The first feature to be introduced in 0.15.0 is Realms. Other features and items will come in further beta updates.
Do you know what Realms is? Me neither. Here is an explanation from Mojang:
What is Minecraft Realms?
Realms is the best way to play Minecraft with your family and friends. Realms worlds are online 24/7 (in theory, if everything functions properly) and can only be used by players who have been approved in that Realms. Single player is cool and all, but single gaming is not something that real gamer can sit through every since the Internet was introduced. Realms makes multi-playing a breeze.
Can I play with people on other platforms?
Yes! Minecraft Realms does support cross-platform gameplay across all Minecraft Pocket Edition platforms, which are iOS, Android, and Windows 10. But obviously right now 0.15.0 is only for Android, so iOS and Windows users will have to wait a while longer. Right now, you can access Realms (if it works correctly) by using an Xbox Live account. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, Xbox Live accounts are free. You can sign up for Xbox Live at: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/
Will Realms cost money to use?
Yes. Although right now, the Realms system is still on trial and buggy. So playing Realms is nearly impossible on the early stages. But, just like in the PC and Console versions, Realms will cost money to create and operate. The cost for Realms will be announced in further updates. But for now, enjoy Realms for free in the 0.15.0 update.
