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.

What are plugins?

Adobe XD features plugins and app-integrations from Adobe and third-party developers that enhances your design workflow by automating complex and repeat tasks, and enabling deep integrations with external tools and services. For example, if you have a need to use Google Maps, you can install and use a third-party plugin to bring them into your XD project. 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.
