Kodi 19.2 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 19.2 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.
Typically, we don’t recommend updating with these small incremental updates but there are quite a few bug fixes that may help with your Kodi experience.
If Kodi is currently working well for you, we don’t recommend updating.
It’s been awhile since the last release of Kodi was pushed out, so naturally, there are quite a few issues that have been addressed.
Important – Please note that TROYPOINT has not tested Kodi 19.2 with popular add-ons and builds.
It’s important to note that there is now a new addon system for 19 which also applies to 19.2.
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 19.2 as well.
Below are the bug fixes and new features pulled directly from the official Kodi Website.
