Kodi Coming To Xbox One As UWP App


ps4_xbox_one_kodiIf you have been using the Microsoft console for a long time, then you will remember the Xbox Media Center, also known as XBMC. Over time, XBMC has been ported to other platforms, and has become Kodi. The problem is that it strangely stopped supporting the Xbox, from where it was born.

While Kodi is a Win32 application for the Windows platform, it arrived in the Windows Store through the Desktop App Converter, also known as Centennial Project. Of course, this made it unique to Windows 10 PCs.

Today, at Microsoft’s Windows Developer Day event, the company announced that Kodi developers have been so satisfied with the Windows Store that they will convert their program into a full UWP. This means that it is once again available for the Xbox, or more specifically, on Xbox One.

Kodi is free for all, and is also open source. This means that you will be able to track the development of the UWP application, and if you are a developer, you can even contribute.

Microsoft has not provided a deadline for when Kodi will get to the Xbox One, or whether it will be on Windows 10 Mobile as well.
