A report is an interactive view of your data, with visuals representing different findings and insights from that data. **You create and customize reports in the Power BI service (https://powerbi.com) or in Power BI Desktop.** When you create reports in Power BI Desktop, you can create a version of the report optimized for phones.

Then you view and interact with those reports in the Android app.

View a Power BI report on an Android phone

  • On the main page of the Power BI mobile app, tap Reports, then tap the report you want to open.

    Here you see the same Power BI reports and Excel workbooks that you have in the Power BI service.

  • Or, on a dashboard, tap the ellipsis (...) on a tile > Open Report.

    The report opens in landscape mode.

    Note:

      If the report owner has created a phone layout, then the report will open in portrait mode.

View reports optimized for your phone

Some Power BI report authors create a report layout optimized for phones. If a report page has a phone layout, then when you go to that page, it opens in portrait mode.

Cross-filter and highlight a Power BI report page

  • Tap a value in a chart.

    Tapping the red "030-Kids" bubble in the bubble chart highlights related values in the other charts. Because the column chart in the upper-right shows percentages, some highlighted values are larger than the total values, and some are smaller. 

Use slicers to filter the report page

When designing a report in the Power BI service (https://powerbi.com), it's good to add slicers to a report page. Then when you or your colleagues view your reports on your mobile devices, you can use the slicers to filter the page.

  • Select a value in a slicer on the report page.
