How can you respond to this update?

With this update, Google is indicating that they will be able to better understand the context of texts and therefore show better and more useful results. The update didn't come out of nowhere: since more and more people are using voice search, longer and longer search terms are used. With the new update, Google can find the actual subject of a text more easily. It is therefore important to consider the answer to the query while writing texts! The content must be relevant and add value. Good and natural texts will rank higher than automated and copied texts. Therefore, make sure you write texts for people and not for search engines, so keep in mind to answer a question with unique content. Also, a clear structure gives Google's spiders more opportunity to map out what the site is about. In addition, current SEO points such as website speed and link structure remain very important.
