Live XD preview On Android
Live preview is only on iOs.
We do have an Android version of the XD application – you should be able to find it in the Google Play store. https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/system-requirements.html?promoid=65FN7WF2&mv=other
This is still not possible and is not feature complete. Added a new ticket to see if they can re-open this.

Why has this been marked as "Feature Completed" when it's not working? Your official web page says the following:
If your device is running Adobe XD on Windows 10, real-time preview through USB is not supported on Android."

We are trying to set up multiple Android test devices on windows 10.
We have Installed USB drivers for the phones.
We have set up the phones to MTP connection.
The Adobe XD mobile app is not connecting, showing anything.
The devices are OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 2.
They meet the requirements (Open GL ES 2.0, with Android 6.0)
What are we missing? Can you help me with this?
Yeah, live preview is still not working when using XD on a computer with Windows as the OS connected to an Android phone via USB.
The feature is not complete.
This despite the fact that the XD for Android app used to say that this feature was limited to iOS, but now just says to connect your phone to your computer via USB...

Windows+adobe XD+android phone= NO LIVE PREVIEW!!! Just a preview from cloud documents if you install XD app on your android phone. Why? And when will be available not just on iPhone this feature?

Still no news on this. Cloud preview, save, update, download xd document is way too slow.
no it's not completed. Live preview is mac only.

That's a problem with live view for Android as it is a "mac only" feature!! and other than that there is a problem syncing prototypes from the cloud: "FONTS" as they are not available like live preview and it makes it not a very good choice for prototyping as other apps and solutions already fixed that!
Adobe please get out of you typekit bureaucracy! just find a way to view the fonts right on prototypes! not all your businesses should be relied on each other!

Hi Elaine, I believe that this Feature Request was made with regards of getting the live USB preview feature from the iOS app onto the Android version of Xd.
If you see the XD for iOS and Android FAQ you'll see the following item: "Edit your design using XD on the desktop and see them reflected in real time on mobile devices connected through USB (available only on Adobe XD for macOS)."
Currently in the Google Play Store the description of the app also says "Eliminate the guesswork by previewing your Adobe XD designs complete with transitions on native devices, in real time via USB (macOS only) or by loading them from Creative Cloud Files."
So again, I believe this is what Guna meant.
Elanie, I'm guessing that this feature request was regarding "Live Preview like on iOS" so via a USB cable. I think for many designers the need of moving the file to Adobe Cloud for the sake of having the live preview is not really an option. I for example store all my design files in an odrive folder on my machine, which is live-syncing everything to my Google Drive, where the rest of the team can access the files via shared folders and at the same time Cloud HQ is making a live backup of my Google Drive Files to my One Drive and to another Google Drive. I would consider switching to the Adobe Cloud only if Adobe was offering unlimited storage with the CC subscription, like Google does for their G Suite.
