Anyone else having trouble with the preview auto-detecting the phone layout? I can only see the original layout, in both portrait and landscape. Not seeing the special phone layout. Can see it in PBI Desktop, but not on my Windows 8 phone after publishing.
Also first time I opened it in Edge, Edge crashed. Is this preview just too buggy to work correctly outside of the lab?

>>Not seeing the special phone layout
What do you mean the special phone layout ? Can you share some detail content for this issue?
If it means the autofit feature, I test on windows phone 10 without any issue.

Device is a Microsoft Lumia 735 running Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2
PowerBI Verison is the March release containing the Phone View preview: Version: 2.44.4675.521 64-bit (March 2017)
There is no issue with publishing the report to the PowerBI service. The issue is that the PowerBI service is failing to detect and render the Phone View of the report.
Steps to recreate are quite simple.
(1) open existing report in PowerBI Desktop.
(2) Click the menu option titled Phone Layout (in the View menu)
(3) Drag and drop existing report elements to create the Phone Layout.
(4) Save the modifed Report in PowerBI Desktop
(5) Publish the modified report to the PowerBI Service
(6) Access the report using my Windows Phone
(7) PowerBI Service fails to detect the new Phone Layout and renders the existing report using the original layout.
