The Emote System is improved in the latest patch for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. Some tweaks to horse breeding are also implemented.

Improved Emote System

The beauty of Minecraft is that you can create a vast world where you and your buddies can have a good time. That said, using emotes is a fun way to interact with other people, which is why Mojang Studios made the Emote System even better.

For one, a chat string will now be displayed every time you use an emote. This lets your buddies know your reaction to something even if they’re not near you. There’s even a cool Easter Egg if you use the same emote a number of times in succession.

Additionally, the number of emotes that you can place on the Emote Wheel has been reduced from six to four. But you can now use your favorite emotes using hotkeys. Pressing the “B” button on the keyboard or the left button on the controller’s D-pad will open a quick-emote box on the bottom left-hand side of the screen.

If you want to learn how many emotes you currently have, you can head to the Dressing Room to find out. Here, you can change which hotkeys correspond to which emote as well.

Horse Breeding

The company also included some changes to horse breeding in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. For instance, breeding horses can now produce random variants. Furthermore, the baby horse now has a chance of getting better stats than its parents in speed, jump, strength, and health.
