As part of the Better Together Update for Minecraft Microsoft also announced integration with Microsoft’s new 3D properties Paint3D and Remix3D.com.
The integration will be available on the PC version of the Minecraft app and would let users easily export and share 3D creations to inspire others. Unfortunately, the integration appears one way at present, meaning players will not be able to share designs for use in the game using these platforms.
The Better Together Update is designed to unify the console, mobile and Windows 10 PC versions of the game under one single Minecraft edition, which will include infinite worlds, the community Marketplace and community servers. It will introduce cross-platform support, allowing console, Windows 10 PC and mobile Minecrafters to play together for the first time and due to the new Bedrock Engine platform bring new features such as stained glass, fireworks, customizable banners, armour stands, jukebox and music discs, recipe book, ravines and more.
To take part in the beta Xbox One and Windows 10 PC beta testers will need to have downloaded the Xbox Insider app, and players on Xbox One will need to own a digital version of Minecraft. Beta testers on Android will need to have devices that support Google Play and own a copy of the game purchased through the Google Play Store.
