Long-awaited Discovery Update Available for Minecraft Pocket and Windows 10 Edition

Minecraft Pocket and Windows 10 Edition is getting the long-awaited 1.1 update or the Discovery update. This update features a lot more things like Llamas, Shulker Boxes, Dyable Beds, New blocks, like glazed terracotta and concrete. New enchantments, like Frostwalking, Mending, Ingot Smelting and Add-Ons to let you remix movement properties.

You can now also get the Skyrim Mash-Up Pack, too.

One of the biggest highlights of the update is the availability of Marketplace. Marketplace is the space where Pocket and Windows 10 players can browse, buy, download and play cool community creations from within the game itself. Here’s a quick guide to Marketplace to check out and get familiar with all the goodies.
