How To Install and Use Wako App to Stream Kodi from your Phone

wako kodi

The following tutorial will provide you with step-by-step instructions to install and setup Wako App for Kodi.

Wako is a mobile app designed to work with Trakt to stream content via Kodi.

With Wako, you can browse and search Movies and TV Shows right on your phone.

Legal Notice: TROYPOINT will not be held liable for data breaches, infected/hacked devices, or ISP logging caused by using unverified 3rd party applications, IPTV Services, addons, or streaming websites.


After making a selection within the app, you can simply push to play preferred content directly to your TV!

Wako works with all streaming devices and is available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The directions below will show you how to install Wako and how to set it up properly to watch content on your Kodi device.

Please make sure to read and follow all instructions to ensure the app is setup properly.

NOTE: Prior to using the Wako app, you must have a working Kodi add-on installed on your device. Install your favorite addon or use the TROYPOINT Best Kodi Add-Ons list to find a reliable choice.

In the instance below, I am using Yoda to stream content. I have also enabled auto-play within the addon which allows the title to automatically play after selection instead of browsing through sources.

(At the bottom of this page is a guide that will provide you with instructions to setup auto-play within Kodi if you wish to do so)

If you are looking for a simple way to install the best add-ons and repositories quickly and efficiently, I suggest using a Kodi Build. Click on this link for a list of the Best Kodi Builds.

How To Use Wako Kodi App

Open the wako app and search for or click your desired content.

In the instance below, I am streaming Night of the Living Dead which is considered one of the Best Public Domain Movies by TROYPOINT.

After you find the title you are looking for simply select it and Click Play on Kodi:

click play on kodi

You will notice your Addon working in the background of Kodi to find links:

yoda pulling links

Once the addon is finished browsing for sources, you can select a link OR if you have auto-play setup, the film will automatically play!

NOTE: To learn how to setup auto-play in Yoda or any other add-on, keep reading for step-by-step guide to enable this option

This will then open the film within the app where you have all controls right at your fingertips!

As you can see, this allows you the ability to pause, play, fast forward, and exit out of the Movie/TV Show along with a few other options.

Using Wako makes it easier than ever to watch your favorite content in Kodi!

How To Setup Auto-Play for Automatic Streaming

Follow these steps to enable auto-play within your preferred Kodi add-on which will eliminate the process of browsing and selecting provided links for your chosen content.

In the steps below I am using the Yoda addon, however, these steps will work for nearly all Kodi add-ons available for installation.

1. From the addon main menu Click Tools (This may also say Settings)

click tools

2. Click Settings: Playback

click settings: playback

3. Change Default action to Auto Play

change default action to auto play

4. Click OK

click ok

Auto Play is now enabled on your Kodi device!

Wako Details & Features

Wako works with the Kodi addon to display and play content directly to your streaming device. Users can edit the addon to their specific preferences which will elevate your streaming experience.

To use Wako properly you must have Kodi open on your streaming device. However, I have found the addon does not need to be open and Wako can work from the Kodi home-screen.

To get the most out of Wako, I highly suggest integrating a Trakt.tv account within the app. This will track and sync your content across all platforms and devices making your streaming experience a breeze!

How To Setup Trakt.TV on Kodi

You can also setup Providers within Wako under the Settings Tab. This will personalize the app to use only providers you add/select.

Overall, Wako is an awesome app with tons of features that will simplify your viewing experience.
