MINECRAFT Java Edition Update 1.16.5 Finally Introduces The Ability To Mute Other Players In Multiplayer
Mojang Studios have finally added a feature to Minecraft Java edition that really should have been an option all along: the ability to mute other players. Hit the jump…
With the most recent update to the Java edition of Minecraft (that’s Minecraft on PC and not Bedrock edition); Mojang Studios has finally added a way for players to mute specific players in multiplayer.
The latest pre-release update to Minecraft Java introduced a feature called the “Social Interactions Screen.” To bring up this menu, you simply have to press the “P” button on your keyboard — though it can be remapped in the options menu. The menu displays a list of every player in the realm. You can then select a certain player whose messages you would prefer not see.
1.16.5 is an upcoming minor update to Java Edition with no set release date, which will add the social interactions screen and fix two bugs
Of course, the server’s version 1.16.4 is not compatible with the old 1.16.x versions, so you need to download the new version of the server file to create it. Moreover, the Minecraft 1.16.4 client is also totally incompatible with the older versions. You should take this information into account to prevent undesirable errors when playing.
– A new feature and the corresponding Social Interactions screen have been added to the game. Now you will be able to manage messages from other players and allow or prohibit displaying their messages in the server’s general chat.
– Netherite leggings (worn) has received a new texture!
– The “Server out of date!” and “Client out of date!” messages when logging in to the server under an incompatible version were replaced with the “Incompatible version!” message.
– The 3D textures of netherite leggings didn’t display correctly.
– Reduced the number of crashes.
