Recommended length for "description" in PLAs?

In the product listing ads data feed, is there a recommended best practice for description length? I see articles saying the description can be 500-1000 characters long, however on the google shopping results page (this is the only place the descrpition is shown today?) it seems to cut of the description at ~145 characters even if there is plenty of white space available. Is keeping below ~145 advised?

Yes, keep it under 145 characters because that's what Google is going to display.
