These features were once in Minecraft, but were removed.

List of Removed Features

Cyan Flower

Cyan Flowers were once in Minecraft Pocket Edition as replacements for the Rose. They were removed in Update 0.9.0 when they were replaced by Poppies.


Cameras were added as a way to take screenshots in-game. They were only accessible through inventory editing and were removed in Update 0.9.0. 

It was stated it may be re-added with a proper image sharing system.

Gravel Paths

Gravel was used as paths in Villages, but in Update 0.11.0, they were replaced by Grass Paths.

Nether Reactor

The Nether Reactor was replaced by the Nether dimension in Update 0.12.1.

Nether Reactor Core

Nether Reactor Cores are just what the name implies: the core for the Nether Reactor. They were removed along with the exclusion of the Nether Reactor.

Glowing Obsidian

Glowing Obsidian is what the Nether Reactor Core reifly turns into when activated. Since it was a Nether Reactor related block, it was removed due to the Nether Reactor being removed.


The Stonecutter was removed from Survival Mode in Update 0.13.0, and its functions were moved to the Crafting Table. It can still be found in the Creative Mode inventory.
