Minecraft Beta’s latest update is here, but it will be retiring soon on Windows. If you want to continue testing out experimental builds, download the Minecraft Preview version as that will be the main client for testing. Beta Update of Minecraft makes some changes to Allay and Sculks. These changes are just experimental, and might not make their way into the live server.

Allay Changes

Allay is a mob that helps players transport items, and it had some issues where it would get teleported inside blocks and die when players go into the Nether. To temporarily fix this issue, the developers made sure that Allays can’t teleport with the player to the Nether. This means players will have to carry items gathered from the Nether using their own inventory and other means of storage.

Sculks Changes

Sculk Shrieker and Sensors no longer drop XP when mined with Silk Touch, which is an enhancement that causes blocks to drop instead of the raw material. This is considered broken because players can put down the entire block and mine it again for the XP and block.

Minecraft Beta & Preview Update

  • Non-generated Sculk Shriekers now have a cooldown between activations, just like their generated counterparts
  • Sculk Shriekers and Sculk Sensors do not drop XP anymore when mined with Silk Touch
  • Increased the time required to destroy Reinforced Deepslate and made it independent by the used tool, to better match Java Edition
  • Sculk cannot spread through Fire and Soul Fire anymore
Mangrove Swamp
  • Mangrove trees now grow properly at negative Y coordinates
  • Fixed graphical corruption issues on Android
  • Fixed an issue that could cause severe visual glitches when using emotes more than once
  • Actors using movement prediction will once again teleport smoothly
