Does ArcGIS Maps for Power BI dynamically update with real-time data?

Hi everyone, does ArcGIS Maps for Power BI support dynamic data updates? I know that location data from a Power BI dataset can be visualized on an ArcGIS map, but if that dataset is changing in real-time, does the visualization update itself as the real-time data changes? 

 

Ultimately, I'd like to have a Power BI dashboard with ArcGIS Maps ingesting real-time ArcGIS data. My understanding is that this capability is currently not available, based on correspondence with Esri Support. However, using Power BI's real-time data streaming support (e.g., Real-time streaming in Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft Docs), there are ways to push real-time data into a dataset. If I were to push ArcGIS data into a dataset that's linked to ArcGIS Maps for Power BI, would those dynamic data updates be reflected in the visualization?
