[Android Apps]: KODI 19.4 Matrix now available

The latest version of Kodi 19.4  “Matrix” is now available to download , the forth 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.

Change list:
    • We’ve had some challenges getting the Xbox version released because of some specific platform requirements needed for 4k/HEVC playback. With the help of @CelesAtXbox (thanks so much!) we think we’ve now genuinely got those covered to Microsoft’s satisfaction, and can finally get this into the Windows Store.
    • There’s also an issue with an expired certificate for 18.9 on Xbox, which effectively takes that version off that platform for new installations, so timing is opportune to fix that.
    • There’s been a long-standing Atmos audio issue on all platforms that support TrueHD passthrough – we know that this this has been irritating people for some time, and we’ve now been able to fix this.
    • We unintentionally introduced a bug in 19.2 that broke Airplay, so we’ve fixed that one.
    • A couple of gaming-related fixes, notably a controller fix and some shader issues on Retroplayer.
    • We’ve fixed a bug that affected thumbnails for watched episodes when hiding episode spoilers.
    • We’ve much improved the metadata shown in Linux app stores.
