You can now open reports on your phone with the Power BI app

Microsoft has released an update for the Power BI apps on Windows 10 Mobile, allowing users of said apps to open up reports on their smartphone. Hitting a tile in focus mode and choosing "open report" will see the app load data in landscape mode, ready for analysis.

As well as simply gazing at the report on-screen, it's also possible for businesses and enterprise customers to interact with the data by touching on a value to cross-filter, slice and even highlight other related visualizations on a single page. Grab the update from the Windows Store and start interacting with data on the move with Power BI.

  • Make a version for windows phone 8.1 too
  • Yeah... Definitely need one for WP 8.1
  • People, WP 8.1 is no longer supported :) jump to W10M ASAP :-)
  • Sorry without official version of windows 10 OS for mobile, have not any intention to enter in the insider program..... And we are asking because there is not a single announcement for official windows 10 OS for mobile....So I hope in the meantime they can provide a version of this app for windows phone 8.1 too......
  • Windows 10 Mobile is oficial since 950 and 950 XL
  • I'm sorry, for once I actually agree with the "isn't official yet" people. This isn't about bugs, this isn't about beta. Until Windows 10 is pushed to current 8.1 phones OTA, then it isn't official. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I agree with Coleslaw.
  • That's like saying marshmallow wasn't official cause the Nexus 6P and 5X got it first.
  • Jump to W10M? yuck. I jumped to Android.  
  • U mirin brah?

  • 7.5.....nvr

  • What does this app do?

  • It's amazing. I love this app. Needs Q&A support though!
