This new experience was introduced in October 2020, but it required admins to enable it. In April 2021, this will be the default user experience.
Duplicates can happen when users create or edit records or when data is imported. Microsoft Dataverse helps you address potential issues by detecting duplicates for active records like accounts and contacts. The updated experience is designed as a Unified Interface dialog and is integrated seamlessly with merging records to help you manage your data integrity when duplicate records are found. With this new duplicate detection experience you can quickly find and manage records with easier access to merge the duplicates and keep the record you want. When you merge a record, any related or child records are also merged.
