What do you want to know

  • It’s Wednesday, Mojang Studios’ favorite day to release Minecraft previews and snapshots.
  • Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w24a is now available for testers, with two new features for Minecraft 1.19 “The Wild Update”.
  • Allays can now be duplicated if they receive Amethyst Shards, and player chat can now be reported in-game.
  • Minecraft Preview was also released today with lots of new bug fixes.

Mojang Studios is hard at work on the first major patch update for Minecraft 1.19 “The Wild Update”, and some of these upcoming changes and additional features are being tested in the current Minecraft: Java Edition snapshot.

Minecraft 1.19 “The Wild Update” was released earlier this month, but Mojang Studios isn’t slowing down on improving its legendary, globally acclaimed survival crafting game. The Wild update was a smaller content release, but it will still get plenty of post-launch love in the form of patch updates, before Mojang Studios sets its sights on what’s to come after Minecraft.

One of the best PC games can’t afford to take a break, so Mojang Studios is working on a “1.19.1” update to make The Wild Update even better. Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w24a actually includes two new features, allay can now be duplicated via amethyst shards, and players can now report chat directly from the “Chat” screen.

In case you missed it, Minecraft Preview was released today. We also had the opportunity to sit down with Mojang Studios to discuss Minecraft 1.19 “The Wild Update”, and more.

The complete changelog for Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w24a includes:



  • Allays will dance to a record playing in a jukebox
  • If the Allay receives an Amethyst Shard while dancing, it will duplicate
    • Duplicate has a 2.5 minute cooldown
