Hi all, I am new user on Adobe Xd, I have a question is can Adobe Xd live preview on Mobile Android ? Because my phone is Android and I am design UI mobile so if I can see live preview on mobile i will help me a lot of things. I try to connect but seem likes not working (connect via USB cable function like in apps said) -- I choose type connection is PTP via USB (the last function is Transfer file or Charging phone).

Here is my info :

- Adobe Xd on Windows ver : 35.1.12.5 (Starter)

Window 10

- Adobe Xd on my Android mobile ver : 35.0.0 (37048)

Android 10 QKQ1.191014.001

Phone Xiaomi Redmi 8 / MIUI Global 11.0.3 Stable 11.0.3(QCNMIXM)

I attachments some images for clear information.

If you have solution, please tell me. Thank you for read my post.

Adobe xd doesn't support live preview for window to android , you will need to save the file to cloud and then see it in "Adobe XD" android app , i made a custom plugin for myself for a real live preview if you want it i can give it to ya

Sure, can you wait ,one or two days i'll improve the code so it will be more reliable for public use , currently it just shows a image of the selected frame in the browser and you can refresh it instantly by pressing the hot key , i was using it so i can see the typical user experience , i ll change it so its more functional and you can interact with it

Steps To Use my Android Live Preview:

Download the Plugin File here

Double click on it
Install is Locally in Creative Cloud

mannu246165083wnm_0-1654847322318.png

Now Download this application from here (note : this is built by me its secure!)

When you want to do the live preview open the "Live Preview.exe" file and wait for it to show this:

Also Allow This:

mannu246165083wnm_2-1654847507723.png

Now Make Sure Your Android Device (or any Other Device that can access browser) is Connected to Your pc
on the same Network like its both are connected to same Wifi or Pc Is connected to Other Device's hotspot

this program doen't require Internet connection they both just need to be on the same network

now open the Browser on your Android Phone and type this :

If you aren't selecting any Artboard when you press "Ctrl+Shift+W" It will Refresh it to the last Artboard you Selected

Note:
If this doesn't work please make sure that adobe xd have premission to access the internet in firewall in Control Panel  : "Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Defender Firewall\Allowed apps"

Wow, thank you. I follow your step and it's work!!! But the preview is not same as on mobile like this.

JamesTn_0-1654853427473.png

The artboard size is 360x1098 px, my screen phone is 1080x2400 px. It look smaller, then I adjust the artboard size same 1080x2400 is look good, some image is not load too. I think you can improve your tool make look better. Thanks again!!!
