It is very important, as it is often used for the snippet that Google shows in the SERPs.

After the page title, it is the second most important thing for catching the potential visitors eye.

An official Google blog stated they stopped requiring meta tags about 10 years ago. However most people that I have read in their posts all still keep putting it in. It's not that hard and only takes a few minutes. I do.
