In today’s digital world, we access data at all times, no matter where we are. We all rely on our mobile devices, especially for getting insights and information about things we care about. And we expect the same experience while we work.

We’re excited to introduce the Looker Mobile app, offering access to your data quickly, from wherever you are, in an intuitive, easy, and secure way. You can now get to all the dashboards, Looks, and boards that help you work smarter on your Android (Play Store) or iOS (App Store) device.

Looker Mobile app features

Intuitive design for quick and easy access to your data

In the app, you’ll find your content organized by the following categories:

  • Favorites has all your saved looks and dashboards. You can add more favorites right from the app.
  • Recently viewed content is a quick reference and access point to what you have recently looked at.
  • Boards organize your personal content in a single place.
  • More is where you can browse content across other user folders.

Share your content with others

We know how important it is to collaborate and share ideas with colleagues. To make it easier, we’ve made it simple to share with a single tap, right from your device — no need to turn on your desktop to share content anymore.

Seamless transition from your scheduled emails/chats to mobile

Your scheduled content got an upgrade with Looker Mobile: when you receive a scheduled dashboard in your email, just tap the link from your mobile device to view and interact with your content live right inside the app. No more dealing with static data in PDFs.

Keep data secure with enterprise level security

  • Log in using a QR code. You can log in to the mobile app by scanning a QR code, which can be found here:

    Contact your Looker admin if you need help finding the QR code for your company.

  • Biometric authentication. To add a layer of security and remove the need for remembering another password, we have included a biometric authentication feature. You can set it up after logging in for the first time and then use it going forward.
