Kodi 18 Leia confirmed features

With Kodi 18 only just in beta, the list of new features isn’t huge at the moment. You can keep up-to-date with what’s being added, by checking the Kodi 18 (Leia) changelog. There’s not a huge amount on the list at the moment, but expect that to change as development increases pace.

Android Leanback suggestions, search and voice typing

While the changelog has mostly minor changes, for now, Kodi has implemented a few big changes for the Android version of its product, including Android TV. Given that Android TV powers a lot of the top Kodi boxes, these changes are going to impress a lot of people.

First, Kodi content will now appear on the main Android TV home screen, alongside content from big providers, such as YouTube and Netflix. According to the Kodi blog introducing the feature, you’ll get suggested content, including random unwatched movies and episodes, and music albums.
