Long-awaited Kodi 18 release delivers Android Leanback suggestions, support ...

Users of open-source media player Kodi (formerly XMBC) have been waiting for release 18 (codenamed "Leia") for almost two years.

It has a massive list of changes, including Android Leanback suggestions, and support for retro gaming emulators.

Voice control: You can now search for content on Android TV with Google Assistant.

Digital rights management decryption support: Though Kodi says it's "early days," these tools help users make their subscription-based music and video services available via Kodi - which might mark a PR shift for a platform often accused of facilitating piracy.

Music library improvements: Better filtering, artist sort name, enhanced artwork, and more.

The changes make for a pretty significant overhaul, and that seems only fair considering users have been waiting a good few years (Kodi 17 came out February 2017 ).
