Have seen a fair bit of discussion about this here in the UK today. Much of it is pointless ... whether reviews are a ranking factor or not, they're always going to be important for other reasons.
For the average SMB / SME owner though the title of this article surely creates confusion as I'm not sure they'd distinguish between web search, i.e. organic, and local.
Any thoughts from the Community here?

Along with the launch of support for JSON-LD for Reviews and Products structured data markup, we've cleaned up some of our application logic. For example, requirements for explicit reviewed item and correct property name values are now enforced. Check your markup in the Structured Data Testing Tool ( https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/ ) and Search Console Structured Data Dashboard ( https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2650907 ) to see if your site is impacted by these changes. For more information about how to format Reviews and Products markup to comply with Google's validation rules, see the documentation at https://developers.google.com/structured-data/
We hope these changes make it easier to use structured data on your side!
