KODI 19.2 Matrix available for download and install


Nev version available for download and install Kodi 19.2 “Matrix, the second update of this controversial version that incorporates improvements and corrections, undoubtedly the most popular content manager today.

As we know the most important change in this version is on the add-ons aspect, now are based in Phyton 3 and this will block all add-ons that are not updated, something that will certainly generate many problems. On the other hand there is more control over add-ons that will block the ability to overwrite official repositories. We will also have improvements to play contents based on the AV1 codec, 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 years.

  • SOME ADD-ONS DON’T WORK WITH KODI 19,  you can downgrade and install KODI 18.9 to solve these problems.
