Power BI for Android Tablets - Not Compatible

I am new to Power BI. It appears that Power BI is only available for Android phones and not for Android tablets. I have very recent Samsung phone and tablet and Power BI downloads for phone OK, but for tablet it says "Your device isnot compatible with this version." It also says "Designed for phones". Is there an Android tablet version of Power BI that is available?

Re: Power BI for Android Tablets - Not Compatible

I am guessing that similar to the iOS situation, there will be two mobile apps for Android - one for phones and one for tablets.  The phone iOS app only shows dashboards and tiles (no reports) but on an iPad, you can get to reports using the tablet version of the Power BI app for iOS.

 

So, and this is just a guess, I would expect that an Android Power BI for tablets will also be available and it will also allow users access reports as well as dashboards.

Do we know of an ETA for the android tablet version of Power BI? We love the package but it cant be utilised across our business until the release is made!

Re: Power BI for Android Tablets - Not Compatible

i've gotten it to work fine on my samsung tab 2 by downloading the apk directly and sideloading it.

 

it's probably not a supported scenario, so you can google up how to do these two steps on your own Smiley Happy
