What you need to know

Minecraft may have taken over the internet with their exciting Minecraft Live event for a while, but we're back to business as usual with another new beta update rolling out to insiders of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. Beta 184.108.40.206 follows the previous beta that included a ton of changes with a tiny handful of fixes. This is all leading up to one last big patch that will release to the public as part of the Nether Update before Mojang Studios begins showing us their work on the next major update for Minecraft: the Caves and Cliffs Update.
You can wait for these changes and all the prior changes made in recent betas to come to the public, or you can enroll in the Minecraft: Bedrock Edition beta yourself and be among the first to test out and give feedback on this update and future updates.
