One of the best applications that you can install to give a second life to any device is Kodi. It is a very powerful multimedia center which is highly customizable and is supported on virtually any device with a screen. That, of course, includes both Android TV and Android mobile systems.
The team behind the app never ceases to amaze and after the fantastic Kodi 20 Nexus, update 20.1 arrives that incorporates interesting new features, as well as corrections here and there.
The improvements coming with Kodi 20.1
before anything, Kodi 20.1 is not a radical change. The same developers detail all the fixes on their blog and clarify that “there are no new features”. Of course, we always recommend having the software updated to the latest version because we avoid security problems and, obviously, improvements are added.
Having said that, The biggest news in this version of Kodi have to do with Android devices. On the one hand, the ‘PyCryptodome’ module that produced errors in addons that used Python has been corrected. Also cPython has been updated to version 3.11.2 so that there are no bugs in addons that use ‘ElementTree’ with this language.
Another important novelty for Android has to do with sound. Kodi had been around for a while dragging problems with Audiotrack on Android and thanks to the work of the last months, it seems that these synchronization errors and other glitches will be eliminated.
In this version an algorithm has been introduced that runs for 30 seconds and diagnoses the content. No corrections are made in that time interval, but the internal value ‘m_disconAdjustTimeMs’ is updated to a new value each time a synchronization error is detected. After those 30 seconds, the algorithm stops and a delay is set for the content.
There are other interesting improvements such as the sFixed some problems with subtitles and fixes that improve stability and user experience. If you want to install Kodi 20.1 Nexus, the latest version should already appear in the Play Store although, as always, it is an update that is released in phases and it may not appear in your region.
If you want to secure, you can always do a manual installation through the platform page.
