In this post, you will find the detailed instructions to install the Xanax build on Kodi. The instructions work on the complete range of Kodi platforms including the Fire TV devices (FireStick, FireStick 4K, etc.), Mobiles, Computers, Raspberry Pi, and more.
Xanax is a very popular Kodi build. It is often considered as the fork of the Durex Build. The Durex Build was also very popular once. However, it is defunct now.
The Xanax Build for Kodi comes with a fine line-up of popular Kodi addons such as Exodus Redux, Loki, Numbers, Deceit, The Magic Dragon and many more. This means the build has plenty of streaming options to offer.
It is one of the most user-friendly builds too. Even if this is your first Kodi build experience, it will not take very long to get familiar with it. The build’s side is slightly on the heavier side. Yet, I am surprised that it works smoothly on FireStick, Android Boxes, and other low-RAM devices. That’s probably because the build has been thoughtfully coded.
Xanax is now included in our collection of Best Kodi Builds. Personally speaking, it is one of my favorite builds too.
How to Install Xanax Build on Kodi
Xanax Build is not sourced from the official Kodi repository. It is sideloaded onto Kodi from a third-party source. This means we need to tweak a system setting of Kodi to allow the installation.
So, let’s first get this part covered. Here are the steps:
– Access the Kodi Settings
You can do that by clicking the gear symbol on the home window in the top-left corner
– When you see the following set of options on the Settings screen, click System
Users with Kodi 17.6 need to click System Settings
– This window is now displayed. On the left click Add-ons
– Now the Unknown Sources security option is displayed. Movie the toggle and switch it ON
– A brief warning message is displayed. Dismiss it by clicking OK
We are all now set to install Xanax build on Kodi

A Quick Look at the Xanax Kodi Build
You don’t need to do anything special to start the build. As I said, just open Kodi and the build will load up automatically.
Here is the new home screen of Kodi with the Xanax Build:
It has the standard layout of menu-bar and submenu-bar combination. The featured/recommended videos are displayed above the menu bar. The featured video-addons appear underneath the submenu bar
You may access the following streaming categories from the main menu: Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Music, Family, Sportz TV (requires Sportz TV IPTV subscription), Misc.
The quick access to featured content and addons makes it easy for you to start streaming without having to dig into the build any further. However, if you want to watch something that you don’t see on the home screen, you must search the addons manually. To go to the list of the addons navigate to Add-ons > Video Add-ons from the home screen
Here are some of the popular addons Xanax build sources its streams from: DeathStar, DejaVu, Venom, Numbers, Luxray Video, Mercury, cCloud TV, Deceit, 7 of 9 (AIO), Exodus Redux, Limitless, Loki, Seren, ReleaseBB, Sportowa TV, SportsDevil, The Magic Dragon and more.

To tell you the truth, I am really fond of the Xanax Kodi build. It has an impressive user-interface, which gives access to all the important things without making itself cluttered. It follows the regular layout standards, but the build is smoother than many other Kodi builds I have used.
The home screen features sections for popular categories like Movies, TV Shows, Sports, etc. This gives you quick access to a wide range of content. You may even access many popular addons from the home screen. Talking of addons, the build features the best Kodi addons that are most popular currently. Xanax Kodi build is extremely popular and you will know why when you start using it.
