How to Install Kodi on Xbox One X/S and Xbox Series X/S

Since Kodi now comes as a native Xbox app, you can install it on a wide range of Microsoft's game consoles - and that includes an Xbox One X/S and Xbox Series X/S. This is a very simple procedure, and it won't take more than a few minutes of your time. We're sure you're eager to get started, so here's all you need to know on how to install Kodi on an Xbox console.


Keep in mind that Kodi 19 ‘Matrix’ is the latest available version (during the last couple of months, Kodi 19.1, Kodi 19.2, and Kodi 19.3 were released as well). Still, if you haven’t updated your Kodi yet, know that the latest version of this application breaks compatibility with a large number of add-ons.

You’ll need to wait for third-party developers to make their add-ons compatible with Kodi 19, which could take a while. We’ve seen some progress when it comes to add-ons from Kodi’s official repository. However, the situation is still very problematic for add-ons that come from outside the official Kodi repository.

Therefore, if you use many add-ons, stick to Kodi 18.9 for now. That’s because downgrading from Kodi 19 to Kodi 18 can be a very tricky task to accomplish (even impossible in many cases).

How to Install Kodi on Xbox

At the moment, you have 2 equally simple methods of setting-up Kodi on an Xbox. You can do that via your computer or via the console itself, as you can see just below.

Method #1: Using Microsoft's App Store

Here's how to install Kodi on an Xbox by using the Microsoft App Store. This procedure is done on your Windows 10 PC, from where you can remotely install Kodi.

  • Open the Microsoft Store app on your computer. That can be done by launching the Start Menu and typing in 'Store.' Hit 'Enter' to open the app and wait until it fully loads.
  • In the top-right corner, you’ll see a search bar. Use it to search for 'Kodi.'

Here's how to install Kodi on an Xbox by using your game console and its Xbox Store App.

  • Power ON your Xbox and wait until you see its 'Home Screen.'
  • Next, go to the 'Microsoft Store' app, which comes preloaded on your Xbox console.
  • Then, click on 'Search' and type in 'Kodi.'
  • Navigate to Kodi’s icon using the list of search results and open the app's overview.
  • Finally, select 'Install.'
  • Wait until the app is ready for use - and then launch it. That's it!
