When you visit the main home page of Google Search console at google.com/webmasters and then click on the sign in tab. You get carried to the new BETA version of Google’s Search Console. You will not get defaulted to that old version of Google Search Console.
The tech bloggers are still not sure about the time when Google went for the move to drive people by default to the new version from the old version. The old version can still be accessed at google.com/webmasters/tools. However, the default welcome sign in page takes the person directly to the search.google.com/search-console. The new console still has the clear label of BETA.
As people would remember, Gmail existed in BETA for about five years before the BETA label was removed. Google has announced that it is out of BETA.
