We’re excited to announce the Power BI app for Microsoft Teams is available in the US Government Community cloud (GCC). This enables organizations in GCC to use Power BI as a data hub, enables users to find data without context switches, and to bring data into more collaboration to help make better decisions.

With the new app roll-out users can quickly find content in Power BI, discover datasets, take advantage of the built-in Teams activity analytics reporting, and quick create experiences to get started faster using data to take better actions. Read more about these capabilities in our detailed blog post about Power BI in Microsoft Teams.

The app makes it easy to bring reports for Power BI into your channels as tabs with a single click, speeding up your collaboration around data. The app also updates the tab experience, so you can now pick items from the new workspace experience including reports in organizational apps.

The app has most of the capabilities available in the commercial cloud, though there are a few differences, here’s the quick list:

  1. Messaging Extension is not yet supported (planned)
  2. Activity feed notification are not yet supported (planned)
  3. Automatic installation for Power BI users (planned)
  4. Chat in Teams is not supported

We encourage organizations to install and pin the Power BI App for their users. This guide gives you all the details needed to make this smooth an efficient. As we roll-out the Power BI app for Teams, we have not enabled automatic installation for Power BI users in GCC. This enables Power BI admins to review and configure the tenant setting and set a default to match their org’s needs. We expect to enable automatic installation in GCC in February 2022.
