While the Minecraft “Better Together” update starts rolling out onto Xbox now, and on Mobile/Windows 10 tomorrow, Nintendo Switch players would have to wait till later this year to get it.
Xbox has started rolling out now. Mobile/W10 will start tomorrow. Switch will release later this year – still working on connecting systems.

This comes as the development team continues to work hard to connect the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft with the other platforms.
When the “Better Together” update finally lands later this year, players on the Nintendo Switch would be able to play Minecraft with players from other platforms such as mobile and Xbox.
