Figma is a trusted and widely used tool for prototyping and collaborating on designs. It allows designers to easily create interactive mockups of their work, which can be shared with clients or colleagues to gather feedback and obtain approval. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps of viewing a Figma prototype.

Accessing a Shared Prototype

Figma prototypes are typically shared via a link. The creator of the prototype can generate this link from within Figma and then send it to you. Therefore, the first step to view a Figma prototype is to receive this link.

How to View the Prototype

Once you have the link, viewing the prototype is simple. Here are the steps:

  1. Open the link in a web browser. Figma prototypes are viewable in any modern browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.
  2. Wait for the prototype to load. Depending on the complexity of the design and your internet speed, this could take a moment.
  3. Once loaded, you can interact with the prototype. Click on different areas, buttons, links etc., to navigate through the design as if it were a real website or app.

You can also leave comments on the prototype. To do this, click on the comment icon () in the top right corner of the screen. This will open the comment panel where you can add your feedback.

Viewing Prototypes on Mobile

What if you need to view the Figma prototype on your mobile device? You can do this too, using Figma Mirror. You will need to install the Figma Mirror app on your device. Once installed, you can open the prototype link in your mobile browser which will then launch the Figma Mirror app. The prototype will display on your device and you can interact with it as you would on your desktop.


Figma is a powerful tool for design and prototyping, and viewing a Figma prototype is a straightforward and intuitive process. Now that you know how to do it, you can collaborate more efficiently with designers and provide valuable feedback on their prototypes. Happy viewing!
