Google posted in the data anomalies page and on Twitter that it has updated the coverage report within Google Search Console and as a result, you may see more indexed pages being reported as of December 15, 2019. In short, some pages that were “Crawled – currently not indexed” are now known to be indexed.

Google wrote “The Index Coverage report can now more accurately report on indexed pages. Because of this, some pages that were Crawled – currently not indexed are now known to be indexed. As a result, you may see a transfer of pages from Excluded to Valid state. This does not reflect any changes in your site, but a more accurate accounting system.”

It makes you wonder – I mean – here, I’ll quote AJ:

In any event – if you see the change and your clients go – what is up – you can show them this.
