What is a Minecraft prerelease?

Prereleases essentially work as a beta of the full update. It lets a limited amount of players get in there and test it out for themselves. Then, you can report any bugs to the team so they can fix them in time.

If all goes well, this is a great sign of the state of the update and indicates it's likely no more than a few weeks away from its official release. Of course, if some drastic bug happens, it may get delayed.


How can I download the prerelease?

To download the prerelease, you need a copy of the Java edition of the game. From here, go into setting and set prereleases to install. It should automatically get the game ready. Start up a world and play it for yourself.

Make sure to have a back up save, sometimes prereleases can be a little volatile.
