So, a new menu item appeared under Admin Centers on the left, namely Device Management. Yet the link takes you to a non-existent URL: https://devicemanagement.microsoft365.com/?ref=AdminCenter

 

Another example of "testing in production"? :)

I don't see it.

Can you post a screenshot, please?

It's gone now. Don't you just love it when they test things directly in production...

Screenshot courtesy of @Patrick afraIT, with the link, now disappeared.

Expect to see an MC post with something like this in the near future!

It now looks different again. Intune is back as well as new entries for Dynamics 365.

At least we have something new to spam about every new day :))

I believe we have our answer! It was the Microsoft 365 Admin Center that was showing an early appearance or bits of it, certainly seems like it's related anyway.
