Differences Between Snapshots and Betas (Minecraft)

Hi everyone!

So if you play Minecraft, you know that Mojang Studios always releases test snapshots/beta, depending on the Minecraft edition which you have. What is the difference between snapshots and betas? Here I will tell you.

Snapshots are like “experimental” instances of Minecraft for the Java edition only. Snapshots usually ship before a Bedrock Beta.

The bedrock betas are like snapshots but on Bedrock edition and you can enroll to get the Bedrock beta version on any device (excluding iOS :frowning:a), in order to gain access to the Bedrock Beta features and more experimental worlds toggles.
