Import From File not visible BI Desktop

I have downloaded and installed Version: 2.27.4163.701 of the Power BI Desktop.  Under the Visualizations Menu, there is no "..." menu icon to "Import From File". I am unable to add downloaded custom visualization files for use on the Desktop app.

 

I tested using the online app.  The menu option to "Import From File" is visible.  I am using Windows 10, 64bit.

PLEASE NOTE THE ANSWER IS NOT IN THE ARTICLE, but rather in the comments section below the article.  I posted the comment exchange in this reply:

 

  • Running PBI version: 2.27.4163.701 64bit on my PC.  I don't see the new "..." or "import" feature for the visuals.  Doing something wrong?  

  • @User - The Desktop build supporting custom viz will arrive later this week.

The Desktop app update to support custom visualizations will be coming later this week (according to a comment from Amir on http://blogs.msdn.com/b/powerbi/archive/2015/10/19/visualize-your-data-your-way-using-custom-visuals... )
