Roadmaps showing future changes to Power BI
So there are now three ways that we know of to see what's coming to Power BI!
Method 1 - Preview Features
So this is the one that we knew about - you can go into the Power BI options menu:
Choose this menu option.
This then allows you to see what's waiting in preview:
Features coming to a desktop near you soon.
