According to Google, it may remove out of place emojis in meta titles and description in search results. That is when Google feel it is spammy or misleading. Google also says they do not put the exactly the same content in meta title and description.

Final point is, don't spam too much with emojis. Use them wisely.

According to a study, loading time can play a great role in your website getting traffic. It is said that the conversions will decrease by 7 % when your page loading speed gets slower by 1 second.

That is some stats, isn't it. Get a good hosting if you do not have one already.

Is JavaScript causing issues with crawling on your website ? You might want to look at this

Many frontend frameworks rely on JavaScript to show content. This can mean Google might take some time to index your content or update the indexed content.
A workaround we discussed at Google I/O this year is dynamic rendering. There are many ways to implement this. This blog post shows an example implementation of dynamic rendering using Rendertron, which is an open source solution based on headless Chromium.

Here is Google's official take on Javascript and SEO. Since Javascript rendering if expensive for Google, it normally defers and index the non Javascript content. Rendered content will appear on search result, but when that you cannot be sure of. In short, at the current stage non JS website has an advantage in SEO. Lesser JS parsed, greater your chances on the search result.

Don't rely on just video to display or index your content. Always use supporting text for better results on SEO.

According to Google, you can add different types of structured data to alternate versions of a page. The question was about an AMP version and desktop version of a page. According to Google's structured data guideline it is preferable to use JSON-LD wherever possible.

According to reports, Google has come up with a broad core search algorithm update. This is confirmed on Google's social media account. But there are no details what it does and what you will have to do if you got hit by it.

The thumb rule is that you cannot do anything even if you are hit and affected by the algorithm update. Rumour has it that this update focuses health and medical sector. There is no way of confirming it though.

Google stops giving preference to pagination. Tells users they have retired rel=prev/next

No need to use previous page and next page if you don't want to.
