mobile seo iconIn response to Jennifer Slegg's awesome coverage of Google's Gary Illyes statement that local pack won't be impacted by the mobile-friendly algorithm, Gary said on Twitter nothing really will be outside of Google's core web search results, the ten blue links.

Gary Illyes from Google posted on Twitter, "just the 10 blue links are" impacted by the mobile-friendly algorithm.

So the Google local pack will not, probably images, videos, etc will also not be.
