Important:

-Only Power BI dashboards can be embedded in Dynamics, Power BI reports should first be associated with a dashboard.

-PowerBI dashboard in Dynamics 365 are considered like personal dashboards and cannot be system dashboards

-PowerBI dashboards cannot be shared unless you’ve got the Pro or Premium license.

-You’ll notice that you still have the possibility to open the dashboard in Power BI from your Dynamics 365 dashboards page. You have an additional button in the ribbon called Open in Power BI that takes you directly to Power BI.
