How can we improve Power BI?

Enable Power Query Excel add-in for Mac/Apple/iOS

Even though worldwide mac user adoption is 8% (close to 94 million users) - there are a lot of data scientist and data analyst who use excel on mac and hardly anyone knows about Power BI! I think the best way to introduce them to this amazing world is via enabling Power Query in excel for them and most of influence million dollar analytics tools budget on a regular basis which would help accelerate the Power BI growth!

        Similar to other commentators here - I'm used to using the power query tool on Windows PC and need the same functionality when transferring work to my Mac running Office 360. Please update soon!

        I am disappointed that after signing up for office 365 for MAC I cannot use the brilliant power query on my MAC. I am a daily user of Power query on my PC but switch between two machines for various functionality. I would therefore like to request a roll out of Power BI for MAC – this would be a great improvement. Thanks.

        I have used Power Query on my windows machine at work. I'm addicted and love it. I was very disappointed to see that it isn't available in Excel 2016 which I recently purchased on my Mac. Please make this available.

        Oh my goodness, please. Please, please. Bring it to Mac OS.

        I strongly agree that Power Query needs to come to the OSX. Why would you want to differentiate between the operating systems?

        Presently using Power BI Designer on my MacBook Pro via Parallels... Excel 2011 is seriously left behind and Excel for MAC isn't as fast as Excel 2013 running on MAC (based on my meagre experience).
        However, Power BI on Parralels ( Version 10.2.2 (29105)) seems to be running into some concerns when it comes to publishing...

        Excel 2016 for Mac is very promising, but the lack of support for Power BI is disappointing considering that Silverlight is available and supported on Mac OS. Please make it happen!
