At the starting of SEO, the length of meta description was 155 characters. This limit was increased in December 2017 and enhanced to 300 to 320 characters (maximum). But in May 2018, Google confirms it shortened search results snippets after expanding them last December. Now the limit of meta description has again been 160 characters.

You can compose meta information for any length, but, Google usually trims snippets ~300 figures(according to 2017updates) You require meta descriptions high enough that they are describing. We usually suggest writing meta descriptions within 50–300 figures.

it depends on google algorithm. Google always changed its algorithm, but if you want to decide how long should meta description be, it between 50 - 150 characters (with spaces).

When writing meta descriptions, we tend to keep it between 150-160 characters because Google usually truncate snippets that are longer than 160 characters. Besides, Google used to display only 2 lines of meta descriptions on their search results page.
