You might have seen the name Kodi pop up online or hear about Kodi's prowess lately and wondered what it's all about. Kodi is a free and open-source media player software application available for multiple operating systems and hardware platforms, with a software 10-foot user interface for use with televisions and remote. Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons.

However, Kodi relies exclusively on your existing audio or media source, so it completely cannot exist apart from some video streaming services, such as Netflix and Hulu, or music streaming platforms, such as Spotify. If you have created tons of your favorite playlists on Spotify, or if you prefer to chose Spotify as your music source library, you could stream Spotify music with Kodi.
