The beta that will allow Windows 10 and Android Minecraft players to play together is now live.
The beta is the first step in Microsoft’s Better Together Minecraft upgrade, which aims to unite Minecraft on console, Windows 10, and Android. The Xbox One beta will be rolling out in the coming days.
Not all of Better Together’s features will be available in the beta (servers aren’t live) but they’re being added as they become ready.
The Better Together upgrade for Minecraft was announced at E3 this year. The upgrade will bring the console and Windows 10/Android versions into the Bedrock Engine family, designed for cross-platform play. For the full breakdown of Minecraft’s Better Together update, check out the FAQ.
