Realms for Minecraft: Java Edition
If a trial is available, it will be displayed within the Realms menu in Minecraft. As with a normal Realm, you need to own the game and have a Mojang account to start a Realm. If you're not already logging in with your email address, learn how to migrate your account here.
There is currently a free 30-day trial available to players that have not previously owned a realm. It's available to you if you can see the diamond symbol as shown in the image below.
If you try Realms and your trial period runs out, you can continue playing by subscribing. For help with managing your subscriptions, go here.
As the service grows or changes, the number of available Realms trials may change. We do not have information on when more will become available. However, we do plan to make this service more widely available in the future.
