Create App from Excel file stored on SharePoint

I think there should be functionality to build App from the excel file stored in Sharepoint? I know its possible to make App directly from Sharepoint-List but to make same from excel file stored in Share Point will be more beneficial because excel is used more as compared to Sharepoint - List

Adding my voice here.  Been chasing this for a while.   We share a lot of excel workbooks in Teams.  Being able to tap into these via a PowerApp can be big for our mobile workers.

I would add my vote for making PowerApps able to connect to Excel files in SharePoint. The vast majority of enterprise users are facile with Excel and are not going to see the benefits of learning the arcane ways of working with SharePoint Lists. I'm trying to build an app that will allow users to provide scores that feed back to a spreadsheet, but I see that without a 2-way connection to Excel, I'm faced with multiple steps of having every Excel spreadsheet entry get updated to the SP list with a custom Flow. Good grief! How do you ever hope to get any but the most hardcore techies to use PowerApps? How can MS be so dismissive of this need?
