Power BI enables analysts and data scientists to leverage Python scripts and Python visuals inside Power BI Desktop.

The new Python visuals support in the service allows consumers of dashboards and reports to see Python-generated visuals. We will initially support Python version 3.x and support five of the most commonly used packages in Python and plan to continue expanding this feature over the year.
