Minecraft: Pocket Edition (MCPE or PE) was the former title of the mobile versions of Minecraft developed by Mojang AB. Pocket Edition introduced the Bedrock Engine, which was later ported to Windows 10, Gear VR, Apple TV, and Fire TV. These editions – as well as the Pocket Edition, Xbox One Edition, and Nintendo Switch Edition – received a major crossplay update on September 20, 2017 that combined the Bedrock platforms under one title: "Minecraft".
