Hi

 

I created report in Power BI desktop and also added Mobile layout with few changes. then published to service. But when viewed from my android phone it still showing web view and not in Mobile layout.

 

Is something needs to be enabled

Hey @thanksforhelp22 ,

 

Are you using Power BI mobile app or mobile browser?

Report mobile layout is respected when you view the report in Power BI Mobile app (using phone and tablet) and holding your device in portrait orientation. When using browser, the report is always displayed in web layout.

 

Thanks, Maya

Hey @mshenhav 

 

I had the same problem as @thanksforhelp22 as I thought it would adapt to the browser. Is there any predictions if it is going to be possible to view the report in mobile layout but using browser?

 

Thanks

Hey @IEG_CSC12 ,

 

This is a question to ask at the Power BI service channel.

Hi
We are trying to use mobile optimized option with the App on a Tablet (iPad).
I was surprised to see it only works in portrait mode. When switching to landscape (which is the most common way people are using a tablet) it switches to the non-optimized/regular view.
I understand this is how it works right now. But it's just a big miss for mobile. For an iPhone it would be ok, but still switching to landscape also goes out of mobile view. But for a tablet it's not doable, it's just useless.
There must be some development on its way right? This seem very limititive to us.

Thanks
