With the addition of page experience in the documentation for helpful content, it looks like more changes are on the way.
In the announcement, it was mentioned that the Page Experience Report in Search Console will be transformed into a new page linking to the general guidance on page experience, plus a dashboard-view of the individual Core Web Vitals and HTTPS reports that will still remain in Search Console.
Aside from this, starting December 1, 2023, they will also be retiring Search Console’s Mobile Usability report, the Mobile-Friendly Test tool, and Mobile-Friendly Test API. They included that the removal of these features and tools does not mean that mobile usability isn’t important, it remains critical for users who are using mobile devices. However, there are many other resources for evaluating mobile usability that has emerged that can be used to test the mobile-friendliness of a site. A particular example mentioned is Lighthouse from Chrome.
These changes may come as a shock for some, especially since page experience and the core web vitals, have been a hot topic for the past year so much so that there is even a “Page Experience Update”.
Here are some FAQs provided by Google on these changes coming up:
