News - Bedrock: Beta

Bedrock: Beta

Remember that only those on Xbox One / Windows 10 / and Android may participate in the Beta builds.  You will not be able to join Realms or non-beta players worlds and you will not be able to open worlds opened in the Beta in earlier/current stable builds of Bedrock.

Are you excited about copper?  I am!  The new lightning rods look interesting and I can’t wait to see the restone contraptions people come up with.  Before downloading this beta I do suggest making sure you have harvested your crops or have an ample amount of bone meal to satiate your appetite. 

New Features 


  • Added copper ore to world generation
  • Added copper ingots, which can be obtained by smelting copper ore in a furnace
  • Added copper blocks
  • Copper blocks can be crafted from copper Ingots
  • Copper, cut copper, cut copper stairs, and cut copper slabs exist in the game and can be accessed from the creative items inventory
  • Cut copper blocks can be crafted from copper blocks
  • Copper blocks, slabs, and stairs can now oxidize to various degrees
  • Copper blocks have dedicated sounds when interacted with
  • Copper blocks, stairs, and slabs that are not fully oxidized can be waxed either by using a honeycomb item on them, by using the crafting grid, or by using a dispenser loaded with honeycombs
  • Drowned drop copper ingots instead of gold ingots

Lightning Rod

  • Added lightning rods!
  • Lightning rods can be crafted using copper ingots in a crafting table
  • The lightning rod now interacts with lightning strikes:
  • All lightning strikes that happen within a radius of 64 blocks from a lightning rod will strike the lightning rod
  • Throwing a channeling trident at a lightning rod during a thunderstorm will spawn a lightning strike in the rod
  • A lightning rod struck by lightning will emit a full redstone signal for 8 game ticks

Bug Fixes


  • Keyboard inputs can now adjust slider settings when the cursor is outside the UI frame
  • Screen Reader now informs the player when the “Chat Settings” menu has been opened
  • Fixed a bug where UI screen reader did not read the permission toggles’ titles on the Permissions Screen
  • Screen Reader now reads Whisper and Announcement messages

Performance and Stability

  • Improved the smoothness of UI transition animations (MCPE-41772)
  • Improved performance for actors using TemptGoal


  • Fixed an issue that prevented player interaction after using the ‘/clone’ command on a double chest block (MCPE-109119)
  • Using the ‘/clone’ command to clone a block of the same type is no longer treated as a failed operation (MCPE-83352)
  • Fixed players taking fall damage when opening Shulker Boxes (MCPE-105490)
  • Nether Brick now gives XP from being smelted (MCPE-100030)
  • All mobs that use a melee attack have had their ability to hit targets above and below them restored
  • The target still must be within melee attack distance to be hit
  • This only affects world versions greater than or equal to 1.16.210
  • Redstone Dust is now displayed as “Redstone Dust” instead of “Redstone”

Graphical and User Interface

  • Tool and armor recipes now display the selected item background when selected in the recipe list
  • Wireframe of a structure block in the Overworld will no longer render in Nether and The End (MCPE-75231)
  • Audio sliders will now always highlight when hovered over with a mouse
  • Durability bar is now visible when holding items with decreased durability in a window (MCPE-105893)
  • Added more helpful Video Settings messages for ray tracing on supported and non-supported platforms

Structure block

  • Structure blocks no longer auto-save the data when structure name text box is deselected (MCPE-101055)
  • The scoreboard data of an entity is no longer removed if the entity is being teleported to an unloaded area of the world
  • Teleporting away from a structure animation to unload it no longer causes the game to crash

Commands, Scripting, and Add-ons

  • A warning now appears when attempting to move a locked item in and from containers

Known Issues

  • Game ticks don’t affect blocks changing states – this issue means that crops will not grow without bone meal, and grass will not spread etc. – we aim to have this resolved for the next beta update!
  • Loading a Structure block that contains a sculk sensor may cause the game to crash (MCPE-115443)
