Since its initial release in 2020, the game has received regular updates and downloadable content. Therefore, it is no surprise that Mojang has listened to its fans and added this highly coveted feature. Currently, the game is available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Using the new cloud save features, users can back up their data on Mojang and Microsoft’s servers.

Another great advantage of this new feature is that players can log in from any device and resume from where they last left off rather than having to start a new save.
