Kodi launches the new beta version of Leia with minor updates

April 26th, 2019 · No Comments

The long wait is over! Finally, Kodi new version has been released! It has been a long story. Finally, after all the hurdles and struggles, kodi had released its beta version last month. Until the past month, we are using the new version of kodi. We had done with a  detailed analysis of the kodi’s new features, advantages, and shortcomings. We will share everything in detail. And we will help you to decide whether to install the new version are not. If you are a new user, you must look into this article for sure.

The Journey

First, let me explain how and why this journey started. Kodi krypton has reached this pinnacle of success, so why the new version is necessary? Is there any problem with Kodi krypton? These are some of the most common questions among the users. Let me tell you, if you are looking at a normal person point of view, you won’t see any problem with Kodi. But to think as a developer there are lots of problems with Kodi.

This is one of the major lag I faced while using Kodi krypton. Being one of the top and best media players, Kodi doesn’t support USB drive. Have you ever tried it? Yes, Kodi can’t play media from the USB drive. This was one of the major drawbacks in Kodi krypton. And during the next update, the problem was rectified.

So there are lots of such minor faults in Kodi. So they decided to update the Kodi to the new version. After a period of hard work for 1.2 years, they had finally released the Kodi Leia, a new stable version of Kodi. They have released two alpha version, before releasing this. And both of those alpha versions are miserably failed. And to tell about Kodi Leia, it is much better than the previous version.

Advantages of Kodi Leia

There are lots of advantages for Kodi Leia when compared to the krypton version. As we discussed earlier, it supports USB drive and is one of the most important updates of Kodi Leia. However, most of the device supports USB, you can directly use them with your Kodi. And if you are a gamer then you got lucky with this version. You can play a lot of games on the Kodi.

And the next big update in Kodi is, all the programs in the Kodi krypton version are dependent on one another. In Leia version, each program is independent and can work on their own. This will reduce the lag issue in the previous version. The  Krypton version entirely depends on the addon for streaming any of the online content. But in the Leia version, addon just acts as a tool to stream. the builds are taking over the addons.

Having all these advantages, I personally don’t like is the interface of the Kodi. So I prefer to change Kodi skins. You can either refer Kodi official site or refer to for the best ones. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage for Kodi. Since it is independent, if one file is lost it won’t work. Well, that’s all about the advantages and disadvantages of Kodi Leia version. Hope this article is informative.
