Minecraft recently received a new update that fixed tons of issues in the beta game version. While the beta game is accessible to players, you won't be able to access Realms or rejoin non-beta players during the preview.

Developers are working on other versions of the game to match them with the Java Edition, so players have a similar playstyle. Players entering the Netherworld will no longer be welcomed by 40 mobs. The devs have reduced the maximum amount of mobs to 20 at the start.
