- Download XBMC Android: For Android devices, the Android XBMC Download is located here in the Google Play Store and is labeled as “Kodi” instead of XBMC. To install Kodi Android is very easy: just find “Kodi” in the Google Play Store, select it, press INSTALL, then press OPEN to launch XBMC.

- Download XBMC Linux: Rather than downloading an installer file to Install Kodi on Linux, we must use Linux’s built-in software installation method. See the installation guide here. The “built-in software installation method” for Linux means using a command in Linux that adds the Kodi repository to Linux’s list of programs, then using a command to install Kodi from the repository. It’s easy and can even be done on a Chromebook.
