I will preface by saying I do not know much about minecraft but I would like to get minecraft for our household.
I do not want to purchase an xbox. We have apple tv. If I download minecraft on Apple TV and purchase 2 remotes can 2 people play minecraft on this version of Minecraft purchased from the Apple tv app store? Would we be able to connect with other Minecraft users that are 1) on Apple TV version and 2) on other versions playing on their xbox 360 or xbox 1 or Minecraft on their phones? I read that an Minecraft Apple tv user could not yet connect wtih others but hopefully will be able to in the future. I dont know if that capability has yet been released. Thank you.
To find out, open the App Store and tap update. attach your iOS device to the similar Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV. Open the Apple TV distant app on your iOS machine, tap Add Apple TV, after that tap your Apple TV.
