Minecraft Realms is the easiest way to play Minecraft together with your friends and family. Realms can only be accessed by an approved group of people. Mojang today announced that they are working on Realms support for Minecraft: Pocket Edition and the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta. Minecraft Realms will be built-on Xbox Live platform, so it will support cross-platform play between the iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows 10 editions of Minecraft.
Since Mojang needs to keep the servers running 24/7, Minecraft Realms will be a paid service and they will reveal its pricing during launch. Today, they are launching a free alpha for Android devices. If you own a copy of Minecraft: Pocket Edition on Google Play store, you can opt in here to try this service.
