Kodi is a free open-source, cross-platform media player and also entertainment hub for digital media for Home theater PCs. The application performs with core functionality on Windows 10 S, but some add-ons may not be able to work. Microsoft is working to find a fix for this issue.

If you didn’t know, the Kodi media player application started out as XMBX aka Xbox Media Center. Now, it seems that Kodi reached Xbox One console in a few locations from Europe until now.

The alpha version of Kodi makes its way to Europe

Some Reddit users from a few locations in Europe such as Switzerland and the United Kingdom have been able to download Kodi version 18.0-alpha1 on their Xbox One consoles. 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 the other hand, users located in the United States are not able to install this version of Kodi for the moment. If you are from the US and you are trying to search for Kodi version 18.0-alpha1 in the Microsoft Store, you will see that the only version that you’ll be able to find is version 17.6 that is available on PC and that’s all.

Alpha version of Kodi and its main features

The alpha version of Kodi that some users from Europe were lucky enough to be able to enjoy supports a lot of features and functionalities from the Windows 10 version. This is a UWP application, and this may show that it’s getting ready to roll out for a broader launch.

Kodi definitely appeals to cord-cutters and the app is known for allowing people to download third-party plug-ins that illegally stream movies and television. This makes it quite infamous, as you can figure out for yourself.
