Its being talked about all over (SEJ, PubGalaxy, Google themselves) but looks like @Bladhark is right that it's implementation starts in mid-june and wont be completed until end of august. I mistakenly thought it was starting roll out on June 1.I hope it isn't CWV, but it could be.
Do you have a link to any credible SEO's who say this?
But yea, Core Web Vitals (page experience) is going to be a part of the ranking algo - specifically Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) and First Input Delay (FID)
