However, depending on the platform the game is being played on, there are multiple ways to download and update the Bedrock Edition, and it's worth checking into how this is done.

Minecraft: Bedrock Edition will, in most cases, update itself after it has been downloaded. Depending on the platform they choose to play on, players have multiple alternatives for downloading the game.

On consoles, visiting the game's page on the console's online marketplace (PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, etc.) will provide a download link. Players may spend real-world money to purchase the game and download it directly to their console.

Unless users have changed their console's auto-update settings, the console will attempt to update itself both when the game is opened and when it is in standby mode once the game has been downloaded.

There are several choices for PC players that want to get the Bedrock Edition. They may download the game from Minecraft.net, which will now give them access to the game's launcher, which will allow them to open and update the Java and Bedrock Editions of the game, as well as the Dungeons spin-off. By default, the launcher will attempt to auto-update the game.

For smartphone users, all that is necessary is to seek the game by title and access the page. Pressing the download button on the game's shop page should install the game on the user's device and update it automatically unless otherwise specified.

Bedrock Edition is also available for Windows users via the Microsoft/Windows Store, in addition to the game's website. All players need to do is go to the game's jump page and pick the download option; this will immediately download the game and apply any necessary updates.

When players open Microsoft Shop, the software should immediately look for and install updates for any programs they've downloaded from the store.

On consoles, users may manually update the game by going to the game's home screen or the virtual marketplace. Each terminal should be able to manually check for updates (pressing the options button on the app on PS4 or using the Software Options menu on Switch).

As long as players are connected to the internet, using these or launching the game on an older version will usually activate the most recent game update.

The simplest method of manually updating Bedrock Edition using the Mojang Launcher is to open the launcher, then browse to and open settings (next to their username box). Players may then go to Launcher Options and select "Force Update!" to have the launcher update itself and its applications instantly if updates are available.

If your device does not automatically update the game, you may manually update it by going to the iOS or Google Play store. 

Players may pick their Google account in the top-right corner of Google Play and then "manage apps & devices." Players may then go to "manage" and identify any programs that need to be updated, including Minecraft, and choose to update the game manually.

Opening the iOS store and searching for Minecraft on an iPhone or iPad might help with the manual update for iOS users. Players may either play the game straight if it has been downloaded, or the play button will be replaced with an update button if they open the game's page after the search. Players may instantly upgrade Bedrock Edition and return to playing by tapping the update button.
