What is spectator mode and how to use it

Spectator mode is one of the many Minecraft game modes, and this one will surprise you with how much it will help you in the game.

First, make sure your Minecraft Bedrock is updated to at least version 1.19.50 or higher. It’s beneficial to double-check if there is a pending update to make sure everything is working correctly. Once you have an up-to-date version, you can follow these next steps:

  1. Make sure you have cheats enabled in the Minecraft world if you want to use spectator mode. You can do this by going to the settings of the game in the pause menu and just toggling on “Activate Cheats”

  3. In the chat write the following command: /gamemode spectator
  4. Now you will be in spectator mode and can explore the world in safety
