How Do I Open Figma Prototype on My Phone?

Figma has become one of the most popular tools for designing user interfaces for web and mobile apps. It is used by designers, developers, and product teams to create user interfaces quickly and collaboratively.

One of the great features of Figma is that it allows you to preview your designs in real-time on your mobile device. This means that you can quickly check how your design looks on a phone or tablet, without having to constantly export images and upload them to a simulator.

However, if you want to share your Figma prototypes with others and get feedback in real-time, it can be tricky to know how to open the prototype on their phones. In this article, we’ll explain how you can open a Figma prototype on a mobile device so that others can view and comment on your work.

Step 1: Open the project on Figma’s website or desktop app. Once you have opened the project, click the ‘Share Prototype’ button at the top right of the screen. This will open up a dialogue box with several options for sharing your prototype.

Step 2: Select ‘View Only’ from the drop-down menu at the top of the dialogue box. This will generate a link that allows anyone with access to view your prototype without being able to edit it. Copy this link as we will need it in step 4.

Step 3: Click ‘Enable Mobile View’ from the bottom left corner of this dialogue box. This will allow anyone who accesses your prototype link via their phone or tablet to view it in its native mobile format rather than desktop mode.

Step 4: Share this link via email or messaging service so that others can open it on their phones or tablets. When they click on this link they will be taken directly into their browser where they can view your Figma prototype in either desktop mode or mobile mode depending on their device settings.


Opening a Figma prototype on a mobile device is easy when you know how! All you need to do is open up the project in Figma, select ‘View Only’ from the drop-down menu when sharing, enable mobile view and then share the link via email or messaging service so that others can access it from their phones.
