Import Videos & Animated GIFs to show in interactive preview
Support to import a video or animated GIFs to simulate animations or even playable video.
Hello everyone! I’m excited to announce that in XD 45 (released today 10/26), you will be able to import MP4 video into your XD designs.
To ensure platform compatibility and performance across desktop, web and mobile preview, your video must be:
under 15 MB
4K or under resolution.
Enjoy and we can’t wait to see what you create!
XD does not support Animated GIF, so if you are still looking for that, please start a separate request and vote on it.
Is there a release date? My organization has about 12 XD licenses which we are currently thinking about switching to Figma. Please give us an ETA on this.
Ben Holness commented
Can we have a release date for this please? Its been over 2 years now in the making. Long awaited and highly requested. We are considering switching to Figma as a result of this delay.
Graeme Palmer commented
Any chance of a release date for this feature, please?
2 years and nothing happened on XD supporting animated gifs, I understand videos could be a nightmare, but really, small lightweight animated gifs are quite old tech!
down arrow works properly in browser.....but when it comes to XD is not working...

Its been 2 years since this feature's development has started
This would be an outstanding feature. Unlike just about all the other comments on here, though, I'm not going to act outraged. I love AdobeXD and how far it's come... please implement this to take it to the next level 💪.
Marlo Straub commented
Hope this is coming out. Another reason to move to Figma if not.
So simple ... at least you'd think. Makes you wonder why they can't be bothered to do something that plainly so many people want. Probably just because they don't give a sh*t :(

11271 votes and 1620 comments and something so basic still not included
This is one of the most voted feature request for years. Is there any strategic reason for not adding it? If no, please add it...
In the company I currently support, we have switched to Figma. And I'm also starting to consider migrating if development continues so slowly.
again another update with such a nice number (40) and still no videos and gif support in sight... starts to feel like people will leaving the sinking ship soon...
why having this request board when there is no even a little slight of getting info then a "feature-started" and 2 years of nothingness afterwards - super disappointing.
This idea was suggested 5 years ago and they still haven't implemented it. LOL.
Seriously people why do you even bother waiting, just use Figma.
It's incredible to see how adobe has just put things under review or feature started with little to no feedback whatsoever.
Where these functionalities are already in place with other design software...
Can anyone explain that or does this just go into the backlog of things they don't care about?
Alejandro Orduz commented
Holly Molly,,, I can add an animated Gif in FIGMA and NOT in XD !!!!
hm..... seriously people what are you waiting for?
Could you tell us good solid reasons why not to hear 11,241 VOTES???
Chris Fryer (TEST) commented
need this asap seriously - such a simple request. If I can insert a GIF and Video into a simple application like PowerPoint - why am I not able to in Adobe XD. We are in 2021 are we not!?!?
Alejandro Orduz commented
What?.... is not implemented yet!!??
This is the only requirement to switch to XD!!!
How long can a backlog item takes? 5 years!!! Seriously?
We need this ! This isn't rocket science ...
Figma has this and it's incredible. I'd love for XD to have it too, Gifs are great for interactions (chats, product instruction prototypes, loaders, spinners, waiting animations, stickers for chatbots). Please add it soon!
