The Power BI mobile app for Windows 10 brings Power BI to your tablet or phone, with up-to-date, touch-enabled mobile access to your business information. View and interact with your company dashboards from anywhere — right on your Windows Start screen.

You create dashboards and reports in the Power BI service with your data.

Then interact with your dashboards and reports, explore the data, and share them, all from the Power BI mobile app for Windows 10.

First things first

Sign up for the Power BI service on the web

If you haven't signed up yet, go to the Power BI service to sign up for your own account for creating and storing dashboards and reports, and bringing your data together. Then sign in to Power BI from your Windows 10 device to see your own dashboards from anywhere.

  1. In the Power BI service, tap Sign up to create a Power BI account.

  2. Start creating your own dashboards and reports.

Get started with the Power BI app

  1. On the Start screen of your Windows 10 device, open the Power BI app.

  3. Tap Start exploring to view your own dashboards.

Try the Power BI and Reporting Services samples

Even without signing up, you can play with the Power BI and Reporting Services samples. After you download the app, you can view the samples or get started. Go back to the samples whenever you want from the dashboards home page.

Power BI samples

You can view and interact with the Power BI dashboard samples, but there are a few things you can't do with them. You can't open the reports behind the dashboards, share the samples with others, or make them your favorites.
