One of the options that most people use in Kodi is to change its appearance (interface) to put one that they like more than the one that comes by default. We can change skin whenever we want and as many times as we estimate.
If you have never changed the Kodi interface, do not worry because it is easier than you can imagine, since right now there are many skins that we can connect to the one that Kodi brings by default. In addition, this change in appearance will not affect the operation of the application at all, since we can add addons, repositories, sources or whatever we need in the same way that we have been doing it.
How to change skin
To achieve another appearance, that is, change the original skin for another, we just have to follow a few simple steps that we are going to show you.
- We must open Kodi
- Once opened, it is time to click on Settings (toothed wheel that appears in the upper left part of the screen).
- Now click on the Interface option and then in the new window that opens, click on Skins .
- If we do not have any downloaded, something we will talk about shortly, we can click on Get more . Now we will get a few and we can choose the one we see that we like the most.
- At that time he will ask us if we want to maintain the change , to which we must answer Yes .
This section is where the vast majority of skins for Kodi are and we can install the one that best suits us, but it may be the case that you want to install it manually, an action that is carried out by downloading the zip file corresponding to the skin whatever you want, for later:
- Open Kodi and click on Settings .
- Next we click on Add-ons and then on Install from a Zip file . at that moment we select the file that we have downloaded before and proceed to install it on our Kodi.
- Now we must return to Interface , then to Skins and select the one we have installed from the list. This will be effective on Kodi.
The best skins for Kodi
The truth is that there are so many skins for Kodi that we have thought that the best thing is to make a selection of those that we like the most so that you have proof of them and select the ones that seem most related to you and your tastes.
This is one of the skins with a prettier interface that we can find, the only problem is that it is somewhat heavy and some teams may suffer a little to move it.
It is a skin similar to the interface of an Xbox 360. It is very fluid and is ideal if the main theme of your Kodi will be the movies, since it has several interesting options in this regard, such as being able to place them in alphabetical order or see the cover and synopsis on the cover when we select one.
It is clear what the intention of this skin is, since its name tells us everything. The appearance is that of having Apple TV, but on Kodi. It is quite light and it will not be a difficult interface for any device to handle. On television it looks really spectacular.
It is a different skin from the ones we have seen, since the menu stops coming out on the inside of the screen to go to the left side of it and also vertically and not horizontally. For the rest, it is a very simple interface, almost minimalist in design and without much fanfare. Its operation is exquisite.
It is a fairly simple interface in which we will find information about all the folders at a first glance and in which new elements are added as they appear, but without overloading the design at any time. In this case the fluidity is good and it is not a difficult skin to understand the first time, since everything is placed with a lot of sense.
It is a skin that has a very professional appearance and it shows that it is highly thought out and prepared. The menu is on the right side vertically, but with a sophisticated system to press layer option. On top of all this, it is fluid and we have a dynamic wallpaper system, that is, it changes photos, very well achieved.
This is one of the longest-running skins for Kodi. If we have a 4K television this should be our choice, since it uses the same resolution throughout the interface, with wallpapers that never go below those pixels. The performance is good, although if your team is just of potential, it may be too big for you.
The design is quite similar to that used by LG in its WebOS operating system, which it places on all its Smart TVs. But from there we will realize that it works really well and that it may be one of the best skins that there is currently for Kodi. We have everything at hand and it is very intuitive in its operation, so we will hardly have to get used to it.
It has the horizontal task bar, but this time it is at the top, offering a very elegant design and with all the information at first glance, something that is appreciated. It is also true that it is not extremely spectacular, but it is not the objective of this Kodi skin, rather it uses simplicity to attract the user.
The combination of the vertical taskbar with the rest of the horizontal previews is something that gives this skin a lot of charm. Everything is extremely fluid and the high definition images of its background, as well as the most visual parts such as the weather or the favorites, give this interface a special charm.
As you have seen, we can modify the Kodi interface with some really beautiful and practical skins. Now you know how you can do it.
