How does it work?
Geyser is a middleware, which translates all the incoming and outgoing packets. With this being said, Geyser works as a standalone proxy, meaning you can use it to join any modern Minecraft Java server. Geyser can also be installed on your server as a plugin, so you can easily make your server compatible with Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
Join from anywhere
Geyser can be joined from Windows 10, iOS, Android, and even consoles (see here for how to set this up!) Geyser is tested working with a wide array of hosting providers, and, if you own the server, you aren’t limited by a Java account with our Floodgate plugin!

Using Geyser with Consoles
All consoles can join third-party servers – including Geyser servers – with workarounds. Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4 systems can join third-party servers using a third-party program called BedrockConnect. For technical information about the program, including how to run your own setup, see their GitHub repository (This program is not affiliated with GeyserMC). Other methods are also available for use.
NOTE: The main IP used for BedrockConnect is often blocked on consoles, if you run into issues with internet connection or joining servers after changing your DNS, consider using one of the other BedrockConnect servers on the BedrockConnect Github Page

- Go to your PS4 Home screen.
- Go to Settings.
- Go to Network.
- Select Set Up Internet connection.
If you are using wired internet, select “Use LAN Cable”, otherwise choose “Use Wi-Fi”.
- Select the Custom network creation mode.
- Select Automatic IP Address.
- For DHCP Host Name, make sure you select Do Not Specify.
- Under DNS Settings, select Manual.
- Enter the BedrockConnect IP for the preferred Primary DNS (Multiple options depending on region can be found on the BedrockConnect Github Page) and something like Google or Cloudfare’s IP for the Secondary DNS (126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52).
PS4 now has external server support, but if you’d rather try emulating a LAN game on your network on another device, here’s how you’d do that.
Note that this method will also work with any other Bedrock platform other than Nintendo Switch.
Using a PC
If you have a PC, you can use Phantom.
Using an Android Device
If you have an Android device, you have several options:
Using an iOS device
If you have an iOS 14+ device, you can use BedrockTogether.
