Whether you’ve found the Dragon Egg already or not, meaning the rarest item in Minecraft, you certainly cannot deny the game’s insane popularity. Surely not everything that’s popular is also of good quality, but there’s a strong reason behind the notoriety of Minecraft: it gives players the chance to create a world where the only limit is their own imagination.

This time, we’ll speak about how to deal with the setup process for remoteconnect and crossplay. You can find the aka.ms/remoteconnect for Minecraft on its official website.
