What's new in Adobe XD?
Speaking of XD, whether you're a seasoned user, or someone with an interest in UX design, Adobe XD is the fastest way to design, prototype and share any user experience.
A leading authority in the world of web design, Adobe works closely with the UX community on the continued development of Adobe XD to maintain and enhance its already impressive toolset. Give Adobe XD a try for free today and see these key new features in all their glory:
- Voice triggers and speech - Interact with your prototypes like never before. Voice triggers and speech playback let you take users beyond the screen.
- Auto animate in the browser - First launched in October 2018, Auto-Animate is now accessible via web browsers, enabling users to view animations in prototypes and get the animation property values. This will make it easier for designers showcase their designs to stakeholders and other partners.
- Record interactions with audio - The desktop preview app now allows you to record your own voice along with any click-through interactions and share it as an MP4 file (Mac only).
- Voice language and accent support - Since January, 2019 XD allows users across a variety of countries and regions to access voice capabilities and work in multiple languages, including English, French,German, Korean or Japanese. XD also supports regional accents for voice commands with the ability to understand accents in various regions such as English-UK, French-Canadian or Australian. The update also includes a range of personalities and genders.
- View all comments across artboards - Adobe XD also enables you to view all screen comments across artboards. Users can now turn on the All Screen Comments feature in XD, which allows the ability to see all comments made on a prototype in a single list, making it easier than ever to collaborate and share feedback with colleagues and partners.
- Linked Symbols - It’s easier to stay on top of changes when symbols that are copied from one document and pasted into prototypes remain linked. Now when changes are made to the source file, you’ll be notified and have the option to accept updates.
