How to Install Minecraft Snapshots

Posted on by bisecthosting

Has a new Java Edition snapshot been released? Are you looking to play ASAP? Then let’s dive into how to install Minecraft snapshots without further delay! Be sure to stick around for some helpful tips on setting up a server!

How to Install Minecraft Snapshots

To see a new Snapshot first, Twitter is the place to be! They are generally tweeted out by developers and shared on the official Minecraft website within an hour of their release.

From there, installing the latest Minecraft Snapshot is a process done right from the Minecraft client. To quote the official Minecraft blogs released with each update, players need only “open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the ‘Installations’ tab.”

Finally, with snapshots enabled, click “New Installation,” select “Latest Snapshot” from the drop-down menu, and click create. Your new snapshot installation will now be a selectable option before clicking play. But be warned, snapshots can corrupt old worlds! Ensure backups have been taken!

Paid hosting is offered here at BisectHosting and many other places around the web. In either case, no less than 4GB of server RAM is generally recommended.
