What is Figma?
Figma is a vector graphics and prototype tool which is mostly used to make different types of UI, and UX for web-based desktop apps for macOS, Windows enabling additional offline features. Figma prototypes may be viewed and interacted with in real-time on mobile devices using the Figma mobile app for Android and iOS. Figma's feature set is geared toward user interface and user experience design, with a focus on real-time collaboration. It was launched in 2014 in the market by Adobe to make different user interfaces and User experiences screens to build mocks and ideas of the web or mobile applications that will be developed further. Basically, it can be said Figma gives an idea of the screen user experience to make that into the actual application form which in the website or mobile application.
What are the advantages of working in Figma for UI & UX?
Figma is fast and easy to use
In short, Figma is fast. Quickly upload, drag, zoom, download, edit... you can think of it. In the past three years, the team behind Figma has optimized their system to make it run 3 times faster. When you design, you need to let things move with you, without lag or dissonance. Figma is done. An Illustration of two people using laptops with a dotted connection shows how they can work remotely but together.
FIGMA can be connected to slack as well:
With Figma's Slack integration, you can receive notifications of all Figma comments directly in Slack. This is especially useful for remote teams because the information can be displayed in multiple locations. Designers can catch things faster, so they can work more efficiently. So when something interesting happens on your team's Slack channel, Figma's notifications can help you regain productivity.
FIGJAM: The best online whiteboard
It's not a music festival, but it's a new feature that takes remote teamwork to the next level. Figma is an online whiteboard (similar to Miro). Teams can use it simultaneously to brainstorm ideas, develop workflows, and plan design sprints. It is sufficient to use it directly with stakeholders for kick-off meetings. It's very intuitive and is included in the Figma subscription, and non-designers like it as well as their teammates.

FIGMA has the ability to build prototypes and animations
Say with us: No more tool switching. Creating micro-interactions, animations, and prototypes directly in Figma is incredibly easy. The era of moving from Sketch to In Vision or Principle is gone.

Figma enables embedded designs or prototypes on websites and apps
Just like magic, you can embed real-time Figma designs or prototypes anywhere for presentations, tutorials, courses, or other collaborative sessions. In addition, many tools such as Coda, Notion, Trello Jira, Dropbox, and Confluence now have Figma integration built-in, where links are automatically converted to embed.
FIGMA brings everyone on the team to the process
We did our best to the end: anyone can use it. Whether they're designers or marketing internships, Figma is designed to be used by everyone. Being web-based, anyone who knows the link can view the design in a browser. No software or apps are required. (If you like it, they have an app). Figma has built the ideal tool for designers, but in reality, it has built something more important. It's a way for non-designers to get involved in the design process.
Figma has its own advantages it has made and reduced the workload of a developer as well. Rather than customizing the mobile application screen again and again. The screen can be defined in Figma on how to make it before the implementation phase.
