Try the new Bedrock Textures

Available on Xbox One, Windows 10 Edition, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch!

Cast your minds back now, to a distant, more innocent time. I refer, of course, to the ancient days of 'Monday', otherwise known as 'four days ago' when we told you about the newly updated textures coming to Minecraft: Java Edition that you could try.

In that article, a young Tom Stone said that those textures would ‘be available for Bedrock platforms soon too – we'll update you when they are!’ Well now, four days later I’m an old man, ravaged by time, a shadow of my former self. But on the bright side, the textures are now available for players on Bedrock platforms! Hoorah! It’s enough to make me jump for joy! Ow, my back...

Here’s how you can get the texture pack on Xbox One, Windows 10 Edition, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch!

First, load Minecraft on your chosen device, then press ‘Store’ in the main menu.

This takes you into the Minecraft Marketplace. Try not to get distracted by that ‘Robin Hood’ pack, and instead select ‘Textures’ from the menu.

Scroll through all these pretty texture packs until you find ‘Minecraft Texture Update Beta’. Select it!

Then just select ‘download’ and you’ll soon be playing Minecraft with those uber-nice updated textures!

The best part of these new textures coming to more Minecraft platforms? Well, lots more players getting to try them out, of course! But the second best part is that I once again get to share my interview with the designer of these textures, Jasper Boerstra, Lead Pixel Artist at Mojang/my best friend!

This is what Jasper will look like when he finds out I called him my BFF in this article.

Jasper’s done an amazing job updating Minecraft’s textures, and we talk about how he did it, how you can give him feedback, and which textures he will never change. You can read this groundbreaking interview by clicking here and enjoy hard-hitting exchanges from two titans of wit, such as this:

Enjoy the new textures!
