Some new features have been added to Kodi 18 Leia, which I have listed below in this blog post.
If you have Kodi 17 Krypton installed on your device then no need to rush as Kodi 17 is still working fine and some of the Kodi Addons or Builds might not be compatible with Kodi 18 Leia.
But there are many other Addons and Builds available for Kodi 18 Leia that you can install and watch the content that you may be looking for.
You might also face some compatibility issues with the different operating systems like Android versions below V5 are not compatible with Kodi 18.
The installation process of Addons on Kodi 18 is almost the same as that of Kodi 17 with a few screen changes and another step to verify the dependencies that will be installed.
