    I can respect your position. As Product you need to constantly evaluate the value-add opp vs. the overhead (cost and time) to support and produce features. As designers we have to be familiar with device limitations and Alexa Show (or whatever device/generation) should be no different. The exercise that led me to report this issue was essentially exploratory despite presenting it as a design concept for a legit client. I've learned a lot through the exercise and appreciate your dialog. You guys are doing well and I for one appreciate the effort of the entire team.

    Thanks for the reply and information Mark. I think some of my disconnect also extends to the "previewing" a prototype inside XD. You can include a space for the voice playback and preview the experience inside XD just fine.

    Suggestion:
    XD previewing should mimic device rules.

    Dependencies:
    Adobe XD would need user to identify targeted device
    Adoeb XD would need to stay current with device rules from one generation release to the next

    On a side note:
    I've noticed tween animations do not display on the Alexa Show. Is this an intentional limitation on the device itself, a bug or an XD feature to be released later on?

    Thanks again Mark.

    @jensche Use XD's auto animate capability... it is quite nice:

    @Jorge... yes. this would be the correct way to talk around a "prototype". The only argument I can see so far for video is if you're building an Alexa Skill on the Alexa Show device. Even still, prototyping should not be directly reliant on a video playing.

    @Dan... whining over playing video inside of a prototype is an absolute edge case need. If Adobe customers are jumping up and down over an edge case that's a clear sign Adobe is doing a good job in other areas. Hats off to Adobe. I wish we could downgrade a feature request.... I'd do it for this one. I also wish the animated gif and video were separate feature requests. I'd vote yes on animated gif and no on video...

    Ehh... I'm struggling with some of the comments on this feature. "Playing a video" is not an essential part of prototyping! I can appreciate the need to include a little motion here and there (in the form of an animated gif) to aide in expressing some micro interactions, etc. but playing a video in a prototype is a bit over the top in my opinion.

    As the XD team considers the viability of this feature request, I would strongly urge them to take a look at the standards (geometric shapes and their definitions of use) as set by Jesse James Garrett and his visual vocabulary.

    http://www.jjg.net/ia/visvocab/

    Axure has a native "Flow" library that contains JJG's shapes library (+ others). Axure's "Flow/Connector" mode allows the author to create flow models (IA) whereby shapes can be drug around the stage as necessary and without breaking connector paths.

    It would be great to see XD's take on this feature... but please... there's no reason to create a whole new definition of how geometric shapes should be used to articulate a flow... that work has been done already by Jesse.
