Hello, Android lovers. We’ve got a little surprise for you.
We are excited to announce Tableau Mobile for Android phones is available right now! Download it today.
We know you’ve been jealous seeing Tableau Mobile running on your friend’s iPhone. You can put your jealousy to bed. The wait for the Android version is finally over.
Here is what our beta testers have been saying about the app so far:
“I have been waiting years for this. I just showed my executive sponsor and he just about jumped out of his seat…I didn't expect it to be so painless.”
“I'm so excited for Android mobile version! Can’t wait for it to be officially released!”
With the new Android app, you can snack on your data with the device you have in your pocket. You can visualize your data and answer questions with just a few taps. Here are some highlights:
- Easy access to your data: The app provides a friction-free and secure login experience. Your data is always displayed front and center. Enjoy browsing your vizzes with fluid infinite scroll with your Tableau Sever content, loading paged thumbnails in real-time.
- Location awareness: Have you ever wondered what's going on around you when you’re out and about? The Android app allows you to center the map on your current location with single tap and ask questions like: Which customers are within 3 miles of where I am?
- Backward compatibility: The app is compatible with Tableau Server 8.2 and above as well as with Tableau Online. You need to be running at least Android 4.4 (KitKat) on your phone.
Some capabilities like offline snapshots, background refresh, and Kerberos authentication will come after this initial release.
We look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions on the Ideas Forum. May the force be with you.
