Minecraft players are awaiting two massive updates… Caves and Cliffs Update Part Two (likely arriving soon) and The Wild Update (dropping in 2022). To tide us over until those release, Microsoft-owned Mojang is rolling out the Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta 188.8.131.52.
Currently available for beta testers, this is an update for the Bedrock Edition and is landing on Windows, Xbox, and Android.
Unfortunately, as Mojang looks to feature updates of the future, the latest Minecraft: Bedrock Edition release does not add any new features. Instead, version 184.108.40.206 focuses on squashing bugs, improvements, and making the overall experience better.
