Use command "yum install gnome-session-wayland-session" then reboot and in gdm you will find the option to use Wayland gnome session

But after rebooting and choosing the wayland session just a blank screen only displaying. If i select the gnome session it displays the window normally.

I am testing it now with F21 TC4. But you can file a bug if needed or ask on IRC channel #fedora-qa
