As the Minecraft Better Together beta ends, the update is currently rolling for Windows 10, Android and Xbox One so that all players from each platforms can enjoy the game together.

A Microsoft employee confirmed the news on Twitter: “The Better Together Update is slowly rolling out over the next day or so. Keep your eyes open for it!”

The Better Together Update brings the new Bedrock Engine along with support for mouse and keyboard and integration with Microsoft’s new 3D properties Paint3D and Remix3D.com

The Better Together Update unifies the console, Windows PC and mobile versions of the game under a single Minecraft edition. This will include infinite worlds, community servers, and the Community Marketplace. It will bring cross-platform support and will allow Windows 10 PCs, consoles, and mobile Minecrafters to play together for the very first time.

The work doesn’t stop there. We’ve got loads more cool stuff to show you with this new version of Minecraft – for example, did you know you can share invite links to Realms now?! You can! (Except on Xbox One – we’ll be getting that working in the very near future.)

The Update also includes the new Bedrock Engine, which features fireworks, stained glass, customizable banners, jukebox, armor stands, music discs, ravines, recipe books and much more.

The update is free for users who purchased the game on Xbox One or digitally.
