Yes Meta description is always matters in SEO not only today in future too. Peoples decide to go to that website only because of valid description that appears beneath all URL's in SERP. I hope that All search engines will not change its strategy in future too. Meta Title and Descriptions are all time mandatory in SEO perspective.

The meta description is a ~160 character snippet, a tag in HTML, that summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched for phrase is contained in the description. Optimizing the meta description is a very important aspect of on-page SEO.

Meta description tag might not directly help with ranking anymore but it will surely help to improve CTR and which will eventually help with ranking improvement. Main purpose of meta description tag is to give visitor a brief about the landing page.

Meta descriptions still matter. It's a very good place to include meaningful lsi keywords and phrases for your post. For example if you want to target more than one keyword in your post, the smartly insert them in your meta description with meaningful sentences.

Additional info: These days Google switch meta description for your post titles on SERP if it don't find exact match for the keyword.

So never skip it!
