The latest Minecraft: Bedrock Edition beta includes commands and RTX fixes

Spread the love

Minecraft‘s way of doing things is pretty well-known at this point. Public updates add new features and changes over time, and Minecraft tests all of these changes and bug fixes through betas and snapshots before a public release. The latest Minecraft: Bedrock Edition beta is Beta 1.17.20.21, which continues to tweak and fix the recently released 1.17 Caves and Cliffs Update Part One, first half of the massive two-part Caves and Cliffs Update.

Today’s beta follows last week’s more major 1.17.20.20 beta with another batch of bug fixes. Don’t expect any new features or exciting updates today, as this beta focuses on minor fixes and technical changes.
