[Android Apps]: KODI 19.1 Matrix is available to download

The latest version of Kodi 19.1  “Matrix” is now available to download , the secound stable compilation of the new generation of this popular player and content manager.

Without a doubt, Kodi is the most popular content manager today and as we have already seen, the most drastic change in this version occurs in the field of add-ons, where it jumps to Python 3 and this will block all add-ons that they are not updated , something that is going to generate many problems for sure. On the other hand, there is greater control over add-ons, since  the ability to overwrite in official repositories will be blocked. We will also have improvements to play content based on the AV1 codec  and now it is possible to decode this format by software. You have in this same article the complete list of changes of this new version that represents the future of KODI for the next few years.
