Kodi, one of our two favourite home theatre apps, has been updated to version 16, adding a few new useful features. This includes the very-handy long-press on TV remotes.
As the developers explain, Kodi can run on Android TV, but the remotes that come with Android TV units rarely have a context menu button. To get around this, the newest version will allow you to long-press the OK/Enter button on your remote to pull up more menu options in the Kodi app. Quite handy!
The new version also includes updates to the add-on manager, which now shows you all available versions of an installed plug-in, and the built-in music player also scans for added tracks more smoothly, assuming they’re tagged properly.
Kodi 16 also includes an event logger. In this list, you can see every change you’ve made to Kodi. When add-ons are updated, or new media is added to your library, it will show up here. You can use it to find out when and why an updated add-on broke, or manually fix some library information that didn’t import correctly. You can check out the full list of changes and download the new versions at the post below.
