Right clicking on a jukebox or having a hopper insert a disc into one[Bedrock Edition only] while a music disc is selected will insert the disc and play music corresponding to the type of music disc used. Right clicking on the jukebox again will stop the music and eject the disc. Music discs only play once before they must be ejected and reinserted. The sound from the jukebox travels roughly 65 blocks in all directions. It supports all available music discs in the game.
In the Bedrock Edition, jukeboxes disable adjacent hoppers when a music disc is playing inside them. Because the hoppers are reenabled when the song ends, a system of hoppers can be used to automatically eject and reinsert the disc when it's finished playing, causing it to loop.
Active jukeboxes give off a redstone signal when a redstone comparator is placed directly behind it or through an adjoining block; its strength depends on the ID of the inserted disc. The following table shows the redstone strength output for each disc.
|0||No disc inserted|
In the Bedrock Edition, they will also emit a redstone signal when any music disc is played inside.
|0||No disc inserted|
|1||Contains a disc|
The associated block entity is used to identify which record has been inserted.

- C418 has the normal player skin with a jukebox for a head, likely because it was he who made the music for Minecraft.
- The use of a diamond as part of the crafting recipe might be a reference to how Edison phonographs have diamond-tipped needles.
