What is Minecraft Education Preview?
Minecraft Education Preview is an evolution of the Minecraft Education Beta program. Preview is also a separate application that you can install side-by-side and use without impacting the version of Minecraft Education you currently have installed. By using Preview, you can test out new features before we release them to the general public.
