As expected as they did mention that a product review update will be rolled out this week right after they roll out the core update.

Released the November 2023 reviews update. Learn more about how to write high quality reviews.
Going forward, as the reviews system is now being improved at a regular and ongoing pace, we will no longer be posting about future updates on the status dashboard.

As always, good luck everyone.

Also, from my experience, product reviews update tend to affect all types of content too. All the recent product reviews update had people reporting of their sites shifting everywhere in the SERPs despite the pages aren't about products or reviews.
