Hi everyone 

I see it’s a problem with lot people now. 
But I still can’t find answers how can I sort it out my one.

Google crawled my page, and after reindexing the meta description is different what I wrote before.

I found answers here why, it’s up to Google.

But the meta description is a part of the product description now.

Any chance to change this?

Thanks for all replies

You are right, it's up to google algorithm to show the meta description (sometimes not perfect).
Try going to the Google Seach Console and submit that specific page to be reindexed, and give a few days (maybe even weeks).

If the website is new, you might find some inconsistencies in search results for some time.

I like to write them too, I find it gets better CTR if you can create one that Google actually uses. Algorithmic replacement happens roughly 6/10 times now, it's just how the search results work, get used to it. 

The implication of a replacement is that Googles algorithm doesn't 'think' your current meta desc is accurate for the current query, and/or is too long. You could try and re-write it to more accurately match the page content, see how you go. Also the Shopify meta desc field length (320char) is not correct. Do some research on "meta desc pixel width 2021" and you'll see what I mean.
