This article may need cleanup to improve its quality, possibly to comply with the style guide. Discuss
Please help us clean up this page if you can. The specific instructions are:
Change to list to be consistent with update page formatting to help with searchability

This page would benefit from the addition of more images.
Please remove this notice once you've added suitable images to the article. The specific instructions are: To elaborate on some of the parity issues

This page is a list of parity issues between the Bedrock and Java Editions. A parity issue is where one feature only exists in one edition of the game and not in the other (version exclusives).

Last updated
Bedrock Edition beta 1.13.0.4
Java Edition 1.14.4

Note[edit]

Snapshot/beta features should be listed only with upcoming templates. Use the until or upcoming templates where applicable, don't remove entries unless the changes came into the final release of the corresponding edition.

Avoid adding entries along the lines of "this edition does not ...", put it in the other edition instead.

Do not put the desired outcome in the parity issue, this list is only intended to list the parity issues, not how they should be resolved.

The Java Edition names of objects are used throughout the list, just like other wiki articles.

In Bedrock Edition but not in Java Edition[edit]

  • Shared block spaces.
    • For example: addons can allow a stone button and stone pressure plate to occupy the same block space, yet not have to add a new block/block state to support that; literally several blocks in one block space.

  • When world spawn is obstructed, player's spawn is on the block as close as possible that's not obstructed
