It is exclusive to the Java edition

Features of spectator mode

There are few features in spectator mode that you really should know about. You are allowed to fly through blocks in this mode. Not to mention, you can even utilize X-ray vision to make things easier for you. Moreover, it is also possible for you to move any kind of entity and see all kinds of objects around. 

  • This removes HUD

Due to the lack of the HUD, it may feel quite disorienting for being in spectator mode. You can still chat and use subtitles of your choice. But aspects like your hunger bars, health, and inventory bars are likely to disappear for obvious reasons. Players are allowed to see the inventory in this mode. On top of that, they can even retain items. It just becomes difficult to interact with an inventory. This is the biggest problem you should face while using this mode.

  • You can go invisible

In spectator mode, you have the option of going invisible and other players will not be able to see or find you. This is one of the best reasons why spectators are supposed to use this mode most of the time. But if the Glowing status effect remains active, then non-spectators are supposed to see you even if you are invisible. You can really pull these pranks on your friends while playing Minecraft. 

  • Normally you don’t die

For spectators, death is not an option, to say the least. In two ways, you can incur damage while playing this game. You can either fall into the void or get killed through kill command. Apart from these two things, every other way is safe, to say the least. Thing like suffocation is not enough to kill a player. Hence, it would help if you did not have to worry about getting killed most of the time. It would help if you explored so many things about this game.
