Kodi supports home theater devices, tablets and large phones. The developers do not support or recommend using Kodi on phones with smaller screens. It supports Android devices using both ARM and Intel processors. In addition to its Android version, Kodi supports Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and second-generation or later Apple TV devices.

Kodi is media center software that plays videos and music, launches games and displays pictures. Its user interface scales up for screens as large as 10 feet, allowing it to run on Android game consoles, home theater PCs and other devices that directly connect to televisions. It is intended to be navigated with a remote control or a smartphone running a remote control app.

Kodi's official remote app for Android is called Kore. Kore is also available for free on Google Play, and is intended for use with PCs and other Kodi devices. This app turns an Android smartphone or tablet into a remote control for any Kodi device on the same network. The corresponding iPhone app, called Official Kodi Remote, is available for free on iTunes.
