- The biggest fixes in this beta are for flat works loaded with the 1.18 'Caves and Cliffs Update' Part Two experimental features.

Separated by one day from its Minecraft: Java Edition sibling, Mojang Studios is now releasing Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta 18.104.22.168 to testers on compatible platforms with a new batch of fixes. There are fixes for experimental flat worlds, mobs, items, and more to look forward to in Minecraft's latest beta.
This beta is certainly more modest than its predecessor, and doesn't include any significant new changes. Still, it continues Mojang's work to bring the second half of the Caves and Cliffs Update to Minecraft. Still, any progress is important, especially since 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update Part Two is still expected to release later this year.
