Currently, the updated version of Lighthouse is live on PageSpeed insights. It will be live on Chrome Dev Tools in Chrome 94 on September 21, 2021.
Google Lighthouse is an open-source tool created by Google for testing web pages highlighting web performance. Google Lighthouse runs PageSpeed Insights. It is a measurement tool related to web performance, also introduced by Google.
The PageSpeed insights only show the web page performance metrics. It does not provide the other data that Lighthouse presents, which includes accessibility and SEO. Lighthouse measures things like how long it takes for a web page to become interactive.
There is no significant change in the new update, but it is a step towards more robust things in the future. In the future, Lighthouse will also be able to analyze when a user takes action, like clicking a button, and what happens next.
