How To Use Figma On Phone

As designers and developers, we frequently encounter situations where we need to work while on the move. Whether we’re traveling, queuing up, or temporarily away from our computers, being able to make swift modifications to our designs can be crucial. Thankfully, Figma, a widely-used vector graphics editor and prototyping tool, can be accessed from your mobile device. This article will guide you through using Figma on your phone.

Accessing Figma on Your Phone

Firstly, it’s important to note that Figma doesn’t yet have a dedicated mobile application. However, you can easily access Figma from your phone’s web browser. To do this:

  1. Open your phone’s web browser (such as Safari for iPhone users or Google Chrome for Android users).
  2. Type in in the search bar and hit enter.
  3. Log in to your Figma account.

Viewing Files in Figma

Once you’ve logged in to Figma on your phone, you can view your files in the ‘Recent’ tab. Simply click on the file you want to view and it will open in view mode.

Using Figma Mirror

One of the best options to use Figma on your phone is to download the Figma Mirror app. Figma Mirror is a mobile app that allows you to view your designs from the Figma desktop app live across all of your Android and iOS devices.

Here’s how you can set it up:

  1. Download the Figma Mirror app from the App Store or Google Play Store.
  2. Open the Figma desktop app or Figma in a web browser.
  3. Select the frame you want to preview.
  4. Open the Figma Mirror app on your phone.
  5. Log in to the same Figma account as your desktop app.
  6. The frame will display on your device. Any changes you make in the Figma editor will reflect in real-time on your device.


While you can view Figma files on your phone and use the Figma Mirror app, certain functionality is limited. You can’t create new files, nor can you edit existing ones. You also can’t participate in real-time collaboration or use Prototype mode.

Despite these limitations, being able to access and view Figma files on your phone can be incredibly useful for on-the-go design needs, testing, and presenting your work to others.


While we wait for a full-fledged Figma mobile app, the above tips can help you get the most out of Figma on your phone. Be it accessing your designs on a mobile browser or using the Figma Mirror app, you can remain productive and keep your work flowing wherever you are.
