The November Power BI Desktop version adds the Optimize ribbon and modifies the app’s colour accent.

Microsoft releases the several updates that have been made to its Power BI Desktop version over the course of each month toward the end of the month. This time around, the tech juggernaut released the November update, which includes a new colour accent, an Optimize ribbon to simplify report generation for users, and more.

The Power BI team changed the accent colour to teal while considering how it would improve contrast and increase visibility throughout the software, making it more usable for people with visual impairments. In addition to that, a number of new modifications have been made to a number of modules, including reporting, modeling, data integration, visualizations, and more.

Notably, WebView2’s infrastructure update for the data analytics service is also getting closer to GA. An installation prompt will be displayed each time users who do not already have WebView2 installed run their desktop application because it is intended to eventually make switching to WebView2 mandatory for all users. You can get your hands on the latest update for Power BI Desktop here.
