Microsoft is rolling out new user experience for Document Libraries and Lists in SharePoint Online. If you are a SharePoint Online tenant user and want to test new User Experience for your Document Library and/or SharePoint Lists then perform following steps:

Document Library:

      1. Open Library Settings
      2. Click Advanced Settings
      3. Scroll to bottom of the page, you will see a new setting called List Experience, similar to following:
      4. List Experience Setting
      5. Click New experience
      6. Click OK

SharePoint List:

You can try the same steps for SharePoint Lists also but if they do not work, here is another trick:

  1. Navigate to your desired list
  2. Append a QueryString parameter TryNewExperience=true in your url and refresh the page
  3. Example:
    1. Original List Url: https://yourdomain.sharepoint.com/Lists/Test%20List/AllItems.aspx
    2. After QueryString parameter:  https://yourdomain.sharepoint.com/Lists/Test%20List/AllItems.aspx?TryNewExperience=true
