Search Snippets in Google are not from AMP pages

Everyone who is using Google is acquainted with the search snippets. Previously, there were many who believed that the snippets were a direct result from the AMP pages. However, the air has been cleared by Google’s John Mueller.

Like a regular session, someone asked, “what is the maximum and recommended meta description characters for AMP pages?”

To this @JohnMu replied, “AMP pages aren’t used for the snippet — only the canonical pages are used.”

This was a myth that many had and people were confused about the character limit et al. But, John’s answer on Twitter has made things clear. The next question was an almost obvious one. What if the AMP version and the canonical version are the same! There has been no reply from John on this, albeit a good question.
