Last Updated on 1 year by Amelia Johansson

Looking for the best Kodi build that is not only light in size but also offers many Addons and a cool user interface? If yes then don’t forget to read this guide till the end in which I will show you how to install Xanax Kodi build on Firestick with complete steps including screenshots.

This is the alternative to the most famous build Durex which was used by thousands of FireTV users. But somehow they discontinued the project and now we have this awesome Build. It is even better than the Durex as it has a smaller size that provides more Addons as compared to the old ones.

What Is Xanax Build?


Xanax is the light in size build for Kodi that comes with 40+ different Addons and has an amazing user interface. In Xanax, you will get Addons that contain the latest and old movies, TV shows, Live TV Channels, and even some sports channels as well. However it also completely changed the user interface from the old to the new and more customized design which is even easier than the stock.

It is also considered as the alternative to Durex which was once the most used build. However, it is far better than it as it is around 300 MBs and provides IPTV, Kid’s TV Shows, Movies, etc. You will also get the Best Addons like Exodus Redux, The Maverick, The Magic Dragon, JoyRide, Gen X, and 46 others.

Instead of this, you will get some other skins as well that can be changed accordingly so if you don’t like the original skin of Xanax simply change it to anyone that you want. The best part that I love about this build is the compatibility of Real-Debrid so we can watch movies without On buffering issues on firestick.
