Last Wednesday during the Windows Developer Day Event it was announced that the free and open-source media player software application, Kodi would be coming to the Xbox One. The non-profit XBMC Foundation is currently working on a Universal Windows Platform version of Kodi, to make it compatible with Microsoft’s eighth-generation console.
For those of you unaware of what Kodi is, it is an open-source media center app that has evolved over the last decade. Alongside one of the best media centers you’ll find anywhere, Kodi allows you to consolidate all your favorite videos, music and photos into one place. Currently, Kodi is available for Windows PC owners as a Win32 program, which can be accessed on the Windows 10 Store through the desktop app converter.
It is unknown exactly when the UWP Kodi app will launch on the Xbox One. However, it is safe to assume that the app will launch in the next several months or so.
