Power BI mobile optimized reports now generally available for phones

Microsoft has announced that Power BI mobile phone reports are now generally available. With this new release, Power BI Desktop users can now tailor a portrait view of their existing report for mobile users, but the company has also brought several improvements to both authoring and exploring phone reports:

  • It’s now possible to scroll on phone reports to see all data, which will also allow users to add more visualizations to their reports.
  • Microsoft has also added a new icon to identify phone reports, which will only appear after republishing a report that has been optimized for mobile.
  • iOS and Android users can now use a pull to refresh gesture to update a report with the latest data, while a refresh button has been added for Windows 10 Mobile
  • iOS and Android users can also Share and annotate phone reports and visualizations right from the Power BI app
