Keep Kodi and the installed add-ons updated
These days keeping your software updated is becoming more and more important because of possible security risks. Although we will never claim Kodi will become risk free when you are using it, we will certainly try to improve security and reduce possible risks in each version we release. This not only involves the core code of which Kodi is build but also all the external code libraries we use to make it a functional program. As such it is quite important that when possible you try to update Kodi to the most recent released final version.
We encourage everyone to regularly visit our https://kodi.tv website to check if there's any news or updates available. To aid in this we included a notification dialog to tell there's a new version available. Be sure to also read our news section.
What Kodi version am I using?
To find out which version of Kodi you are currently using is actually quite simple. Each time you start Kodi it will briefly show a splash screen image on which it says what version you are currently running. However, since this usually only shows up quite briefly it you might not have enough time to be able to read it. Another option is to navigate to the settings screen.
In case you have Kodi installed from Google Play Store you should usually get the latest available and compatible version that we support. If this is not the case Play store also offers a check for updates option somewhere in it's menu. For people who are using Windows 10 and have installed Kodi from the Microsoft Store applies the same. Once we publish a new version you should automatically receive that a few days after. As well as Play Store there's a check for updates button to make sure you are up-to-date. For the people who are not using the above methods will have to get the latest update manually by visiting our https://kodi.tv website and click on the "download" button and follow the steps presented.
