JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

So for desktop what will happen here is if a part of the page is not visible by default will assume it’s not the primary content of a page when it comes to mobile first indexing so when we switch at some point to indexing the mobile version then that’s the less of a problem because we realize that sometimes their difficulties with regards to kind of transforming content and making it usable on mobile that results in some content not being visible by default.
