Unfortunately multiplayer for Minecraft has typically been platform exclusive, meaning that you can’t play with someone else who is using a different device, or at least that was in the past because according to a post on Mojang’s website, it has been announced that Minecraft’s multiplayer mode will now be supported cross-platform.

This even extends to players who are playing the VR version of the game. According to Mojang, “Now you can play Pocket / Win 10 edition with your friends whatever device they are running it on, be it a shiny Android phablet, the latest flavour of iDevice or a beefy Windows 10 monster-rig. You can even join each other’s worlds while strapped into a Gear VR. All this friendliness is powered by Xbox Live – it’s free to sign up, so don’t be scared.”

In addition to support for cross-platform play, Mojang also announced add-ons that allows users to tweak and script how they want their world to behave, so for Minecraft fans, this could be the update that you’ve been waiting for.
