I recently purchased Minecraft Pocket Edition for Android and I started to play and after I finished I couldn't find the pause button where is it?

Going into the menu will pause the game. From the Minecraft wiki Android controls section:

  • Circle: Cycle inventory right
  • Square: Cycle inventory left
  • Triangle: Bring up inventory
  • D-Pad: Move
  • Right Touchpad: Look/Turn
  • Menu: Pause

Where the red circle is:

  • But there's normally a menu button some where right?

  • Why do my answers keep getting downvoted? They are all correct, and they link to official sources...

  • @Eli It may look like 3 little dots instead.
