Java Edition

Planned release date


Development versions

1.16.4 is an upcoming minor update to Java Edition with no set released date,[1] which will add the social interactions screen and fix two bugs.



  • Added Social interactions screen.
    • Gives players the ability to disable chatting with certain players, thus hiding any messages receiving from them.
    • Opens with a configurable key binding, by default P.
    • Whether a player is hidden resets when re-joining a server.



Netherite Leggings
  • Changed the texture of the worn netherite leggings model.


  • Added "joinedFirstServer" option to options.txt.
  • When the server and client version are incompatible, a message reading "Incompatible version!" will be displayed, instead of "Client out of date!" or "Server out of date!"
  • New network protocol scheme, with a high bit (bit 30) set for snapshots. The protocol version will increase by 1 for each snapshot, but full releases may keep the same protocol version as the previous full release in cases where the network protocols are compatible.
  • More information is now added to the crash log in cases where poor performance causes the server to crash.


3 issues fixed
From 1.16
  • MC-192434 – The 3D model of worn netherite leggings renders incorrectly.
From 1.16.2
  • MC-199487 – World generation deadlock causes crash.
From 1.16.3
  • MC-201885 – Divide by zero error in the ender dragon entity class can cause a server crash and infinite velocity.
