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)
At a minimum, you need to implement a CMS engine equivalent to a web browser.
Hope to update and fixed soon!
It's really a terrible problem!!
Terrible to work with!

A Complete nightmare please fix this!! @AdobeXD
We need this asap, newer Macs display higher/wide range of colors and this makes it look too saturated in XD due to lack of color management. This problem will probably affect more and more people until it's fixed.
Today I switched from the old iMac 2012 to new iMac Retina 2019.
Now I also got this Problem! Unable to work with correct colors in Xd. Terrible!
I'm facing a lot in color difference while export in any formate (including the final prototype). PFA. When I push the final prototype to client-side getting a lot much feedback regarding the color difference. Kindly consider this as a high priority to fix or I might lose my clients.
This is very very huge problem. Do something!!!

This is such a critical issue and why hasn't it been solved???? Seriously??
I can't believe this ............. what a bug!!!! I am absolutely disappointed from Adobe
when???? when???????? Can't work
It's been three years and this isn't fixed yet? This is not a minor issue, it's a blocker. I cannot use XD because of this in a professional context. I wish the XD team could get their priorities straight.
What the heck... adding hours to my work week!

Why it is not implemented yet? Adobe xd or evangelists don't even answer on twitter for pointing that issue out.
Why Adobe doesn't fix this critical problem?

This is kinda insane this issue still exist. I like Adobe XD but I can't use XD going forward at all with a majority of my projects with my team. I'm almost at lost for words.

Adobe. This is insane that you don't listen to your users. As a design company, I would like to believe that color managment is at the top of your list. Users are clearly asking for it, stop worrying about new features right now and implement captain obvious features, please. Nothing is production-ready until you implement this.
Focusing on the 500+ users that want this could actually make professionals happy, then they would share the kind word that adobe started to listen to their users more, and so on and on and on.
Instead, we are dazzled with marketing, we have confidence, we implement our products, then we're let down by discovering that obvious features do not exist. We then get mad and we tell all our friends how bad of a company adobe is.

Hey guys, instead of voting other feature requests, ask your friends to vote this! Adobe must listen to the users!

We just noticed the same, and we're devastated. We've been designing this whole platform in XD, and our designers have developed the colour scheme in there, and then sending over the HEX codes to the system developers. Now on the launching day we realize the system looks dull and doesn't match the colours the Designers have been working with in XD. So turns out that yes, in fact XD has been fooling us all along and showing us fake colours! This will now result in so many more hours and cost for the developers to change everything again. This is a DISASTER Adobe! Seriously! Without correct colours the program is totally useless.
