Kodi team posted,
We as Team Kodi looked at this with some disbelief and never thought it would work for Kodi due to the complexity and hardware usage for audio and video playback. We were quite shocked that it was that easy and of course gladly accepted this cooperation to get this done.
You don’t really have to go to our website anymore but straight away install Kodi from the Windows Store and automatically receive any future updates automatically. For us developers the added benefit is we’ll possible get some crash logs in case they happen and we could use these to identify problems and include fixes in next update.
