    I came across an article on Search Engine Journal dated 1st Dec 2017 which states that Google has just updated the description length from 160 to 230. This means we have more length available to target our keywords.

    As confirmed by Google they already extended the snippet from 160 up to 320 max characters but for existing description there is no need to change according to Google.

    320 Max, but the visibility in SERP is not more than 160 previously which is now extended to 320

    It is because they were the current description but if they found out concerning the update they will immediately modify their description unless if they want to.
