Minecraft: Bedrock Edition has received a new update along with accompanying patch notes today with the 1.19.20 update for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, and the Xbox. The latest addition brings new changes, quality of life improvements, and fixes with the Minecraft: Bedrock Edition update 1.19.20, including additional stability fixes in the patch notes.
Previously, a big Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, 1.19.1 (Wild) update, adding new features like the mangrove swamp biome to the game and various tweaks. But unfortunately, it created some unforeseen issues for some. The Minecraft: Bedrock Edition 1.19.20 update looks to resolve issues that players had been experiencing after the 1.19.1 (Wild) update. Let’s hope the Minecraft: Bedrock Edition 1.19.20 update manages to fix many of these issues for players. Check out the full Minecraft: Bedrock Edition patch notes for 1.19.20 below.
