    I believe meta description/title is actually done via pixel length so it's not always gone to be down to characters. It does also vary on the query as to how long the snippet is (https://moz.com/blog/i-cant-drive-15...ptions-in-2015) I would personally stick to 155 characters. Try and provide a meta description relevant to the page AND the query that the user is typing. If you're a b2b company I try and add a phone number in there too if there's sufficient space.
