Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta 1.19.0.28 features a new music disc and tons of changes

Minecraft is slated to gain a plethora of new content later this year, but the update hasn’t arrived yet. Mojang Studios is still developing the feature-packed release, and the Minecraft community is involved every step of the way. On Thursday, the studio released Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta 1.19.0.28 to interested players, and the changelog is impressively long.

The new beta, which is also available for Minecraft Preview, continues progress on The Wild Update, which is expected to release at some point in 2022. The content update will include new biomes, mobs, features, and much more for players to enjoy.

Highlights of the beta / Preview duo include a new music disc to accompany the music included in the last beta, and a myriad of tweaks and refinements for various other The Wild Update features like the Warden, sculk, frogs, and more. In case you missed it, Mojang Studios also recently released a new Minecraft: Bedrock Edition patch update to all players.

Minecraft is one of the best Xbox games you can play, and players are encouraged to participate in the development process and submit their feedback for upcoming features and changes.
