Hours after the first Minecraft: Java Edition snapshot of 2022 was released on Thursday, Mojang Studios also gave up Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta, a minor release that packs a handful of additional fixes and improvements into the legendary creative sandbox survival game, with no major new features or changes. The beta is now available for interested players on Xbox, Windows, and Android devices.

The latest Minecraft beta still targets the Caves and Cliffs update and does not feature any interesting experimental additions like the previous Minecraft beta. Still, there are some solid improvements here to reduce crashes and improve touch input when playing on Nintendo Switch.

Minecraft is one of the greatest games ever made and maintains its title as one of the best Xbox games by continually evolving with new features and content. The Wild update is the next major content update for Minecraft and will add a ton of new features to the Overworld like frogs, The Deep Dark biome and much more. The update is expected to be released sometime in 2022.

The complete changelog for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta includes:
