Thank you for the feedback.
We are lookimg into changing that behavior, and allowing single-tap interaction - which will solve your issue as well.
I'm also struggeling with this issue and it's actually very annoying for the end user.
Do you know whether its on the feature list for the next release for real or is it just a guess?
Enabling single tap interaction with report visuals
We changed report interaction so it will require only one tap on a visual, button, or slicer to interact with its data right away. Users will no longer need to tap on a visual to select it and to tap again to interact with it, a single tap will do them both.
Please use latest version on iOS and Android
Can you please publish this on https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Developer/bd-p/Developer
I will also send this to the embedded team
It is released already
