Kodi 19.1 Release with Bug Fixes, Download Links & Updates

Kodi 19.1

Kodi 19.1 has officially been released and is now considered the “stable” version of this software.

The following article shows the new features, updates, and changes within Kodi 19.1 which have been pulled directly from the official Kodi Website.

You can also download the most recent version using the links below or learn how to update.

We usually don’t recommend updating within incremental updates of a specific version such as this unless things aren’t working properly.  But, if you are using Kodi 19 we suggest updating this time due to the number of bix fixes that were addressed.

The Kodi developers have done a fantastic job squashing a large number of bugs in a quick period of time.

Important – Please note that TROYPOINT has not tested Kodi 19.1 with popular add-ons and builds and many don’t work properly with this new release.

It’s important to note that there is now a new addon system for 19 which also applies to 19.1.

Some addons aren’t compatible with 19 yet and you will find an updated list of addons and builds that currently work.

These should also work fine with Kodi 19.1 as well.

Xbox specifics

  • This version also brings 19.1 to the Xbox – while 19.0 has been in the Microsoft Store since launch, this was Windows-only while we found a way to adequately test the new release on Xbox. We’ve fixed that now, so Xbox users will automatically upgrade from 18.9 to 19.1 if you’ve got auto-update enabled. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a known memory limitation – present in 18.x as well – that causes Xbox application crashes with 4k content, so please be aware.

  1. I updated Kodi 18.3 with no problems. However none of my Addons are working correctly. They appear to work well but the ultimate result is only one or two sources only appear when selecting a popular video.

    I did not want to take the time to reload Kodi 18.2 so I decided to use Cyberflix until the Addons update to this new version. I must say I was impressed with Cyberflix and the many Debrid sources that it produces.

    I hope and think that that the Addons will be updated in the near future. I suggest you check that your Addons are compatible before updating to Kodi 18.3.
