Minecraft: Pocket Edition (MCPE or PE) was the former title of the mobile versions of Minecraft developed by Mojang AB. Minecraft: 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 Minecraft: 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".
