Kodi can be easily installed to most Android devices through the Google Play Store app, the same way you’d install any other Android app. It can be installed to Android mobile phones, Android tablets, and of course Android TV boxes. This is by far the easiest way to download Kodi for Android and shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes of your time. You’ll find that most Android devices give you access to the Google Play Store app.
Kodi for Android is by far the most widely used version of Kodi, because Android TV boxes are so easy to use, affordable, and make running Kodi feel more natural on your television set. Kodi for Android is actually far younger than other Kodi versions, and was only released a few years ago. Kodi for Android is much easier to install to devices that offer the Google Play Store, than it is to download to those without.
