A Google Groups page is available as a forum for members of the Xyce community to ask questions and discuss any topic related to Xyce, including installation, use and development. The Sandia Xyce developers are active participants in the forum, but the Google Groups site exists as an independent entity from the official Xyce home page at Sandia National Laboratories.

In 2012, a class on the use of Xyce was presented to an audience of electrical designers at Sandia National Laboratories. A recording of that class can be viewed in Part 1 and Part 2:
- Using the Xyce Parallel Electronic Simulator, Part 1
- Using the Xyce Parallel Electronic Simulator, Part 2
Instructions on adding a new device model to Xyce using Verilog-A are available on the Tutorial page.
