Minecraft 1.20 update: New features

Minecraft's latest update appears to have a lot to offer. You can explore new ways to create and engage with your virtual world, new mobs like the Sniffer, and discover biomes like Cherry Biome that showcase an entirely different environment and culture. Moreover, Minecraft version 1.20 introduces several quality-of-life improvements that enhance the game's overall fun and accessibility.

The biggest attraction is definitely the Cherry Biome. It is a forest biome filled with pink cherry blossom trees. Players can collect cherry wood sets from here which are characterized by their pink hues. Cherry blossom saplings and cherry logs can also be found here.

Another fun addition to Minecraft 1.20 update is the Sniffer mob. It won a Mob vote in Minecraft Live 2022 and defeated Tuff Golem and the Rascal. It is the first ancient mob to be added to the game. These passive-friendly mobs cannot be tempted or tamed. They sniff the air and occasionally dig for seeds.

The archeology feature is also a big addition to the game. There are four new items that are coming to the game with this feature. First is the brush which is a craftable item you can use to brush things. Second is suspicious sand which can be found in Desert Temples and Desert Wells. Brushing the Suspicious Sand with a Brush will extract objects that were buried long ago.
