The first things you’ll see when entering the Add-ons menu are your already installed Android Apps. These have been automatically linked and displayed within Kodi for Android.

All the add-ons found within Kodi’s browser are legal to use and offer plenty of fun. There is, however, a second way to install different (unofficial) add-ons into your application. This can be done by installing them from an online repository. Installing these features is easy but we at Chinavasion do not advise anybody to do so. Since these unofficial add-ons are often used for piracy purposes, it is your own choice whether you want to go that route and deal with the potential consequences.
