Live Preview on Android Devices will be much helpful as not everyone may like to use an ios device as their daily driver os maybe they can't afford it, the android live preview will help so many designers to design better and efficient. It's been a really long time since android users are waiting for live preview on their device so please understand our concern at bringing live preview for android. Thank You.
If in 2020, XD won't be able to live preview on Windows 10 via android phones. I will then purchase apple's device and use sketch. For all designers, this feature is important, and it should be easy to use.

Why have a feature when it is only hardware / os specific when 90% of the world uses Android...

Any updates on this? Last admin comment is more than one year old now, so maybe there has been some progress? Any news from Microsoft?

So I have Windows machine and running XD on it, and can't see real-time update via USB on android screen. Now with XD mobile app, you have to every time go back than loading again screens and than you see something, but when you changing you can't see and it is time wasting, please add this extention in next update, it will be the best update of XD <3 thank you in davance <3

Figma is cool and getting more value in marketplaces like freelancer. xd is going down now just because of this. Similar as flash adobe hardly can make a perfect software lol
Estamos em 2020 e ainda temos que pedir a visualização para android/windows, tá complicado continuar com o XD.

You need to provide live view for android devices.
It's an incredibly long process to use this program without this rudimentary functionality.
If you do not create this feature within the next month, I will not continue using Xd and possibly not even Adobe.
This is a SIMPLE function, and should have been added a long time ago.
UNLESS... Apple has paid you to keep this key feature specific to Apple to hopefully assuage additional needing developers into buying their products.
Shame shame if this is the case...

Live Preview needed for Android/Win 10
Global mobile OS market share 11/19: Android 75%, iOS 23%. If adobe is not able to bring live preview on android devices with windows desk app i will consider switching to figma or invision.

Need this!!! Love XD and this would make it much better when working on mobile designs.
So here we are, just been trough the biggest XD update in the history of the project yet still no real-time preview through USB on W10 with any Android phone. What's that all about? We are many!!

fully updated XD app on iOS, usb tethered to a fully updated Windows 10 XD, try and do a live preview and get this....!!! oh cummon please!!!
It is not possible to do a live test of Adobe XD on Android via USB with windows 10. The real time update loop that's available for iphones should ideally extend to android as well.
There's another request regarding this "Live XD preview On Android" that was closed out as feature complete but it's not completed. You still cannot test in real time with USB.

Any updates on this topic? In the latest Windows update, we are even able to mirror and interact with the whole phone screen on Windows (Android). Would be cool to see that feature come to live on Windows so that we can start to use our Android phones for the design process instead of being forced to use an iOS device :)
I've had this option on XD mobile for years but it's never been working. The first year or so it said it was a Mac only feature on this very screen, but I haven't seen that disclaimer in a long time but still, when I have a Xd document open and connect my Android phone to my W10 PC nothing happens. I suggest Adobe just close the project for Windows and Android instead of having a menu option that doesn't work.
XD Ver. 22.214.171.124
XD mobile ver. 21.0.0 (22305)
Checked Play Store and I'm up to date on the mobile app according to them. I have allowed automatic updates for that app on my Samsung S7.
Please implement mobile preview on android by USB in windows app
