Pro needed to view reports?

I have created a report and dashboard using lists from SharePoint. I then setup the dashboard to be viewed in a PowerApp via the Power Bi Control. Works beautifully and looks great.....for me. Anyone who uses the app just sees a white screen with the Power Bi symbol as if its loading. So I go to the Power Bi web app and share both the dashboard and report with the user and it is the same deal. When the user tries to access it via the Shared with me tab it tells them they need a Pro account. Even when their permissions are set to read only. Is this really the case? My organization provides Pro licence to those who will be using the tool to create reports. It is a bit ridiculous if you need a Pro licence if you will only be viewing reports. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this really the case?

Hi there

The current Power BI licensing is that when you share a report or dashboard or app with any user they will require a Power BI Pro license.

Unless the content is running on Power BI Premium, then the user can be a free user.
