Last week our guests and subscribers had the chance to explore Minecraft PE, a pretty nice beta bringing many useful fixes. This week the MCPE developers released two more versions: Minecraft PE and Minecraft PE 1.16.40. In this article, we will talk about the first which is a beta.

Please do not forget to back up your existing worlds before installing it because it will replace your work in progress. Also mind that the worlds created in a current version can only be accessed using this or other upcoming versions, but never an earlier one. In this situation, backing up the builds is also a good idea.

And now let’s get to the features, because there is a lot to find out:
