The lane currently displays Web Vitals information such as First Contentful Paint (FCP), Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) and Layout Shift (LS). In short, now there is a new lane of data for Core Web Vitals in this performance recording section.

Within Chrome 88's developer tools, under the performance recordings, you now have an option to display Google Web Vitals information.
