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)
XD 1.2 (1300)
XD on windows 0.6.8.6
Another update for you all – we now support tethered iOS. For Android, you can open cloud documents using the XD mobile application.
XD document synched and opened from creative cloud on the iphone. but changes done on xd does not reflect realtime on the phone.
I know the tethering option is available for Mac and that the XD team is likely working on a windows version, but just wanted to highlight how desperately important it is for us to have that. Without it, I have to keep saving the XD file, which then gets uploaded to the cc cloud and then refresh my device to see the changes. I'm on a really slow internet connection, so hence the reason USB would be greatly appreciated if it came sooner rather than later. Thank you!

This feature is already live on the Mac version. Currently, the only way to preview on the phone is by uploading the file to the Creative Cloud. (making it very tedious when you need to check minor details)

Hi, this would be fantastic! It's already on Mac and the only way to preview is by uploading the files to cc cloud

Can we get some feedback about where this is in the priority list? As mentioned earlier this is pretty big for mobile design. Right now we have to do an awkward workaround where we save the XD files in our CC Cloud files to be able to load them from the XD app on our phones.
Should I assume it's not even in production?
After layers and gradients it should be next functionality to implement, as it's (I think) fairly important feature for mobile design/testing.
No device menu appears even the device is connected via USB.
The Usb-cable support is need in the Win version badly. There are quite a few steps to preview and test apps on phones/tablets right now.
Today one need to open project from Creative cloud within app. No live updates even tho project is saved in CC.
Need to reopen the file.
