Supports All Devices

Supports all devices that can play Minecraft — from laptops to desktops, phones, tablets, and consoles.

Minecraft has two editions, known as Bedrock Edition and Java Edition. When you run a server, you have to pick an edition, and this determines which types of devices can play together. See the table on the right for details. Clicking on your device takes you to the store to install the appropriate Minecraft app for your device (note: we receive no compensation from these links)

Download Your Worlds

Do you want to take the world you've been playing on offline, for individual play or construction? Simply hit the world download button on the dashboard, and you're good to go. Installing the download so you can play it locally in single player mode is device specific, this wiki entry is a good starting point if you need help with that.
