The new meeting experience will give you access to the new Together mode, the large gallery for video with grids up to 7×7 and meetings will start in their own window.

You will notice that the meeting controls are now available at the top of the window instead of being at the bottom, and the new together mode and the Large Gallery are available in the ellipsis as shown in the following image. Together mode is just available in meeting with 5 or more participants.
