Kodi is coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One as a full UWP app

Announced at the Windows Developer Day Event (via Neowin) the non-profit XBMC Foundation announced that it is working working on a Universal Windows Platform version of Kodi, allowing it to return to Xbox.

Kodi is currently available for Windows PCs as a Win32 program, and is available from the Windows 10 Store via the desktop app converter. There are some fairly complex methods of getting Kodi working on Xbox One already, but it won't beat a native app.

Kodi hasn't announced a timeframe for when their UWP app will land on the store, nor have they said whether Windows 10 Mobile support would be thrown in, but we'll try and reach out for more information.
