How to download Minecraft Bedrock  beta version

A few days ago, Mojang released the most significant update in Minecraft history. The Minecraft 1.18 update affected all aspects of the Overworld in some way. He changed this kingdom forever by adding new caves and mountains.

In version 1.18, caves can reach depths of Y -59, while mountains can generate up to a staggering height of Y 256. To accommodate such surreal terrain, Mojang increased the world building limit by 50%. Minecraft 1.18 is packed with many game-changing features.

By adding so many features, it was natural to expect some bugs as well. Immediately after the release of the Minecraft 1.18 update, the Bedrock developers released a new beta version with various bug fixes related to world generation, mobs, etc.
