The forthcoming version of Kodi, codenamed Leia, doesn’t yet have a release date scheduled or a final feature list. Despite that, interested users can give it a go and try out the new version of the software. But keep in mind: the program is in its early stages of development, so you’d better watch out for bugs as things don’t work smoothly enough yet!

If you want to test the future Kodi 18 Leia, and you already have the Kodi 17 from the Windows Store installed on your machine, the installer will place the new version next to it.

We’re not yet sure how the new version of Kodi looks, but we do know that you will be able to install your own skins.

Kodi 18 Leia compatibility

The Kodi developers have committed to producing a UWP version of Kodi for the Windows Store that will also work perfectly on the Xbox. But it’s not yet definitive if this is the case of Kodi 18 Leia.

One thing we do for sure: the latest version of Kodi will no longer be compatible with Windows Vista. Vista users will still be able to use Kodi 17 but they might experience some compatibility issues regarding future add-ons. In order to run the latest version of Kodi, you’ll have to install Windows 7 or later versions of the OS.

There will definitely be some new features involved and the developers are pointing them out to users through their Dev Journals. The most important ones include voice search and recommendation integration for the Android TV build of Leia.

On Kodi’s website and in the Windows Store, you can now purchase the Kodi 17.1 “Krypton” which is the current release.
