Hello All,
Very soon you could see some updates rolling in that update your Admin center but only if you have enabled ‘Targeted Release for Everyone’, so set that check box and let the great times roll….:)  Here is what you could see:

Make the new admin center your default admin center.

You now have the option to make the new SharePoint admin center your default experience while still being able to go back to the classic admin center if you need to.

Improved management experience for group-connected sites

We’re making it easier to administer group-connected sites by allowing SharePoint administrators to delete and restore sites, manage ownership, and change sharing settings.

Simplified hub site creation and association

In the SharePoint admin center, you can manage existing hub sites in addition to creating new hub sites.  With the these capabilities also extending  to multi-geo scenarios.

Quickly customize and control the site creation experience

New site creation options allow you to create sites on behalf of users and configure common settings such as language, time zone, and storage limit.
In addition to these site creation controls, you now can specify settings that apply to all site when they're created such as the time zone and site creation path.  For organizations who want to control the site creation experience, you can also enable or disable self-service site creation.

Improved site management experience

We have added more management controls across site management and storage, including a simplified view of your tenant-level storage usage and limit with the ability to switch to manual site storage management.  Additionally, we’ve now enabled the use of security groups as a site collection administrator in SharePoint Online.

Improved access control and policies options

New updates to the SharePoint admin center include a consolidated view of access control policies to help safeguard your information.   On the new access control page, you can configure policies for unmanaged or non-compliant devices , configure the idle-session sign-out experience for users, as well as configure location policies to restrict or allow access to SharePoint Online from known IP ranges .
