Minecraft Pocket Edition has been out for iPhone for quite some time, but Android devices have never seen Mojang’s software on it yet. Now, Mojang is looking for beta testers for the Android app, and below they’ve outlined how to get into the beta!

“Today, we’re launching a beta for Minecraft Pocket Edition that’s open to anyone who’s bought the game through Google Play on an Android device. You’ll be able to help with testing and give feedback about new features in future versions of Pocket Edition.

To join the beta program, apply to the Minecraft PE Test Group and follow the instructions listed there. Your app will still be updated with the final version of Pocket Edition whether you’re in the beta or not, so don’t worry if you want to quit the beta later down the line.

While playing a beta release, it will not be compatible with current version of Pocket Edition. If you go from a beta version back to a final version, the world may be corrupted. Beta version worlds will always work with the final release.

We’re hoping to get the 0.8.0 version out before Christmas.”

Hopefully this comes as great news to all you Minecrafters who have been waiting to play on your Android device. We’re all eager to see what Mojang delivers!
