Inspired by the Minecraft launcher for Minecraft Java Edition, this launcher is meant to provide the same experience but for the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft!
This launcher is only for Minecraft Bedrock Edition on the Windows 10 Edition, sorry mobile users :(
SWITCH VERSIONS OF MINECRAFT BEDROCK:
This launcher can go all the way back to 1.0!
- Easy access to all versions of Minecraft

- Old beta versions of Minecraft Bedrock Edition

Do I need to own Minecraft: Pocket Edition to play? Yes. To download and update a compatible versions of the Game, the Google Play account you sign in with needs to own the game on the Play Store. Then you are able to download and play some previous versions of the game as well, althought not offically supported by Google Play. The launcher cannot download the game from:
The Amazon App store, althought may or may not work on arm devices. You have to extract the apk from an amazon device.
The launcher cannot download and cannot launch the game from: This would require a completly different Launcher, if that would even possible
The Apple iOS App store
The Microsoft Store, previously by redeeming a gift code for Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition
Does it work on Windows 7 / 8? No, due to the amount of work required to get this running on Windows. Play the Windows 10 Edition instead if you can. Note that you can not play Minecraft in the current version of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), as the mouse input is broken due to an issue with its graphic stack.
How does it work? The project runs the native libraries from the Android version directly on your computer. This is accomplished by fixing the incompatibilities between the libc used on Android and the one used on desktop Linux or OS X (Android - Bionic; Linux - glibc). This is a simple compatibility layer which doesn’t impact performance in any significant way; it’s similar to Wine, but much more lightweight and simple. Aditionally, all Android-specific code has been rewritten to run on Linux (AppPlatform, Store, Xbox Live, etc.).
All credit can be found within the launcher itself! Make sure to donate if you can since this project truly deserves all the support it gets!
