This article applies to the PlayStation™ 4 and Nintendo Switch versions of Minecraft.
If you are experiencing any issues with lagging, crashing, or hanging on the Switch and PS4 platforms, you may be able to solve your issue with a full restart.
- Fully restart your console from the power options in settings.
- Select and launch Minecraft without opening other games or apps.
If this did not solve your issue, for a temporary workaround, try not signing in to a Microsoft account. While you won't have access to servers, Realms, or possibly Marketplace content, you can play single-player & split-screen worlds.
If you still have issues with gameplay performance, contact Minecraft Support.
