Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta Features New Music Disc and Tons of Changes

Minecraft is expected to gain a slew of new content later this year, but the update has yet to arrive. Mojang Studios is still developing the feature-rich version, and the Minecraft community is involved every step of the way. On Thursday, the studio released Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta to interested players, and the changelog is incredibly long.

The new beta, which is also available for Minecraft Preview, continues to progress on The Wild Update, which is expected to release sometime in 2022. The content update will include new biomes, mobs, features and more for the pleasure of the players.

Highlights of the beta/preview duo include a new music disc to go along with the music included in the latest beta, and a myriad of tweaks and refinements for various other The Wild Update features like guardian, sculk, frogs , and more. In case you missed it, Mojang Studios also recently released a new Minecraft: Bedrock Edition patch update for all players.

Minecraft is one of the best Xbox games you can play, and players are encouraged to participate in the development process and submit feedback on upcoming features and changes.
