Read parquet file on AWS S3 with direct query mode

Hi All,


I am using power bi pro. 


I have parquet files sitting on AWS S3 and the files size is around 50GB. I wanted to read the parquet files into power bi with Import mode. Unfortunately, for pro we can only have 1 gb of dataset size.

My question is can we read data from parquet files via  Direct query mode? if not, what are the other options we have.


Thanks in advance..
