Google seems to be preparing to migrate Search Console to new URLs
A year after rebranding Google Webmaster Tools to Google Search Console, they now begin testing changing the URLs from /webmasters to /search-console.
Google seems to be preparing to migrate Google Search Console from /webmasters to /search-console URLs. This is about a year after Google rebranded Google Webmaster Tools to the Google Search Console.
Dan Shure posted several screen shots on Twitter of the new URL format.

He did say he is part of a beta, but when he got a notification via the Google Search Console, the link in the notification took him to this new URL.
I assume Google has been planning the migration from /webmasters to /search-console for some time, and the best way to make sure the migration goes well is to beta test it with some users.
Postscript: Google’s John Mueller has confirmed Google is testing a new mobile friendly testing tools.
