Players need only open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the ‘Installations’ tab. From there, click “New Installation,” select Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W07A, in the drop-down menu, and click create. Your new snapshot installation will now be a selectable option before clicking play.

However, 1.20 snapshots have a few extra steps. Once in the game, click “Create New World,” then select “Datapacks,” and enable the built-in “bundle” and “update_1_20” datapacks before clicking “Create New World” again. Finally, with the new world made, all that’s left is to select it and click play!
