February 22, 2022, the page experience update began slowly rolling out to desktop users. It is expected to be finished by the end of March 2022. This means that desktop ranking will use the same three Core Web Vitals metrics: LCP, FID, and CLS, as well as their associated thresholds. Other page experience signals, such as HTTPS security and the absence of intrusive interstitials, will remain unchanged. While the mobile-friendliness signal will continue to be used in mobile ranking, it will no longer be used in desktop ranking. The desktop signal is based on the URLs that desktop users see when a site has separate desktop and mobile URLs with the appropriate configuration.
