By Novak Bozovic / May 10, 2021

After years of developmentKodi 19.0 'Matrix' was finally released in February 2021. Unlike the previous "major" versions of Kodi, the latest one brought a significant shift that left many Kodi users without their favorite addons. However, that didn't stop Kodi's developers from continuing their work on the application, releasing a new version just now – Kodi 19.1 'Matrix.'

If you're a long-term Kodi user, you probably already know how minor updates work and what they represent. So, without any surprise, Kodi 19.1 'Matrix' is focused on fixing performance issues and bugs, providing a more pleasurable user experience overall. Various aspects of Kodi 19.0 have been improved, spanning across all of its supported platforms. 

Perhaps the biggest change that comes with Kodi 19.1 is the application’s availability on Xbox consoles. Even though Kodi 19.0 has been in the Microsoft Store since its launch, Kodi 19.1 is now available on pretty much any Xbox console as well. So, here's what else is changed.
