Specto Vs Exodus
Specto Fork was released initially to compete with Kodi add-ons like Exodus and add-ons similar to the ones that host streams for various movies and TV shows for free. However, with time Exodus achieved great fame and became an all-time popular add-on. One of the major reasons behind it being the consistent hard-work of the Exodus developers that updates the add-on regularly. This resilient team thus made sure that the users do not have any problem while streaming the add-on.
On the other hand, Specto Fork lacked in the removal of bad links, and also failed to update the add-on on a regular basis. However, there are certain occasions where the add-on has proved to be successful. But still, it didn’t offer the same value s Exodus, thus being a weak competitor against Exodus.
Even though Exodus has strong features as compared to Specto Fork, the latter has more chances of survival. After the rise of Covenant, there are high chances of Exodus going down.
Some of the users don’t consider Specto Fork as a stable Kodi addon due to its inconsistent run. But one cannot agree less to the fact that no other Kodi add-on can match the features. It offers features similar to Covenant and exodus add-on, with some issues.
But as nothing is perfect in this world, we would recommend Specto Kodi Addon for free streaming of movies and TV shows. So, guys, we hope that this guide to install Specto add-on on Kodi was helpful to you. In case of any doubts and issues while installing, use the comment section.
