Adobe XD is a vector-based tool for designing and prototyping user experiences for web and mobile apps. Switch easily from wire framing, visual design, interaction design, prototyping, previewing, and sharing, all in one powerful tool.
XD is made for all types of creators - UX/UI designers, interaction designers, experience designers, product designers, web designers, app designers, visual designers, entrepreneurs, and more.
The February 2019 release of XD has the following enhancements to existing features:
Adobe XD introduces the ability to add narration using your microphone when you record a desktop preview interaction. As you click through, any voice narration is also included with the recording. This is especially useful for a remote client application walkthrough without being physically present with a client or stakeholder.
While this feature has been accessible to Windows users through an OS-level control in Gamecenter, this new functionality extends to Mac users.
For more information on how to record voice interactions and add them to your narration, see Add a voice narration to a prototype.
Adobe XD introduces a shortcut for the eyedropper that makes it easier to change object colors. Select the object or group of objects that you'd like to change the color of, and use i on the keyboard to load the eyedropper cursor and select any color on the design canvas to modify the color of an object. The color picker allows you to select absolute colors only; you cannot use the tool to select linear or radial gradients.
For more information on how to use the eyedropper tool shortcut, see Keyboard shortcuts in XD.
When accessing XD published prototypes or design specs on the web, you have a unified experience to access the utility navigation controls. This ensures a unified experience when you interact with other Adobe web applications.

To improve the discoverability and usage of the Share feature and its workflows, XD provides the following options to share a prototype.
For more information, see Share embed designs and prototypes.
With Auto-animate in Adobe XD, you're able to create prototypes with immersive animated transitions that are fully functional and interactive on devices and view them in the preview window as well as your web browser.
Now, you can view animation in prototypes and the animation property values in design specs on a supported web browser, which should make it easier to showcase your designs to stakeholders and other partners.
For more information, see Create prototypes with auto-animate and Supported and un-supported properties for auto-animate in XD artboard transitions.
Voice now supports all Adobe XD languages for both commands and speech playback. Whether you're designing for users that speak English, French, German, Korean, or Japanese, you're able to prototype voice experiences in their native language, with support for more languages in the future.
The latest release of XD also supports regional accents for voice commands, so for example, whether you're in the U.S. or the UK, Canada or Australia, you will be able to successfully prototype an effective, localized voice experience. For more information, see Voice design and prototyping in Adobe XD.
The view all comments feature in Adobe XD makes it much easier to manage stakeholder feedback in prototypes and design specs. You can now view all comments in a single list, and click an individual comment to go right to the affected artboard and reply, resolve, or delete comments.
