It uses a 10-foot user interface designed to be a media player for the living-room, using a remote control as the primary input device. Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons.

Reviews From google play store

Very confusing to setup. Unintuitave and too many places for different settings. If they ever simplify or amalgamate all settings into one interface this could be a rockstar app. Also it always downloads the wrong metadata which is a BIG problem. Seems no way to only use filename and insists on using bad data hidden in the files themselves.

Great app to organize your movies! I enable "look for remote UPnP players" in services settings so i can use my samsung 4k built in video player. Because I've noticed that 1080p movies looks better using my TV's video player than my Mi Box S/Kodi. The problem is...the volume is always set to 100%. It feels like I need to change my underwear everytime! Wish that it can detect my TV's current volume level. Or set it 10% NOT 100%. Also, I've set my Mi Box S resolution to 4k but Kodi still in 1080p.

At this time, I cannot give it anything more than 1 star, as it won't even load. I can install, open & use Kodi 17.6 but whenever I update to any version of Kodi 18, I get a black screen, right after it tells me that it's initiating first run....... I'm running the latest Android OS.

Kodi is a powerhouse media app that supports RESOLUTION & REFRESH RATE SWITCHING even on Android! My entire house uses kodi as a frontend for media stored across servers, nas, and local. I use plexkodiconnect, SMB, HTTPS, & FTP for backend. It took some time to set everything up but it's been flawless since. I use Kodi on Windows 10 HTPC's and Nvidia Shield, and even my Note 9. I dont stream illegal content or use shady addons. These are threatening the future for kodi and it needs to end now.

For the last week or two the app won't let me open it 90% of the time... I've done everything but try to uninstall the app so I hope that works.... It took forever to learn the app and it has worked great for the last year or two so I'd hate to stop using it so please fix the latest update or you may use a valued customer because I love telling people about your app... Thank you,Steve

More reliable than VLC, although it crashes every time when opening files from other apps instead of from the builtin file browser. Better support for multiple audio/subtitle languages. "Surface" acceleration disables video, and why does weather appear throughout the interface?

Most frustrating app ever. If you have lots, meaning endless time to waste, then this is your app. Sure it's free but there's a reason. Be warned you'll get half way through a tv series and then get a message "No streams available" AaaND you're done. Sorry kids maybe good programming learning, practice but gotta do better in the real world.

Work's Pretty good for it to be on your Phablet/Phone/Tablet!! I like it giving I don't use it as much as I should, but I'd like to change that if..::1 You guy's(The Owner's of The App) make an how to video of how to get certain premium channel's like HBO, CinaMax, ShowTime, Starz, Epix, IFC , HDNet, and a few other and have the Live Channels nit the Pre-recorded one's and get the Main Sportscenter Live also and alot more quality video channels..Nothing crazy maybe then I'll be totally on board

Great when it doesn't crash. Black screen on start up nothing but clearing the data resolves this. I use this on a firestick and it's a real pain typing with the remote, thankfully lazykodi is an easy and short to remember address to type.

5 starts because i can't give it 50!!! Any negative reviews are plants or operator error. I've survived solely on Kodi for almost 6 years now and haven't missed a movie title or a broadcast/subscription service series the entire time. There's a bit to learn to get it set up but with Google U, it's nothing and with more and more subscription services hording there titles cutting the chord doesn't quite mean there same thing anymore. Anyway, Kodi, couple add-ons, >20meg down and worst case a $6 VPN

Awesome entertainment device I love the many many addons that work through Kodi great category's for movies and picture quality kodi is hard to figure out so I tried the configuration device again awesome works great in loading addons Kodi is worth the time and trouble to figure out #1 with me TVs is great as well keep up the great work team 5 stars with my blessing

Black screen when starting the app. Reinstalling doesn't help. Please fix this issue! Many users seems to experience the same problem!

Its a good app but it gets 3 stars for now because i just installed it yesterday and now today its not working so tell it gets fixed its staying 3stars sorry. Update i had to uninstall it because it never starting working again i tryed everything i even email them for help and it got me no where so 1 stars it would be 0 if i could..vary upsetting and angrying app..

Since update my sound in kodi randomly stops working. Only way to fix is to reinstall. Have done that multiple times and am no longer interested in using until fixed. I have tried different builds and no builds and there is no difference

Priceless app and always has been. I've viewed most of the content in my life through this app. The completely untechincal people that complain about this app and simply cannot understand it should immediately remove it and use an apple TV.... Stop leaving bad reviews about one of the best apps ever invented for mobile and TV...... Zzzzz

Best free tv / movie app player out there. Runs great on nvidia shield tablet. I am very impressed with the ability to add on external apps too. Best normal joe bloggs app since youtube. A must own for movie lovers.

Doesn't work. All the plugins that worked fine in the previous version are now broken. On top of that, the app is super confusing to use; sorry I wasted my time on it...

Bro honestly, Kodi is awesome. I use it on my phone, computer, xbox, and my Amazon Firestick, the addons make everything so much easier.

This app is like learning a new operating system. Once you learn you will love it. Wizards can be really helpful. You need to check your version of Android to find out what version of Kodi you can use

Can not get it to work. It keeps crashing. It's very anoing. I've had previous versions and had no problems

Limitless functionality is badly let down by total lack of Android phone interface development. 3 stars for eye strain.

Yah gotta step yah internet speeds up(connect to wifi) & use a VPN or Kodi won't work... Still the BEST app(if you know what your doing).

Overall excellent experience with Kodi. My question is when will picture-in-picture be supported?!

FORCE CLOSING ISSUE AGAIN!!! out of nowhere kodi is force closing and will not open at all! Please fix this ASAP! Im missing out on all my tv shows and live tv!

love this app, have used it for like 3 years but, I just upgraded to a one plus 7 pro and the current version of the app does not load at 90hz mode making it a real hassle to use. FIXED. REBROKEN

The recent update is a nightmare. Won't open and when it does it's just a black screen.

Since the last update the app has completely stopped working on my one plus 7 pro. It is just a black screen.

UI is not mobile friendly. Full app on landscape mpde is bad idea. Small icons and links difficult to navigate.

Launches fine after first install then just get a black screen on subsequent launches. Uninstalled it.

Was working fine with music & videos on mobile. Now, nothing but black screen even after reinstall. Useless & taking up space so uninstalling for something functioning.

Does not work with Razer Phone 2. Black screen after initial startup.

Not very touch screen friendly. Works fine with an remote control for example on a raspberry but the same gui in a tablet is almost a disaster.

Only a few loads completely worked so far. Hoping all will be i would keep app for content already added to app that was already in the app when downloaded

I haven't been able to use this ever since v18... Loads and shows black screen. I've tried just about everything and it doesn't work.

Unable to watch anything due to either constantly force closing or a continual load screen.

Work for 1 day, now whenever i try and start app i get black screen. Very disappointing

Love watching movies that are in theaters from home.... Great job.. Love this app... Just dont like that it doesnt always work... But still great...

This latest update just killed the app. I'm on a Galaxy S10 plus and the app starts loading and crashes everytime. Devs please revert this update to the previous version. Thnx.

Used to work great now wont play, after 10 minutes still wont get to a single episode

Wish you could set the display refresh rate to 90Hz. All I get is a black screen until I reset to 60 Hz

when opened it I just see blank...no menu appear...have problem with android 8.1...pls fix it ASAP...

I guess they didn't like my previous review, since I can't find it here anymore. Kodi does work, but is it worth the time, you be the judge. I just wasted couple of hours setting it, in which time I would've already seen a whole movie via conventional means. It could be useful for someone who doesn't know their way around the internet, but then, how on Earth are they going to set up Kodi?!

Well today 9/13/19 after update app crashed 5 times....Now what?....can't watch movies...says kodie stopped working...

Crash. Black screen. Kodi crash all the time even without playing any video. Then black screen.

This hasn't worked in 2 days. It wont open at all. I really enjoy the app when its working

opens and closes on oneplus5 used to work great cant get any version to work these days

It is good app man but once per month you cannot enter the kodi cause it is crashing

Latest update.... Still crashes when trying to use upnp server... Pretty much plays everything else perfectly.

Thank you for updating and fixing this app so I can once again use it!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 all the way!

In 4 to 5 years i have used kodi.it just get's too be more and more!

Good app, but will give it 5star if i could cast to my tv, or Chromecast

Nothing but a black screen after granting the Storage access permission.

Very capable media organizer and steamer among other things

not easy to use or set up and use......::::"""""''''/////

I know updates are good but kodi stay updating and that cuts down on my entertainment. Keep doing what yall doing . you have saved me a lot of money and time.

My experience5 times putnew builds on each time crashed kodi 18 u/s!!!!!!

Does not work with high refresh rate phones.

It is a great system once you learn to set it up correctly

After last update Kodi crashes after 1sec of playing - became completely useless :(

Don't know why you would break something instead of fixing it now I can't install any builds onto kodi so now it is useless thanks a lot

Don't update to Leia. DON'T UPDATE TO LEIA!!! If your kodi is working Don't update to Leia!!!

Cannot auto enable subtitles in mkv files.

Limitless swiftstreamz is not being fixed.

Awful interface not suitable for use on small screen.

Great except fit the fact it keeps crashing

If you are willing to put the time in , you could have it set up to watch just about anything. Easy to use after you get a feel for how it works. It is what you make of it.

I wish it was easier to update the movie players better. It plays it good for a certain amounts of time, then it gets hard to play the movies. Just wish that there was an easier tutorial to updating it and maintaining the applications. Besides those problems, its an awesome app to have when on a low budget, when it comes to watching movies and/or tv shows.

Horrid! Don't leave 17.6! Wish that I never downloaded this. It just stops and goes back to the streams and or just freezes, it is horrible!!! I want to know how to go back to 17.6? Why would you put out something as unstable as this is? Kodi is wonderful, fantastic....but this is the bottom of the barrel. Please fix or provide the link to get 17.6 back!

Amazing saves me $ and entertains kids and adults alike!!

Best app ever for free movies on your phone for those who say its not good your wrong u just dont know what your doing and not following the tutorials correctly i can install apps like there no tomorrow on it thanks kodi :)

Totally lost functioning of players klub!!! Have no problem on other droid box still running 18.3 it is 9/7. 10:25. CTS. Players Klub web site has crashed!!! I couldnt figure out a way to revert to 18.3 and now have to reprogram all my addons then my favs. #%&####!!!

I've used to use kodi and it was gr8 , but now it's just a pain to use , it keeps freezing so have to close and open again ,, add ons work intermittently and have to find their new urls, then the hassle of finding a stream, it can take 20 minutes b4 your watching anything on a good day! never used to be like this

Exit works sometimes and sometimes not.

Could you fix it so when I lock my device and unlock it the song or video is in the same spot I left it?! super frustrating especially when your listening to a long audio file and have to try to find your place all over again. doesn't seem like a difficult thing to fix!!

All of you with issues- Your issues are user or device centric. Maintain kodi on an updated device and you are good. Using a twelve year old comouter or first gen firestick isnt going to cut it. Limited on budget phones as well. Know your device, maintain your build, and use a semi modern phone -android box and computer and you should have no issues. Kodi is the bomb. You dont onow how to configue it than get someone who does.

I don't like this app. When i started i have to turn my phone horizontal.

Great - when it works. Video controls on ISO DVD are unresponsive half the time and I have to reinstall Kodi for the controls to work. Also, I cannot add my movies stored on an external hard drive to the library and I'm forced to navigate to my video files everytime.

what a dreadful experience, I followed some guides on YouTube to figure out how to get this app up and running then tryin to load anything is super slow and ⁹ times out of 10 nothing loads. very clunky on android even my PC using windows 10 and a low high end cpu(i7) and gpu(1080ti) with a wired 1gb ethernet connection and I cant get a 720p or SD resolution to load, so they fact they tease you with 4k movies is quite annoying. great idea horrible execution this needs more work, ALOT OF IT!

A good port to android (I use it on my pc and I have it on android just because the interface is familiar). Just don't use it for pirating stuff because its not made for that and there are better apps for that on android.

Requesting picture in picture(PiP) feature! That would make it the complete package

I love kodi but this latest build is making a loud static noise, and won't actually play any audio all you can hear is the loud static. Im running this on an LG Aristo Arm7 android 7.0 with a snapdragon. Any help would be appreciated, if it can be fixed ill give 5 stars

Have used kodi for years now. Absolutely love it. Got it on my phone, laptop, pc and htpc. Can absorb all my digital media no matter which device I use. Without a doubt 10 out of 10 stars.

Pretty dreadful on Android, can't copy paste, screen is stretched which makes the text/fonts difficult to read etc. Hoped this would be good and was extremely disappointed. Couldn't get anything to work at all, zip files failed to download/install.

Weirdly tiny keyboard that you can't copy and paste on. Trying to add a source means you have to memorize it or write it down first. Giant PITA.

Glad to see Kodi available as an Android app. It's nearly perfect as a network music controller. What it lacks is a skin with vertical orientation for handheld phone use (I've searched but haven't found one yet). It's awkward and fussy to use in horizontal mode on a phone so I hope this mobile-friendly feature can be added soon.

update caused control issues,cannot page forward during shows. ie.when you have seen part of a show and want to jump forward to where you were, you cannot do it.

Problem with builds being removed

I have been attempting to download kodi 18.3 for a couple of freakin hours and all the playstore does is spin it's little wheel. So no I don't have a rating cause I can't get the freakin thing open. Thanks (maybe) Patricia *****Got it now to try it........

Works great shouldve installed a long time ago.

It's a very useful app, although it's not user friendly. You've got to know what you're doing in order to get the most out of Kodi

Kodi is old outdated, apks are a thousand times better, like TV Zion, Morpheus, tea tv.... Cody is good only for the retro game, I only use it for the video gaming like retromania build

should've been good, but flaky and not user oriented. cant get constant dolby digital (passthrough ) and always have to enable subtitles (already set as default)

Excellent app. Also with the right add-ons, it makes it totally complete and useful!

Apps been crashing after update

works great just a lot of users have zero clue what their doing add a build and you will have no issues YouTube has step by step instructions on how to do it

Really good. Has basically every movie ever made, but its a little slow

A great piece of software. Paired with a decent Raspberry Pi and a tv tuner hat (£50) and you get network tv throughout the home. I've been running Kodi for years like this and it's great. Saves on complicated home wiring.

Been using kodi for a few year now, definitely worth installing as you get everything from movies, TV shows etc..

If you have a OnePlus 7 Pro you need to switch display to 60Hz manually because on the default 90Hz it will just show a black screen.

I love everything about kodi.tv it's really great..and I'm 64 years old..it's been fun loading it up...thankyou
