Addons are an amazing new feature in 0.16.0. They let players customise how the game works in so many unique cool ways. Here, I’m going to explain how to easily install addons in the new Minecraft PE update. This tutorial can also be followed when installing texture packs.
Keep in mind, this tutorial is only for Android. We don’t yet know how to install addons for Apple devices, as it’s not yet available there.
Step 1: Download an addon
Step 2: Extract the addon
The addon you downloaded should be in a zip format. Using your file manager, extract the zip into a folder. You’ll need this later.
Step 3: Create the addon directory
Minecraft will look for the addons in a specific place. In your file manager, navigate to the /games/com.mojang/ folder. In here, you’ll need to create a folder called resource_packs. This is also the place where you’ll install texture packs from now on too.
Step 4: Copy the addon
Go back to where you extracted the addon. Simply copy the folder that contains the pack_manifest.json, and paste the folder inside the resource_packs folder. After this, it will show up in the Minecraft PE menus. Easy!
