@Evan I have the Windows 11 insider (dev channel) update and now I have updated my Office suite to whatever the latest update is in the beta channel but I don't see any toggle to turn on the experience at all. At least the other person can see the toggle button. Anything I'm doing wrong? Running OS build 22000.51

At this point, I'm running Version 2108 (Build 14301.20002) - still no 'What's New' or 'Coming Soon' button.

It's finally working for me !!! (Using the build 16.0.14301.20004 64 bits)
Here's everything I did... Maybe it works for you as well...
1. Search for the Coming Soon feature using the search bar in your app (I tried it on Excel with a new blank file) and open it. It will open an article in a sidebar on the right. For me it was grayed out and I couldn't enable the new visual experience, like many people here in this forum post;
2. Give a feedback on the article on the bottom of the article saying if it was useful or not. I clicked on NOT useful (since I couldn't use it). Write something and send it.
3. Restart your Office 365 app and open the Coming Soon again. Now it should be possible to enable it. Enable the new visual experience using the toggle and restart your Office 365 software for the changes to take effect (again, I tried it on Excel on a new blank file);
4. With your software restarted, now you should have the new user interface running.
I'm personally a little disappointed... It doesn't look that different on Windows 10, dark mode still looks bad (the icon colors should change when dark mode is enabled) and the title bar now is THICK!
