Hello,

 

Is Adobe Fresco coming to Android? If it is, are there any release dates yet or perhaps even a beta tester program?

Hi prubini87,

 

Thanks for your interest in Fresco. As of now Fresco is only available for iPad but we're working on developing the app for other platforms and devices. I'll definitely pass on your feedback to the product team. 

Stay tuned for more updates!

 

Regards,

Sheena

Hi,
This is getting ridiculous. You now have better devices for digital drawing on the go than iPhone in the form of Foldables. With the Z Fold series, you can even get a pressure-sensitive stylus.


Samsung tablets in the S-series come with a stylus in the box. Which are unique compared to the (cursing removed) pencil Apple tries to pawn off.


The first time I asked for Fresco on Android was in 2019. We are now almost five years further. Android hardware is objectively more capable of drawing on the go than ever. And yet, not a peep by Adobe. What (cursing removed) are you doing right now?
Suppose Fresco for Android isn't a thing by the end of 2024. I'm just going to quit Adobe products. I'll replace the whole (cursing removed) suite, and Ill make (cursing removed) sure I'll describe it so others can follow my example as painlessly as possible.

The reason why it hasn't came out yet is due to the extremely fragmented nature of Android. Fresco came to iPad first, because iPadOS is consistent across the board, and almost all devices are running the same version of the software. Windows came next, it took a little longer and isn't available to all Windows devices due to various differences in hardware and capabilities. But, unless you have some madman still running Windows XP, most are running a relatively recent version of the software. But even then, all the features aren't available. I briefly had an Wacom Mobile Studio Pro and Live brushes wouldn't work until I updated the graphics driver and even after that, it was extremely limited.  Android is the freakin Wild West. I mean no offense to those who swear by Androids, but you have devices with capabilities all across the board and so many of them are not running consistent versions of the OS, because every manufacturer wants to adopt Android to their version of what they want for the OS, and what version is never consistent. It makes it extraordinarily difficult to develop. They want to release a product that is without bugs and trying to build for Android makes it hard, because what's bug free in the Z-Fold might be buggy AF on a Galaxy. And even if they release it without bugs, you might be without features.  No offense to Android users, but it's a common thread I've heard other developers say as to why they skipped Android, is because it's too hard to develop and make it usable across all devices

That might all be true. But at the price that is being paid for a subscription it should be very possible. Esspecially because they would be far from the first. Also they litterally disproved your hypotheses themselves by releasing Premiere Rush on Android, which I also use. That app was not available across the board at first. It is right now.

Another point, the Android space might be fragmented, like the Windows space. However there are only a few kings in the Android space. When you build for Samsung S-series phones/tablets and Z-series and the Google Pixel series you are hitting over 80% of the potential Adobe Android user base.

The Android market has consolidated so much the last few years, it isnt that bad anymore. Long term support is here now too.

Honestly, your argument is about 5 years old (abuse removed).

By @HerveMaas

 

This is a user-to-user forum where we try to assist those who have questions about how to use the Adobe apps. 

 

The product developers for Adobe Fresco use a different website called UserVoice for feedback. If you want to make your feelings known to the developers instead of to volunteers who do not work for Adobe, you can do so at this link:

Well it obvious Adobe as a company doesn't [cursing removed] for their Android users and considers it's non-apple clientele second rate. So the only rational thing I can do is give the community and Adobe community manager my farewell. I won't be treated as a second rate customer while paying a ridiculous monthly fee. I'm moving to alternatives as of last week. I am completely done with Adobe.

 

Have a good life, and if Adobe ever decides to change it's annoying way of working I might consider a comeback. But honestly the way things are now. I don't expect it to be likely.

 

People that want to know my current suite and want to give it a go. Just Google my name and you will probably find a profile to get in contact with me.

Probably not. They're obviously in bed with Apple and don't care that some of their users use Android devices. Alienate more than 50% of their customer base regarding mobile apps is a business strategy I don't envy. I'm planning on ditching ALL Adobe products because of this.

All I know is that I used Sketch and Draw on multiple android devices for years with no problems. Adobe then withdrew support for those apps and encouraged me to get/stay tuned for an app that does not exist on my OS.

5 years later, nothing. 

5 years later and it's still too difficult for them to "build" a functional app?  Sorry, I don't buy it.

You know the Z Fold is part of the Galaxy line, right? And Google has worked pretty hard with the various hardware manufacturers to make sure Android is consistent across devices, most differences are aesthetic or organizational these days and most of the major players are pretty good with updates generally. So, the "hard to develop for" argument is incredibly dated and does not hold water in 2024. Additionally, hardware wise, it doesn't take much research to know which tablets make the most sense for creative purposes. Even more so than with PCs. Especially with folks like Brad Colbow specialising on reviewing things as creative professionals. Hell, if you want to make it extra easy, focus on recent Samsung devices specifically at first(As Celsys did with Clip Studio) and you're good with most of the recent generations as the S-Pen, which comes in the box(unlike the Apple Pencil), uses Wacom's EMR protocol and other creative software like Clip Studio and Nomad work perfectly. There is no excuse to not support Android at this point beyond being so wrapped up in the Apple ecosystem you haven't even looked at an Android device since 2010.

Hello everybody,

 

why does nobody if fresco will even come out for Android. What is wrong with your communication? I don't get it. I just want to know if I need to buy a new device, or if I just need to wait a little longer.

I'm a customer that also has customers. Please give us a more valid answer...

These forums are generally responded to by other users. We can't answer that question.

Adobe doesn't generally give a time frame for anything being released, that way they can work on it until it is ready.

Yes, definitely didn't make sense to drop both Sketch and Draw from Android without giving access to the app they were telling everyone to go to.

I get stuck in an endless sign-in loop when trying to follow the link you provided which just comes off as a sick joke at this point.

If Adobe doesn't want to be available to the Android portion of the mobile market, be honest about it, then give Android users a pro-rated discount to Creative Cloud for each app to which you deny us equal access that is available to Apple.

I'm sure they want the app to eventually come to Android tablets, but it's not an easy road. Fresco came out for iPadOS first, because most machines are on the current version, and its the same across all devices and they have very similar specs.  Windows came later, because specs of devices vary more and not all machines are currently running the current OS and things are more customizable.  Android is like the wild west. Depending on who is making the device, makers have their own versions of Android and what version is all over the place. I could see a version coming for the Galaxy Tab devices,  but I have no idea.

EXACTLY! We should not have to pay the same price if we don't actually have the option to use all the apps, personal preference for tech aside, if we just got or don't want to spend more money getting redundant tech just to use apps we're already paying for with our subscriptions, we shouldn't have to. So many people have commented how this negatively impacted their work flow, which impacts their income, which impacts if they can afford to splurge or more tech to use something they've been paying for for years! Do a survey how many people use apple/iPad and how many of them use procreate vs fresco (do not include anyone who works for/with/is a resident of Adobe) this is strictly PAYING CUSTOMERS
