Re: Is Power BI Desktop updated automatically?

You will get an Update Notification when launching Power BI Desktop and a new update is available. Clicking that notification will take you to the What's New list, from where you can download and install the new version.

 

Thanks,

Re: Is Power BI Desktop updated automatically?

I have selected the options to notify me when an update is available however a new update came out on the 2nd and I have not been notified. Is there somewhere other than under file>options>updates that I need to alter my settings?

No offence, but when you have 20 users needing updates to be applied each month, this is a pretty rubbish setup in my opinion.

However, since updates can contain any number of changes, you wouldn't want to force an update which breaks something in an existing report.
