events now support custom block states.


  • Fix for certain Marketplace worlds having incorrect block data when played on Realms and multiplayer between mobile and PC.

World Generation

  • Mcstructure files saved with entities no longer crash game when loaded into the world.

Technical Changes

  • A boolean parameter called "ignore_game_mode" is added for the block event response "decrement_stack", set to false by default. Thus "decrement_stack" no longer decreases the item stack when playing in Creative by default.

Other Known Issues in this Beta:

  • A crash may occur when suspending and resuming the game on Android.
  • The patch notes screen may contain an invalid link to the Marketplace.
