Show custom fonts on mobile
The only fonts we are able to view in the Android App of Adobe XD are the ones that are either Adobe Fonts or Google fonts.
There's no option to add and view custom fonts which sometimes makes viewing prototype on mobile kinda useless.
Please add fonts support in Android App

Oh, please... No abling custom fonts import ruins everything... Is it so difficult to add this feature...? :(

Yeah, I've been wondering about that for years already.
Only possibility was opening the file in live preview which actually installs the font so you can also use it without live preview but now live preview isn't available for Windows for what reason ever...
There is a huge list of Unicode fonts that you can use: https://www.madeintext.com/fancy-text-generator/
But I agree with your point having an option to use the custom font or own created font will be a good addition.

They have a few Google fonts, but it would be nice if the app incorporated all Google fonts in the app. When you can't https://thexploretech.com/dns-server-not-responding/ the font you used in your prototype on your phone.
How in the world is this not fixed yet? How are we supposed to properly preview our work or show our clients if we don't have the option to see our custom fonts on the proper platform? Ridiculous.

Such a disappointment! It makes the versatile application totally pointless. Please Adobe!
Custom text styles are obvious on the web watcher, it should be feasible to make them noticeable on the portable application.
How would you need us to disclose that to our customers?
Would it be advisable for me to change over all my artboards to JPEG? (haha)
This ought to be the most mentioned highlight. No, it ought to be the most mentioned bug fix.https://waterfilterly.com/best-ceramic-water-filter/
My problem is, that i am unable to install my company's font on my phone, so whenever I test my prototypes via the Adobe XD app, I get shown a default font.
Since this font has a totally different height than my company's font, i cannot see, what my designs would look like on a phone and how/if the interactions work. The font (FuturaT) is also not availabe in Adobe fonts.
Therefore, I would love it, if the font selected during prototyping on my laptop is shown in the preview in the XD app, regardless of whether or not it is installed on my phone or Adobe Fonts.
without this, I am unable to use the Adobe XD app, because i will not change every single font to something more similar to my company's font just to look at it and interact with it on my phone.
I hope you understand, what I mean.
Such a frustration! It makes the mobile app completely useless. Come on Adobe!
Custom fonts are visible on the web viewer, it must be possible to make them visible on the mobile app.
How do you want us to explain that to our clients?
Should I convert all my artboards to JPEG? (lol)
This should be the most requested feature. No, it should be the most requested bug fix.
I can't believe there's only 33 votes for this request :-(

We need this feature so badly + live preview like iOS, along with the current feature of the cloud save.

Prototyping without adding custom font is very useless. we have to look at other solutions
Really don't understand why this feature request isn't getting more votes.
It's one of the key functionalities to be able to preview your prototypes on actual devices. Without the support for custom fonts it's super useless. The larger portion of our projects do not use Adobe fonts or Google fonts.
I also find it kind of cheeky that Adobe doesn't cleary admit this. I've been send running around in circles by their support. They are suggesting some obscure third party apps to to get the custom fonts on your device, none of which worked.
This is simply not good enough. Unless this gets implemented we're staying with Figma/Sketch.

One of which is SF PRO and I get annoyed with the "fonts missing" alert while checking on the mobile device!
They have a few Google fonts, but it would be nice if the app incorporated all Google fonts in the app. When you can't view the font you used in your prototype on your phone, it takes away from your design when showing it to stakeholders.
