The respawn anchor, - known as "The Bed of the Nether" - sets the player's spawn point in the Nether, and was added in Java Edition 1.16 snapshot 20w12a, part of "The Nether Update". It can be charged by right-clicking on it with glowstone – up to four charges are supported. Pressing use on it causes the Respawn Anchor to become the player's set spawn. A charge is used every time the player dies. Charges are indicated by a dial on the side of the block.
If a player's respawn anchor is destroyed, all of its charges have been exhausted, or if the area around it is unsuitable for respawning (i.e Lava surrounding it), a message is displayed reading "You have no home bed or charged respawn anchor, or it was obstructed”, and the player will respawn at the world spawn point.
It is only usable in the Nether, as placing it in the Overworld or the End will cause it to explode if you attempt to activate it. You can also fill its charges with a dispenser. It gives out a redstone signal whenever you charge it up. It also emits a light level of three when you first charge it up. The light level after the first one then increases by four.
As the charges grow larger, the anchor lights up a larger amount of area, from not emitting light at 0 charges to emitting light at 15 when having all four charges.
