Microsoft's Power BI app rolls out to Windows 10 PCs, following Mobile launch

A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced the release of its new Power BI app for Windows 10 Mobile. Since the app was built on the company's Universal Windows Platform, it promised that users could expect it to make its way to other Windows 10 devices in the near future - and today, it's announced that Power BI is available for Windows 10 PCs and tablets.

While it can be used comfortably on PCs with 'traditional' mouse and keyboard interactions, Microsoft says that the new app "offers a touch-optimized experience", for "every screen, from small phones all the way up to a Microsoft Surface Hub", adding:

The Power BI universal app is designed from the ground up to run on Windows 10 using the capabilities you already know and love, such as pressing and holding on your dashboard index to open the context menu, or gaining quick access to a dashboard simply by pinning it to your device home screen as a tile.

On certain Windows 10 Mobile devices, the app also works in Continuum mode, supporting mouse and keyboard input on a phone connected to a larger display.

The app is free to download, and available now from the Windows Store.
