There is a ton of incredible content, exclusive Minecraft biomes, and a huge, active community in the world of Minecraft online. By only playing the game offline, no player can fully experience Minecraft’s magic. That means you have a serious disadvantage if you don’t already know how to join a Minecraft server. But don’t worry; we are here to teach you that. Everything you require to locate and connect to a Minecraft server is covered in our guide. As long as the server supports it, the instructions below work with both the Java and Bedrock versions of Minecraft. However, creating your own Minecraft server might be a better option if you want more control over online gameplay. So let’s get started and discover how to connect to a Minecraft server on PC, console, and mobile devices.
Minecraft servers on 19: Complete guide to accessing them on Bedrock
Fortunately, since they all run the same version, connecting to a server on a PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and mobile devices is the same.
Even though there aren’t many options, Minecraft makes it fairly simple to find servers. Those options are front and center, though.
Here’s how Bedrock players can connect to the servers that Minecraft provides access to:
- Open Minecraft.
- Click Play.
- Navigate to the Servers tab. The Play screen’s third tab should be this one.
- Select any of the servers to join.
Players can also join servers other than the few that are suggested. The Add Server option is located at the bottom of the list, and choosing it will provide players with three entries: the server name, the IP address, and the Port.
This information is usually readily available on the servers website. Gamers can use the server after entering the data.
Furthermore, if it’s a server they might want to return to, they can save it so that it will appear in the Servers tab once more later.

There is also a third-party option called Bedrock Connect. Players of Bedrock will now have more options for accessing servers as a result of this.
Here’s how to set up Minecraft on any console for players:
- Open the devices system settings.
- Navigate to the Internet/Network category.
- Depending on whether the device is a wired or an access point, select that option.
- Click on DNS Settings.
- Switch the DNS to manual from auto.
- Change Primary DNS to 220.127.116.11
- Change Secondary DNS to 18.104.22.168
- Restart the device.
- Open Minecraft.
- Players should now access a different menu after clicking any of the featured servers rather than connecting to the server as usual.
- From there, players can access almost any server.
Unfortunately, all of this is still restricted to Bedrock servers. Currently, there is no way for Java players to access Bedrock servers, and vice versa.
BedWars, SkyBlock, Towny, and all the other hugely popular servers can now be played by PlayStation 4 and other Bedrock players.

Why can’t I play servers on Minecraft PS4?
Simple answer: You can’t. Hypixel is a Java edition server, which is PC only. Bedrock is the name of the Minecraft for PS4 and Xbox version, and there is no way to play on a PC server.
