"Read" users of a O365 group should have "read" access to Power BI content available on the corresponding workspace
Currently, only "members" of a Office 365 group are able to consume/edit the PowerBI reports we publish to the corresponding SharePoint site.
However, we'd like "Visitors" with just "read" access to also be able to consume the reports.
100% agree. I'm retired and no longer have a work address, but I still wish to work with Power BI. I need an account.

Are there any technical reasons for putting features like paginated reports and Calculated Groups in Premium?
If not, I think that is a mistake. PBI adoption is a bottom-up process, and it is a big step to go Pemium or for an ISV, to Embedded. Let enthusiasts evangelize with all the features available, then make the decisions about investments.
The whole point (one of them at least) with cloud computing is that everyone can have access to the same technology, just with different numbers of users.

Why can I sign up for office at 60 pounds a year but not sign up for powerbi? It simply drives me to one of your competitors.

I would love to be able to share Power BI visuals about my nephew's baseball team, family picnics and dozens of other small, silly things on various family/small non profit websites. How would this not help with adoption if such uses were always branded? They could easily be 'import only' and limited to a small data amount. Allowing this kind of casual use will turn Power BI into the kind of familiar and 'must have' tool that Excel is.

I was working on an enterprise with about 150,000 people, using Windows + Ms Office. I'm an Excel expert. Now, I'm retired. Trying to create an account at Power BI, surprisingly, was denied, because I don't have a commercial e-Mail. Can't I learn it in depth anymore?! Why is Excel offered "Home" and "Home Premium"? Can't I assist people with trouble on these things anymore?
Would love to be able to use Power BI to display personal data and reports to friends and family. I think this would be a great way to showcase the product and would enable those without a corporate Power BI to get started.
