Is there an Power BI Excel add-in in development for MAC Users?


Several of our executives would like to use Power BI to analyze and drill down on data. However they are MAC users, and are unable to access Power BI through excel.  We have established that the dashboard views on Power BI as a service is not sufficient for their needs.   Is there an excel add-in in development wihch would be compatible for MAC users?  Thank you. 



Do you use Power BI publisher for Excel? If so, based on this link, it is only able to use this plug-in in Windows OS. 

There is an idea about adding Excel plugin in mac here, please vote it up. Currently, you can install Windows VM to workaround this issue.
