The Bedrock version, which brings relatively isolated versions of the game into the fold, will be the first game on Nintendo Switch to feature cross-play support across Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, Android devices and iOS devices. Also, note that the update will be free for all players who already have Minecraft on Switch. Xbox Live achievements will be enabled on the Nintendo Switch version.

Microsoft has announced that the Minecraft Bedrock update, also known as Better Together, will finally be available on Nintendo Switch on June 21st which will allow cross-platform play. Whether they're working together to build the home of their dreams or standing shoulder-to-shoulder as they enter the End to take down the Enderdragon, there will always be something for friends to do together, regardless of platform.
