Realms Clubs come to Minecraft — sharing that giant pixel block Cthulhu is now easier than ever
Minecraft Realms are servers run by Microsoft where players can invite their friends for private games.
It's a great place to play together if you want to work on a particular project or collaborate to a higher degree. Today, the Minecraft team revealed Realms Clubs, online meeting places created specifically for members of your Realms to share creations and socialize. In your Realms Club, you can share posts with each other and like videos, photos and comments.
Realms Clubs will begin rolling out today for Minecraft on Xbox One, mobile, and Windows 10. They're are automatically created for your Realm, and anyone you invite to your Realm is also added to the Club. You can access your Realms Clubs from the Xbox App on PC, mobile, or console, or directly from your Realms menu in Minecraft.

To take a screenshot, just pause the game and hit the button with the Camera icon next to the "Feed" button. Pressing this button will take a screenshot of the current view — excluding the menu — and add it to your list of saved screenshots or directly to your Realms Clubs feed. This is a great way to share your structures with everyone in the Club.
For those worried about what people post, players can report comments and posts in your Club to the club administrator, who can then delete posts and comments and remove players from the Club if necessary. It's a curated experience which should make parents feel comfortable about their children playing on them. For example, children need a parent to adjust their permissions in order to use Realms and Realms Clubs. They can't see any content posted in Clubs without additional parental permissions.
Realms Clubs sounds like great ways to collaborate with one another so it's important gamers only invite people they know. It's the administrator's responsibility to make sure their Club operates smoothly and is a positive experience for everyone.
