We are living in such an era that loads tons of stress on millions of people's minds. Either, it's because of hectic office assignments loaded by the boss or usual family responsibilities. In such a critical situation, our mind looks for some rest. Some people love to go on tour (who love to travel) and some relax with their favorite movies.
People who don't like to travel, even don't go to the theatre to watch movies can download movies from the internet. But, again, finding a good website for movies is the next level of pain. Because those websites are loaded with tons of advertisements and panic pop-ups.
All these issues have been solved by Kodi. It's a brainchild of XBMC developers who created a software which arranges all kind of entertainment at the single platform. Either, you want to watch movies, tv shows, live tv, videos, documentaries, music, or podcasts; everything available on Kodi.
The earlier version of Kodi 18.4 (Leia) has been replaced by the latest version. This version is known as Kodi 18.5 (Leia) while another update of Kodi 19 (Matrix) is under beta testing.
