Kodi is a free, open-source, and flexible software that Microsoft first released in 2004 as a media center for the Xbox. It was then owned by another team, which changed the name from XBMC (Xbox Music Center) to Kodi, and it now has a strong community and has been around for 20 years. Kodi is a simple operating system that lets other programs be built on top of it. Because it can play any media file, it is the most recommended app. You can now customize Kodi by installing free add-ons or builds. Kodi doesn’t come with any content, but users can install a third-party plug-in with their content. It doesn’t agree with streaming content protected by intellectual property rights without permission from the rights owner.
If you want to upgrade the version, you must install a version that Kodi has officially released. Other versions may not be able to be upgraded.
