Microsoft Power BI App vs. Power Bi Desktop

Do I understand this correctly?

 

Microsoft Power BI App is a Power BI viewer while Power BI Desktop is what you use to create?

 

Also, Power BI Online is showing that I am a PRO User, I don't see anything in Power BI Desktop, and the Microsoft Power BI App says I am a PRO Trial User. I have a paid subscription, not a trial subscription. Does anyone know why this might be?

Hi @nstanosh ,

 

Power BI Desktop is a free application you can install on your local computer that lets you connect to, transform, and visualize your data. You can refer to the online document.

As you said, "the Microsoft Power BI App says I am a PRO Trial User." Could you please share the screen shot of that?

@v-frfei-msft If it shows I have a license, but is still showing Trial version in the "Microsoft Power BI" App, how do I fix this?
