Minecraft Earth mobile video game

The Minecraft Earth video game updated on both iOS and Android devices today bringing the augmented reality app up to its R9 version.

This latest update features a lot of improvements for new users such as a new tutorial, faster login, and free items to help get players building quicker.

Here’s the full release notes:


  • Get to know your way around with the new Build Mode tutorial – much easier than putting together furniture IRL!
  • Improved speed of sign-in and app resume speeds by up to 50% on all platforms because loading screens are only cute the first 5 times you see them.
  • Free stuff! Players are now gifted starting items the first time they enter Build Mode.
  • Location reporting now has comment box for specifying detailed reasons like “busy road,” “water feature,” and “super haunted, abandon hope ye who Adventure here.”
  • Layout of your profile and Buildplates has been updated – spiffy!
  • Not such a tough row to hoe – farming in Buildplates now requires tools for harvesting.
  • We added more Adventures for you to explore. ALGEBRAIC!


  • Lofi Beats to Mine and Craft To: Buildplates build and play mode added Vanilla ambient music.


  • Jolly Llama can eat ferns covered in snow because we don’t have iceberg lettuce in the game.

Multiple major bug fixes, including:

  • Game crashes
  • Sign-in issues
  • Some smelting bugs
  • Lots of other stuff that you didn’t even know needed fixin’
