If you own either version of Minecraft, then the other version is free.
We’ve been working on some big changes, and we’re excited to announce that Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft for Windows (aka "Bedrock Edition") are now being sold as a single product! What does this mean for you? Well, if you’ve never bought Minecraft before, you can now get both Java and Bedrock for one low price, also called Minecraft: Java & Bedrock Edition for PC.
If you have bought Minecraft before, you’re now getting the other edition for free. Woot! Follow these steps to redeem it:
Click here to go to the Microsoft Store listing for Minecraft: Java & Bedrock for PC.
Sign-in to the Microsoft Store with your Microsoft account. Please note: If you still only have a Mojang account and have not yet migrated to a Microsoft account, you will have to migrate to a Microsoft account before you can redeem your new game. Don’t fret, migrating your account is easy and free! (Click here to learn more about account migration or migrate your account now to take advantage of this offer.)
Once you’re signed in, instead of a "Buy" button you should see a button that says "Get." Click this button – and now you own both editions!
How do I run or play either version of Minecraft?
Once you’ve completed the steps above, including logging into the Microsoft Store, you can now download the Minecraft Launcher.
To play Minecraft: Java Edition, download and install the correct launcher for your operating system. Sign into the Launcher using your Microsoft account, and you will be able to run Java Edition.
To play Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, you will need a device running Windows 10 or 11 to download and install the newest version of the Launcher, within which you can launch and play Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. Sign into the Launcher using your Microsoft account, and you will be able to run Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
Congratulations! We hope you enjoy owning both versions of Minecraft. If you have any additional questions, read on to find an answer.
Edit: Microsoft is having issues right now. Keep trying or wait till tomorrow. I got it to work but took me 10 minutes by clicking on all sorts of buttons. The main thing is to install Xbox app.
