  • Added chiseled quartz to survival mode.
  • The moon now has different phases.



  • Clouds are now slightly darker, to correspond to the cloud color in Java Edition.
  • The orbit size of the sun and moon around the player has been increased, fixing a sun and moon size problem, as well as the sun appearing in front of the clouds.
  • The sun now disappears during night and vice versa, fixing MCPE-4925.
  • After eating food, a burp can be heard.
  • Eggs can be thrown rapidly if you keep on tapping and holding the screen in both creative and survival.
