    I have the 1st gen Fire TV box & I noticed the “Music” library presentation has changed…Maybe it’s part of the new interface that’s coming?
    I’ve placed a link to the photos below…

    Great video, good to hear they probably wont mess with kodi in future Fire TV updates. Would love to know when the Fire TV box will get upgraded, however. Im holding off on buying one until a new version comes out.

    Great episode as always! Definitely do not mind the length when there’s so much to talk about. I already have a question for next episode in mind.
