Kodi 18.0 (Leia) Released: Here is How to Update (Beta) Version on Windows 10

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

Kodi developers had released their first Krypton series in February 2017. The Kodi 17.0 (Krypton) was released on February 5, 2017. Many bugs were reported by users in March 2017 but developers released Kodi 17.1 till Kodi 17.6 (Krypton) in order to fix all the existing bugs.

Kodi 17.6 is the most stable version till date. However, in March 2018, XBMC developers tested the beta version of Kodi 18.0 but users reported a huge bug to developers. Later, developers reverse it for further improvements.

But, recently Kodi 18.0 (Leia) has been released under beta testing. Though, the first Alpha testing was done in December 2017 but currently Alpha 3 testing going on.

I’ve been using Kodi 18.0 for the last two weeks and noticed some remarkable changes in UI and layout. However, it’s under beta testing, so we can’t rely on it completely. Anytime, any modification is possible.

In this two week journey, I noticed some new features of Kodi 18.0 (Leia). Many visuals have been changed and included some new features.

If you wanna try Kodi 18.0 (Leia) on your device and can’t wait for the stable release then follow this guide to update on Windows 10.

How To Update Kodi 18.0 (Leia) on Windows 10?

If you already using Kodi 17.6 or earlier version on Windows 10 then you first need to uninstall it. Once you uninstall Kodi 17.6, you’ll be able to install Kodi 18.0 on Windows 10.
