Android Tethered (USB) Mobile Device Preview on Windows
- WIN 10 latest anniversary update.
- XD from appstore installed
- Connected via USB
- Opened XD
- Opened App on OS
- Nothing on the XD mobile
- No mobile icon on XD desktop top right corner
WIN 10 Pro / Anniversary update
Iphone 5 SE / latest iOS update (just right now)

Another update for you all – we now support tethered iOS. For Android, you can open cloud documents using the XD mobile application.
Many paying customers have been waiting for this feature for years. I would like to know when we can expect implementation.

Live preview not supported on Windows -> Android yet... 3 years after!!!! Moving to other app... 🙄🤦♂️
We can connect iOS devices to Windows using a USB cable and preview the design live but we can't do it on android. Why? We cant upload the whole design to the cloud for small changes and download it on phone every time. We should be able to connect our phones using a cable like iOS.

October 2021, still no sign of a feature that should have been implemented years ago.
Why is this still something that just does not work on Android Devices?
Martin Pernecky commented
Why do you need to rely on UWP USB support when you implemented co-editing which is lightning fast over internet. Can't you use this feature to also push newest data to the mobile (iOS, Android) apps for complete live preview?

It's been a long time I'm using Adobe products and I never feel any kind of restriction to make my design more creative and more conceptual but unfortunately now I am feeling very disappointed with you guys. Kindly enable this feature to see live preview on android device with PC in Adobe XD. Overall your product is really very good but this feature should be enable now.

It's been years people have been complaining about XD not allowing live preview on windows devices? Is there some kind of bias towards apple? What is it?
It's 2020; please provide this feature for Windows as well. Our productivity can be so much enhanced if we have this feature. Please listen to your community.
hi, I saw that this feature was already requested by users more than 2 years ago. But we still don't have it. Please allow live preview on the mobile xd app for android with windows 10. That feature can really increase the speed of our design decisions.
I also have an iphone, and when i connect the iphone and see that live preview, it makes designing for the phone way more intuitive.
Just to make it clear, we still don't have live preview for android. It only works with ios.
I would love to see this feature implemented for Windows+Android. Not only are loading cloud documents each time slow and animations choppy, but custom fonts can't be displayed using cloud documents if they aren't in Adobe Fonts. This means there's no good way to preview anything designed with custom fonts, and designs look terrible if the fonts we chose are replaced.
At this point, it's silly to think that designing for Android is actually easier if you have an iPhone to plug into your Windows PC. Please, please implement live preview on Android.
I would love to see live preview on android devices too cause while accessing the files from the cloud makes the animations laggy and choppy.
Hope you guys implement it soon
Let's get this Live Preview working on PC Windows and Android mobile devices already!!! It's freakin September 2020~!
live preview does not work from laptop with windows 10 on android device
