I installed the most recent Power BI Report Server as we intend to use it for on-premises only.
I designed a report using the Power BI Desktop for Report Server and published it to PBI Report Server.
I am able to open the report from a Chrome Browser from both a desktop and an android smart device, however when trying to open it from the Power BI Mobile App a loading circle keeps spinning forever! Taking note that I am able to see the published PBI reports from the Mobile App but not able to open any of them.

Unfortunately we cannot share images for security reasons.
We very much did the same steps described in the link:
1. We created a Power BI Report using the Power BI Desktop Designer for Power BI Report Server [June 2017 Release]
2. We saved (published) the report to the Power BI Report Server
1. We were able to open and interact with the report from a Chrome Browser on a desktop and also on the android smart device connected to the local intranet,
using the link: <<PBI Server Address>>/reports, where <<PBI Server Address>> is the Power BI Report Server local IP Address
Now for Power BI Mobile App, we used the most recent edition.
1. We added a Report Server in the App and connected it using the local IP address of the server and we used the same domain credentials used in the Chrome Browser. - It was connected successfully.
2. We selected the added Report Server in the Mobile App and we are able to see the Power BI reports published to this server with their names and icons.
However, when clicking on any of those reports an empty page appears with a rotating icon apears and stays for ever and the report never opens!
Note: The rotating icon is not the Loading Data icon, however it is only an icon with no description.
We checked the log folder and log files in the Power BI Report Server installation folder, but no errors or description is written there!
We also checked the server event viewer and nothing there also!

Did you test on other device? Does this issue only appeared on specify device or all of android devices?(based on test, it seems works on ios devices)

Yes, tested it on multiple android devices from various vendors and the same problem happens.
I couldn't test it on iOS devices as I don't have access to such a device. In my region, the ultimate majority of devices are android devices with extremely rare availability of iOS devices.
Is this is an official limitation inthe product?! Will this be part of the product roadmap?!
Our customers really want to know if this is available on android devices or not as they can't change their current devices!
