Moreover, there’s now a bookshelf that can actually hold books. It can hold up to 6 books and its texture will change depending on the books put into it. For the hanging signs, it is crafted with regular signs and chains.

The Mob Vote
Through the 3.5 million votes that were submitted, a winner has finally emerged in the Minecraft Live 2022 Mob Vote. Sniffer, the extinct mob, beat out the Tuff Golem and the Rascal.

Explore underwater ruins to find its eggs hidden away in chests, bring them up to the surface, and hatch your very own baby sniffer. When the sniffer grows up, it will help you find ancient seeds that you can grow into different decorative plants.

Mojang will release snapshots and betas over the year to slowly unravel the whole update. Compared to previous years, the studio decided to not give it a theme or title and just stick to the 1.20 update. As of the moment, details are scarce so stay tuned for more!
