Update: While the app has been updated and will install on all devices now (if they meet performance and memory requirements), please test for functionality using the demo version, here.

Here it is, Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Android - and it's no longer monopolized by Sony's XPERIA Play, as had been the case for the past several months.



This should work on your Android phone or tablet (Honeycomb included!), so get going! We haven't confirmed that it works on all Android devices, but this is the release we previously said would be coming to bring support to virtually every major Android phone. Presumably, any phone or tablet (with a sufficiently powerful processor) running Android 2.1 or higher can run it.

  • Someone

    Right all you that are wanting minecraft on galaxy ace stop commenting if you weren`t dumb you`d know that the galaxy ace processor is just not good enough to support the game.I used to have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and its sh*t. It lags, it doesnt have any outstanding features and its just a bad phone. Didn`t you think that straight away notch tried to make this work for as many phones as he could to get more and more money so if it doesnt work on your phone dont expect it to work !

  • Bogdan

    Like others, i have samsung galaxy ace, please solve this problem, WE WANT MINECRAFT!!!

    Please fix the start game to load file and play the gameplay for HTC EVO SHIFT 4g . Sprint. Please!

  • KM

    Fix it, make galaxy ace able to play it. On your wiki, you said it was no lag on galaxy ace.
    Also, i dont see why you make it less competable with android phones. You can make so much more business by making it more for android as in truth, there are way more android phones sold than IOS phones.

    • Garlikowsky

      It was Ace 2 or Ace Plus.

  • Jacx

    I have Galaxy Ace with faster CPU 832 MhZ and still doesn't work PLEASE FIX IT TO WORK ON THE OTHER DEVICES WITH WORSE CPU!!!
