Yes. The latest previewed XD document is cached on your mobile device, so you can unplug the USB and continue working on the previewed prototype. When relaunching the XD app, switch to Live Preview and see the latest prototype.
Large documents take some time to cache after unplugging. If you are previewing a large document and unplug your phone, killing the XD app right away prevents it from properly caching the document. To preview this document later, do not kill the app immediately.
Yes. If you save your XD documents to Creative Cloud, you can download them for viewing later when offline.
Open Adobe XD on your mobile device.
In the XD Documents section, find the document you want to use offline and tap the ellipses (...) icon.
Enable the Available Offline option.
This option downloads the file locally and makes it accessible without an Internet connection.
When viewing a document with many artboards, after a triple tap, choose Browse Artboards to see all artboards as thumbnails for quick access. You can also search by artboard name to filter the results. Search and tap on the artboard you want to view.
From any screen, use triple tap and choose Share this Screen as Image. Adobe XD on mobile creates an image and calls the share sheet on your device, so that you can share the image using any sharing service.
Guiding the user with hotspot hints can be beneficial when testing a prototype. After using the triple tap, you can activate and deactivate hotspot hints. If hotspots are enabled, when the user taps on a non-interactive area, all the interactive areas (like buttons) are highlighted in blue, to show the areas that can be tapped.

Make sure that your Android device is set to transfer data through the USB port, not transfer power (charging mode). To do so, set "USB configuration" on your device to "MTP (Media Transfer Protocol)" using the following steps:
Connect your phone to the computer using a USB cable that transfers data; some USB cables only charge your phone.
On your Android device, tap the topmost part of the screen and slide down to open the notification panel.
Tap Connected as a media device or Connected as a Camera.
Select Media device (MTP).
You can change the setting at a later point in time by opening Settings > Developer Options (see how to enable Developer Options) > Networking > Select USB Configuration > MTP (Media Transfer Protocol).
