In final days of 2017, Kodi, an increasingly popular open-source media player, made its debut on Microsoft's Xbox One console. Following quick growth on other platforms, the app surfaced in an Alpha state, packing its flagship features cherished by cord-cutters and media enthusiasts.

Despite its official launch, earlier this week we reported that Kodi's Xbox One listing had disappeared from the Microsoft Store. Sourcing an issue which resulted in the listing's disappearance, the team announced its plans to deliver fix relatively soon.

Kodi is now available on Xbox One consoles once again, allowing those without the application to install it on their consoles. In the process, an automatic update has been released for existing installs with various fixes. Like the previous version release last year, Kodi 18 Leia is offered on the console in Alpha form.

For now, Kodi can be downloaded on your Xbox One by searching "Kodi" on the Microsoft Store, or via the store link below.
