Downloading Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 22w45a

Before we begin, please note that the ability to download snapshot preview builds of Minecraft is only available on the Java edition of the game. Unfortunately, you cannot check out the snapshot builds on the Bedrock edition. This also means you can only do this on PCs.

To get started, open the Minecraft Launcher. Select the Minecraft: Java Edition button on the left sidebar, then click on the Installations button on the top bar. You should now see a list of installations you might have for the Java Edition.

If you haven’t messed with this stuff before, you’ll probably only see one installation, and it should be the latest stable release. Go ahead and click on the button that says New installation.

You’ll be prompted to install a new version of Minecraft. First, you’ll want to name it, and it can be anything, like the number of the snapshot version.

Next, there’s a dropdown menu that lets you select the version you want, so go ahead and pick Latest snapshot (22w45a). You can leave the Game Directory and Resolution set to their default values.

And that’s it! You’re now playing the latest snapshot version of Minecraft, so enjoy all the latest features. That concludes our guide on how to download Minecraft 1.20 snapshot 22w45a. If you have any other questions, ask away in the comments below!
