Key notes

  • Java Edition and Bedrock Edition of Minecraft support Quick Play.
  • When enabled, Quick Play will ensure you jump back into your most recent worlds with just a click.
  • The Quick Play bar, consisting of your recent worlds, will be available in Minecraft Launcher.

If you’re someone who’s into playing Minecraft to create fascinating and imaginative worlds, the recently announced Quick Play feature will make it a lot easier for you to jump back into your most recent worlds with just a click. The Quick Play feature is now available for both Java Edition and Bedrock Edition of Minecraft.

According to Minecraft’s official blog post, users will be able to skip all the screens and menus, required previously, and get straight into their most recently played worlds. In the Minecraft Launcher interface, you’ll see a Quick Play bar, which will show the worlds you recently played in. All you have to do now is click on it to return to the recent world.

However, the Quick Play bar has a limited number of slots to accommodate the worlds you played in recently. “The Quick Play bar has a total of five slots, so once they are all filled, playing a sixth world will cause the oldest world in the bar to be bumped off the list,” explained Minecraft. Luckily, though, you can pin your worlds to ensure their visibility on top of the list. This way, you’ll never lose sight of them.

You won’t have to enable the Quick Play capability, as it’s turned on by default. For those who disabled it previously and now want to re-enable it, you can navigate to Settings> Quick Play and then “click the box near the bottom of the window under the “Quick Play” heading. However, before going through these easy steps, make sure that you’re running at least version 1.20 of Minecraft: Java Edition and version 1.20.60 of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition because anything lower than that isn’t eligible.
