We'd love to get your feedback about the release, from technical issues to any thoughts about our new features! Find out how to join the beta here!
Our betas normally last 4-6 weeks before we release to general availability. However, we are not able to provide an exact release date at this time.
Jayden Tondro on pocket edition, you have to hold your finger over the axolotl so that the circle is on them. If they are in water, use an empty bucket and hold your finger on the axolotl. If they are on dry land, use a water bucket and do the same. For more information-1
I would really love it if you could add toggles for the experimental features1
i cant get beta0
will you always need beta to get the goat update0
Dylan ANDERSON after the beta period is complete, we'll release to general availability and you will be able to access the GOAT update without joining the beta. We don't have a release date to share yet.0
since you have started GOAT Beta i thought i should say what i wish to add to the game
- Experimental gameplay as that is a feature in normal bedrock
- When you locate a structure instead of writing the whole coordinates you could just press a button to teleport their
- For Locating Structures it comes up with stuff like temple and that covers a wide variety of stuff so t should be more exact
- Have stuff like balloons and ice bombs in creative inventory as its really hard to get that stuff (if you want students to have to make it themselves you could ad like a switch in gameplay settings to turn it on and off)
- More unique stuff to education as it seems very similar to normal bedrock and their should be a uniqueness (maybe even a new mob that would be cool)
- join codes should get a change cos why not
- make a way to add skins / skin packs1
Yes, please do add what Marshall Adams is saying0
Marshall Adams @... Isaac Chai This thread is about feedback on the beta. Folks who help the community by testing out the beta use this thread to communicate with the MC:EDU team and one another about features in the beta. Please follow community guidelines and help everyone in the community by putting all your best suggestions for new features in the feature wishlist thread, instead.

btw when i give myself a photo with a command it crashes my game i don't know if you are already aware of this i'm just pointing it out0

Marshall Adams I'm interested to hear more about the issue you are having giving yourself a photo with a command. Could you send us all the steps you take to see the crash, or even better record a video showing how you get to the crash? These photo actions are new to Education Edition so you may have found a bug!0

Problems in English Adventures by Cambridge, when entering the library gate you won't be able to walk on the letters in order to oper the main door. So the game is totally blocked.1
Monster spawners are explorable by creepers1

Sweeping Edge Book Enchantment?0
The update is good I just think you and your team should add experimental game play and animation so you lean towards the pocket edition side. Also add like something were you can make a Minecraft story animation and emotes. Thats all from mee0

I noticed that the nether mobs do not attack you (piglins, piglin brutes, hoglin) even when provoked. (I was not wearing armor at the time). I was not wearing gold armor at the time.1
Thanks for these bug reports! When posting, if you can also post your device OS that'd be great! Thanks everyone!0
