It's worth starting with changes in the interface. There is a new button for accessing the emotions window
In the world (both in the Overworld and in the Nether), destroyed portals now appear, which can be completed to get into the Nether! Various blocks appear at the destroyed portals — obsidian, weeping obsidian, magma blocks, gold blocks, various stones and a chest that contains various random resources!
Basalt deltas are a new biome in the Nether, shrouded in white ash particles. Lava cubes now appear in this biome, and here you can also find blackstone in large quantities.
The valley of the sand of souls consists of blocks of sand of souls and blue flame. Skeletons and ghasts appear in this biome.
The distorted forest consists of new earth blocks and trees. There are also new mushrooms, vines and Wanderers of the Region!
The Crimson Forest, like the Distorted Forest, consists of earth blocks and trees, but they have differences. Piglins and Hoglins can be found in the Crimson Forest.
Sometimes, Piglins will gather in squads and attack Hoglins to get food from them.
Piglins love gold and if you have an ingot for them, they can give you a random resource.
The zombified piglin is a remade Zombie-human and appears as a result of Piglin's transition to the Overworld, but these creatures also appear randomly in the Cave.
Hoglin is a new source of food in Nether. You can find this mob in the Crimson Forest, but remember that this beast is very strong!
Zoglin appears when Hoglin moves from Nether to the Overworld.
In the Nether Update there are also many new blocks, some of which appear in the world by chance, others will need to be crafted. In the screenshot below, you can see some new blocks.
One of the new blocks is a "Target" that can be used to create new mechanisms. The Target block sends a red stone signal for a short time if any projectile hits it.
The main innovation in Minecraft PE (Bedrock) 1.16 Nether Update was the appearance of a new precious resource — netherite, which allows you to improve diamond tools and armor to netherite, increasing their strength.
A new netherite ingot is created by melting netherite scraps, which can be obtained from ancient fragments.
