Xonfluence, developed to be an extended mod of Confluence skin, is a reminiscent Kodi skin that features old Jarvis look, fancy splash screen, ease of use and practical home items and widgets. It’s fully compatible with, and working nicely on the latest Kodi Leia so we suggest you give it a try. You can learn from this guide on how to install and Xonfluence skin on Kodi.

Confluence is the default skin for version Kodi 9.11 and above and has various great mods. Xonfluence is one of the best received Confluence forks, with different versions respectively compatible with Isengard (Kodi 15.x), Jarvis (Kodi 16.x), Krypton (Kodi 17.x) and Leia (Kodi 18.x). But please note that Xonfluence skin Isengard and Jarvis versions are discontinued.
If you’re into old-fashioned Kodi appearance, horizontally arranged home menu items and submenus but also looking for extensive use of shortcuts and widgets, Xonfluence skin is the one that you should totally try out. It keeps the classic Kodi look but is added with many new practical features that the old Confluence skin doesn’t offer.
As one of few old-school Kodi skin options, Xonfluence has a place on WonderFox Best Kodi Skins in 2021, on this list you can find more impressive Kodi skin choices.
