Color Management (set color profiles)
XD should be a color managed application.
I'm not sure what the full context of color management is within the UI/UX industry is, or if it's something that many pay attention to, or if it's just left un-managed.
Currently a vast majority of designers are using high gamut displays to design. Our final output will however differ greatly without some proper color management implemented. If color managment is implemented, we can at least visually soft proof our design and colors to specific devices (ie: New iOS devices that support P3 color gamut), or older sRGB devices.
At the same time sRGB images used won't expand to the display's high color gamut, making them look over saturated.
(Currently using Windows Beta Version: 0.6.8.6)

Please for the love of god.
Please add this feature and WCAG Contrast Checker—very much needed in 2021.
It’s unprofessional to not have this option and to know how the design works on different devices. How to communicate with clients then?
please please please please!!!!
please add color management!
I honestly can't believe that this is still an issue. XD is great for making design, but it's basically useless when doing colorsensitive work that is sent to clients

it's been 4 years now since this issue has been reported. Thanks Adobe. Love paying for the monthly subscription all this time and still seeing the issue intact.
This is driving me nuts too. Please sort it out. Pretty please!!
When is this going to be sorted? I love Adobe XD but this bug is forcing me to finally look elsewhere for my main prototyping app. Please Adobe get this sorted.
add this asap it's a mess without it.
Yes please add this
Yes need need. It keeps me at Sketch for this
When importing a color corrected SRGB png, jpeg etc, it suddenly looks over satuarated in Adobe XD. This is onworkable and keeps me working with Sketch. Come on Adobe... you do better then this.
I've tried everything: importing an image, drag & dropping it, even opening Sketch files in the hope it would work. But sadly, not...
Here a quick example: to the left the imported image. To the right we see the png preview as it should be...
You guys keep adding on reasons to switch back to sketch again...
need need need
[SOLUTION] This is not an ideal solution but for people like me who are really dependent/used to the UI of XD and don't want to switch this could work.
I export the file from XD (it comes out dull), and then I drop that file into photoshop (looks brighter in the program) and export that as a jpg again, the colors come out right. Hope this helps at least temporarily!
I hope we get a real solution soon.
Colours in XD are annoyingly over-saturated. Need to be able to set sRGB as a profile !!!
I am shocked, that this is really still a problem we have to handle with! This is absolutely basic!

I had the same problem - it is the Chrome, not Adobe XD problem.
In Chrome try this link chrome://flags/forcecolorprofile and on Force Color Profile enable sRGB. Works for me even with Hardware acceleration turned on.
