May 12, 2023

Interaction to Next Paint (INP) will replace First Input Delay (FID) as a Core Web Vitals metric starting in March 2024, Google announced at Google I/O today. Google reiterated that Core Web Vitals do not guarantee good rankings in Google Search, wrote Martin Splitt, Developer Relations Engineer at Google. Good stats within the Core Web Vitals report in Search Console or third-party Core Web Vitals reports don’t guarantee good rankings,” according to Splitt. Google will replace the FID metric with the INP metric as part of the Core Web Vitals in March 2024. Google Search Console will include INP in the Core Web Vitals report later this year so you can start measuring your new INP scores.
