Kodi Returns to Its Roots, Now Available on Xbox One

Kodi-Xbox-One-alpha-PVR With the right add-on Kodi should be able to act as a PVR for the Xbox One

It should be noted that this build isn't final yet and now there are several missing features compared to Kodi on PC, for example.

Kodi says that the alignment of all Microsoft devices to a common Universal Windows Platform was what allowed the team to bring the software to the Xbox One. You just need to go to the Xbox Store and use the search feature for the term "Kodi" and the newest version will be available for you to download and use as an application on the console.

While Kodi on the Xbox One looks and works nearly exactly like Kodi on any other platform, the functionality of it is a bit limited at the moment.

Kodi for the Xbox One seems like a pretty good start, and it will hopefully continue to mature so that it reaches a point where the classic desktop app can be replaced by the true UWP client sometime in the near future.

Kodi has been at the centre of a huge campaign by copyright owners to shut down these pirate streams over the past year, which has resulted in numerous most popular add-ons disappearing from the service.

Yet another goal is for major Hollywood studios and talent agencies to reach gender parity - " time's up on this impenetrable monopoly", the letter reads.


Back in June, the 64-bit version of Kodi 18 Leia was launched and work on the UWP application for Windows 10 picked up and here we are, a year later, with a UWP version of Kodi for Windows 10 and the Xbox One. Due to the nature of how UWP works our hands are tied in some areas. Some parts are not even finished yet and our developers are still working on getting it up to the regular standard.

"As of this writing there's limited access to only what's part of your Video and Music folders", Kodi said. It may not be as stable as the regular version and might be missing functions.

That means there are some restrictions on how it can be used on the Xbox One console. Knowing that the UWP version now only supports NFS, I'm hoping there's an easy way to hook into that from the Drobo for media streaming. Offering a vast library of add-ons provide Kodi users access to a wide range of streaming services (both legal and illegal).

If you don't know what Kodi is, you're missing out.

For now, the app will not be able to access external storage devices or the Blu-Ray Drive.
