April, Google Update How to calculate the Cumulative Layout Offset (CLS) metric in Core Web Vitals. In short, Google makes this metric more favorable for most websites, so your CLS score may rise on its own in the Google Search Console report on June 1.
June 1st, Google Post “The CLS indicator has been updated to more accurately reflect the layout changes on the page. You may see changes in the page’s CLS status (mainly positive) to reflect this change.” This was released by Google on April 13 After the exact same message.
But I confirmed to Google that this means that Google noticed the changes in April, but the score itself was not reflected in Search Console until June 1.
Geoffrey Jose of Google says Twitter “The June 1st change reflects the updated CLS definition, as described in the https://web.dev/evolving-cls/ post. The update from CrUX to SC took several weeks.”
The changes on June 1 reflect the updated CLS definitions, such as https://t.co/FKr2xiuzhj postal. The update from CrUX to SC took several weeks.

Therefore, you should see an improvement in your CLS score without taking any action.
So check your Core network vitality report In Google Search Console, and expect more green bars from CLS metrics:
Update: This is an extreme example that makes a huge difference to a site:
