You can get snapshots by opening your launcher and then hitting the New Profile button and name it Snapshots and put a check mark in the box that says “Enable experimental development snapshots” then save it. You should then go back to the normal version and choose it from the box that drops down, which is in the left corner at the bottom of the launcher. Make sure that you back up the world.
Bear in mind that snapshots may corrupt your world so always make sure that you have them backed up or that you are running them from a different folder to the one your main worlds are in.
