Power BI Free users can see Power BI Reports embedded in Teams Channels
At present, users with Power BI Free licenses cannot view Power BI reports embedded in their team's Teams Channels, EVEN if they report in question is hosted on a Premium Workspace. They are forced to view it direct on the Power BI Cloud Service.
This is not a good user experience, and cheapens the proposed value of the Premium product. Free users should be able to see (at minimum) Premium-hosted Reports embedded in Teams Channels, the same as all Pro users are currently able to.
I agree, this is a big adoption issue. On a side not a slight work around is if your report is in the same workspace as the Team in question you can pin the Power BI report to a tab in that Team and all members of that a team can see it (inc with RLS) without having to have a pro licenses but the workspace must be provisioned with Premium capacity. As mentioned this only works if its all in the same workspace which is a pain and can cause duplication of reports and data.
Please please, Microsoft, make this work! Discovered this issue today, after I enthusiastically put together a new dashboard for our management. Teams is a great resource for us all to communicate, and I want the relevant Teams to be able to access information from Power BI seamlessly, without navigating to the published App webpage

Such a real problem for me right now. I agree that this simple dev app should be viewable for all in the Teams Tab- else what's the point?!

This idea should rise to the top of Microsoft's list if they truly want the Team space to be the outstanding collaborative tool they tout it to be.
