Minecraft Beta and Preview Update Fixes Spectator Mode Issues and Game Crashes

Minecraft Minecraft.net

Minecraft recently received a new update for its Beta and Preview versions. It made some changes to the experimental Spectator Mode and also brought general bug fixes.

Spectator Mode

The developers are still polishing the Spectator Mode before it arrives in the live build. This update fixed an issue in which players were unable to place blocks where a spectator was hovering. That's quite annoying for someone trying to build something and can't figure out the problem.

Teleporting Fix

Some players faced issues where the game would crash when they return to the Overworld, which is the main world they spawn in from the Nether or The End. This issue is fixed and players can now safely teleport.
