Q&A for the Latest iOS no longer appears as an option for Power BI Reports, only Dashboards?

We tested this for weeks back a few months ago ... as something changed?  We only tested Siri and Q&A against PBI reports and it worked like awesome !!!

Hi @anywhereanytime 


Do you mean the Q&A button in report?



You can add Q&A to a report in Power BI Desktop or the Power BI service in two different ways:

  • Add a Q&A visual.
  • Add a Q&A button.

To add the Q&A visual to a report, select the Q&A icon in the Visualization pane. Alternatively, double-click anywhere on the report canvas to insert the Q&A visual. To add a button, on the Home ribbon, select Buttons > Q&A.

Hey @anywhereanytime ,


Q&A is available for report when a Q&A visual is part of the report.

This never changed.


Thanks, Maya

Thank you Maya, that is logical, but I vividly recall that we "had a Q&A double icon" available as an option in the task pane.  I determined that a powerful feature in Q&A is that it could "iteract with the root data" and not just the "measures on our existing reports".  Your title is showing Power BI Team so can you verify that there was not a "Q&A icon" for reports that is now no longer available as an option?
