] is going fully cross-platform in an update called Better Together. All of the Minecraft versions will be unified (so forget the Minecraft: Pocket Edition name, all will be called Minecraft), which means you'll be able to play with every other Minecraft player regardless of platform choice, and that's pretty huge. Keep in mind, though, that the Java version won't be included in this move. You'll be able to have Realms servers that can host players not just from your tablet or phone but also friends from XBOX and PC. And Mojang mentioned that it will be much more able to join community servers now.

Regardless of the technicalities of this endeavor, this is a huge move by Microsoft and one that will continue to move the various Minecraft versions towards feature parity. Expect to hear more details soon. I'm very excited by this move because uniting the Minecraft world into one huge server of sorts is a fantastic idea. What do you all think?
