How to use desktop app to connect to room at `meet.jit.si`

The desktop app can be downloaded here: https://desktop.jitsi.org/Main/Download

However, I see no way of making this connect to a room in, e.g. meet.jit.si via a URL.

I know I can connect to such rooms via a web browser, but I want to connect using the desktop app.

Am I missing something?

This is the legacy Jitsi Desktop xmpp/sip client. What you are looking for is https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron/releases
