Plugins for Adobe XD

Learn how to add more capability to Adobe XD. Find the latest free plugins and automate repeat operations or parts of designer workflows that are tedious, complex, or repetitive.


Adobe XD features plugins and app-integrations from Adobe and third-party developers that enhance your design workflow by automating complex and repeat tasks, and enabling deep integrations with external tools and services. For example, if you want to use Google Maps, you can install by using a third-party plugin to get the app into your XD workspace. Check out this Adobe Community post to know more about using Google Maps in XD projects.

XD also supports external integrations such as Jira and in-app extensions to provide a complete solution for designers and stakeholders.
