Minecraft: Pocket Edition picks up cross-platform play with Windows 10 version

Mojang has released a pretty big update for Minecraft: Pocket Edition that brings some new features to the game, including cross-platform multiplayer with the Windows 10 Beta Edition and more. According to Mojang, here's what's new in Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Android:

Our latest free update includes the Nether and all its inhabitants, enhanced weather effects, cross platform play with Windows 10 Beta Edition, revamped controls, and lots more.

While that "lots more" may seem a little vague, its likely that this update brings the Android version up to parity with a similar update released to the Windows Phone version earlier this week. Alongside cross-platform play with the Windows 10 version and revamped controls, that update also added a ton of new creatures, along with anvils, brewing, and enchantments.
