The update also introduces the "biggest collection of new features ever" to players on PC and mobile devices. Players will notice the long awaited and much in demand stained glass, fireworks, customizable banners, armor stands, jukebox and music discs, recipe book and ravines.

For multiplayer, the update adds the ability for hosts to set player permissions and host options, along with other helpful tools, including new 3D model import features.

The update is now available for PC, Xbox One, Android and iOS. The PlayStation 4 version of the game will not be getting cross-platform multiplayer capabilities because of Sony's "no crossplay multiplayer" policy.

The Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft is expected to get the update within the next couple of weeks.
