April 8, 2016
Of late, many SEO professionals have reported about the new Google Search Console notifications for topics related to page-speed.
Here’s what the notification says-
“Subject: Recommended PageSpeed update available for siteURL.
Google has detected that your site is currently running PageSpeed < 18.104.22.168 or < 22.214.171.124, an older version of PageSpeed. Outdated or unpatched software can be vulnerable to hacking and malware exploits that harm potential visitors to your site. Therefore, we suggest you update the software on your site as soon as possible. Following are one or more example URLs where we found pages that have outdated software. The list is not exhaustive.”

Further, some additional URLs and recommended actions have been listed. According to the posts on Google Webmaster Forums and Twitter, Google began sending these notifications from April 6-2016 onwards.
Here’s a snapshot of the same:
A tweet by John Mueller said “sometimes we can recognize what you’re running and inform about updates, it’s usually less about active exploits.”
This means you will get this notification if you are running an older version of the Google Page Speed module. This development has no bearing upon page speed optimization recommendations which are not related to updating an old mobile from Google.
