It was released July 10th.

  • How can I get Beta on iOS?

You can't, Beta is only for Android

  • Does beta work on Kindle?


  • Is (Insert here) Going to be in the update?

If it's not on the page, no.

  • Can I edit the page?

Ask an admin. Don't just comment here.


No, we are not Mojang, we are a fan site, therefore we do not dictate what goes in the game.

  • Are you sure we are getting Andesite?

If it's on the page, it's probably guaranteed, it will have a citation)

  • What Biomes are we getting Exactly?

The ones on the page at least.

  • Why Mojang! I wanted Ravines!

We can't change what was in the update, nor what will be added when. There is next to nothing the community can do on what will be added.

  • Can I be an Admin?!?!?!?

This isn't a question for here, go ask Dblcut3

  • Θέλω την ενημέρωση τόσο άσχημα!

We don't speak Greek, or Italian, or any other languages for this matter. This is an English wiki, please speak English or use a translator.

  • Do you know about this glitch in the 0.9.0 beta?

You are a BETA TESTER! It's your job to tell Mojang about the Glitches you find, go Here to tell them:

  • I thought Mojang fixed all the bugs in 0.9.0!

Again, it's your job to test it, not all the bugs are fixed.

  • How do I fix my sink?

This is a page for Update 0.9.0, please only ask questions about update 0.9.0. We don't specifically want to help you fix you sink or repair your brakes or find out how to get cookie clickers on your iPad, so please only ask about Update 0.9.0.

  • There's a question here that wasn't answered!

Then you can still ask, FAQ doesn't forbid you from asking, just make sure to check here first.
