PowerBI desktop page refresh not showing on format list

Hello all,

The latest Power BI desktop June release has mentioned that the Automatic page refresh is now generally available.

 

I have the latest version installed but still didn't see "Page refresh" on my toolbar. 

I carry the Pro version. Is this part of the preview feature? I didn't see it on the preview feature list either...neither on the PBI service.

 

Is it still only available for "direct query"?

Is it because I didn't have a "direct query" exist so it doesn't show up as an option?

 

Can someone please point me to the right direction?

 

Thanks

Jessie
