Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.16.0 Boss Update changelog

Add-Ons allow anyone to change the way a Minecraft world works. For example, change chickens’ behavior so you can ride them. You can even share them with friends and family over Realms.

You can also upload and download your worlds to Minecraft Realms. You can take your offline worlds and start sharing them with friends, download a Realm for those times you don’t have an internet connection, or use Realms to make regular backups of your offline worlds.

Furthermore, this update brings Ocean Monuments and their underwater inhabitants – Guardians and Elder Guardians – along with all kinds of water-themed goodness including sea lanterns, prismarine, and more.

There are also some tweaks and new features that you can check out on Mojang’s website. You now have Slash commands (with a handy auto complete feature). They enable cheats for a world in the options screen for access, but note that Xbox Live achievements will be disabled when you’re using them.
