Google Mobile First Index Seen In The Wild?

Last November, Google said they are experimenting with the mobile-first index but recently told us it isn't launching any time soon.

But now some are seeing the mobile-first index in the Google desktop search results.

A WebmasterWorld member said when he searches for [Ikea USA], [Macys] or [Zalando] amongst others, he sees the M dot URL come up in the search results, instead of the WWW.

Personally, I am seeing and not but this searcher is seeing for the Ikea search.

Of course, it wouldn't surprise me if Google is testing this with more users. Have you seen the Google mobile-first index in the wild yet? I have not.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

Update: This is likely not a mobile-first index test but rather related to Google Bug Shows Desktop URLs In Mobile Results.
