Can't install Power BI Desktop in my tablet?!

Hi,

 

As the titel says. I can download the Power BI app to view my dashboards, but I can not download Power BI desktop in my tablet. 

Is it not possible to use desktop in a tablet? Knowing a tablet is lighter then my laptop, its the reason I bought it but now I can't use it ;__; 

 

fyi I have the Samsung Galaxy tab S6 T860, 128 GB, 6GB RAM & I downloaded the exe file but I can't open it. 

 

Does anyone know something or can help me?

wow 87 views, let me give my solution. At first I thought the other comments were the solutions.

I installed the app Teamviewer on my tablet. It gives me the connection to my laptop. So last time I was with a customer working on my BI Desktop report with my tablet while Power BI Desktop was running on my laptop (my laptop was at home while I was somewhere else). It does mean that my laptop needs to be active the whole time, but for those times I will be away it helps knowing I can work anywhere on my reports on Power BI Desktop. 

Hopefully this will help others 😄

Hi,

Power Bi Desktop doesn't work on Android. You need a Windows OS.
