Changes for the June 2020 update of Power BI Desktop
Part one of a six-part series of blogs

This month's update doesn't include many changes - the biggest being probably the emergence of the hierarchical slicer from preview.

Power BI June 2020 update - summary of new features

What's new in the June 2020 update of Power BI?  Not much (at least in comparison to the last 2 or 3 busy months):

New features Notes
Hierarchical slicers You can include more than one field in a slicer.
Mobile report designer It's easier now to create reports customised for mobile phones.
Line chart dot colours You can show different points on a line chart using different colours
Automatic refresh If you're using Direct Query, you can tell Power BI to refresh your data periodically, or when a measure changes.
AI insights You can access Microsoft's text and image AI programs ... if you have a Power BI Premium licence.

Oh, and the new Power BI ribbon is now officially live, and not just a preview feature (but you've probably been using it for a couple of months already).
