Adobe XD, also called as the Experience Design is in its early stages as far as Windows are concerned. In its present stage, the app does not have many features. For example, when you are designing, the program does not provide you the possibility to preview your prototype on your mobile. Mac users have access to this feature, while Windows users do not have it. However, there is an app to rely on. Adobe XD mobile app makes it possible to preview the prototype after you have uploaded it. Though it does not happen in real time, it is still a handy feature to check how the prototype you designed works on your phone after you will upload it. Here is a step by step process of how to do it.
Download the Adobe XD App
There are two versions of the Adobe XD app one for android and the other for iOS. Locate it on the internet, download it and install it.
Locate the assets folder
- You must now open the creative cloud’s desktop app and click on the middle Assets tab.
- Click on the Open Folder button, and you will see the assets folder opening in the explorer.
- Save the folder path. Usually, this will be C:\Users\yourusername\Creative Cloud Files
Save XD files in assets folder
Adobe XD lets you save your files in the path you have copied. The assets you saved in this folder will be automatically uploaded in the same way as it happens in Dropbox.
Open the Adobe XD mobile app

Within a short time, you can connect your phone with your PC using a USB and see the Adobe XD App automatically displaying the prototype you are working on at present. Till you land on this feature following the updates, use the app mentioned above to do the job for you.
