Kodi For Xbox One Available Now

Kodi Media Player is now available for the Xbox One. Considering it began its life as the Xbox Media Center (XBMC), so technically it owes its roots on the Microsoft platform. That's just how the Kodi environment is.

There is also a user located in Portugal who stated that he has been able to download Kodi, the same version as the one mentioned above.

On a Windows PC, Kodi lets you easily browse media content from your hard drive, optical disc, local network and other Internet sources. As seen in the above image we can see that there is very strong resemblance between the two pictures, as both consist of an Xbox One X with a Battlegrounds character placed in the middle huddling in some grass.

Due to the nature of how UWP works our hands are tied in some areas.

It also adds that some parts haven't even finished yet and the developers are working on getting the app up to the regular standard that Kodi users expect. No access to the Blu-ray drive to start the disc or even an attached storage drive. The network location is also limited; the app can only access the NFS://shares folder when trying to use files via network.

There might be problems with some add-ons. It's not going to be as stable as the regular version and has missing features. We cannot promise to what extend we can get every feature working as it all depends on what is available to us developers. 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.

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.

Either way, it is an alpha version and on the surface it looks like a pretty good start to bringing Kodi back to where it started - on Microsoft's Xbox consoles.

The Xbox One app has been in the works since the end of 2016, and is available to download now through Windows and the Xbox Store. What bugs or missing features have you found?
