Connecting Excel to Power BI

Hello there, i have an issue regarding excel and powerbi. I have a task to basically connect an excel sheet to powerbi so that, for example, i can edit the data in the excel sheet, and that information will automatically update on powerbi. To give a better idea - i am editing the sheet on my laptop, while on the big tv, where there is powerbi turned on, the visualizations change as i change the tables in my excel. Can anyone help me with this? I hope my explanation was atleast somewhat understandable.
