Current processing times times for I-129 are 2-4 months according to USCIS website. This timeline has not changed since July 1st. My I-129 was received on May 15th and hopefully being processed. I will update on progress

check processing time on USCIS website.
https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/
Form "I-129 I Petition for a nonimmigrant Worker"
Field office or Service Center "Vermont Service Center" (since this is where TN I-129 are processed)
click "+ read more" to see the bottom
as of today it says
2 Months to 4 Months, TN - North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) professional, April 06, 2020

Since yours was filed April 27th, it is still within normal processing time, since April 27 is after April 06, 2020.

We have posted a “Receipt date for a case inquiry" in the table below to show when you can inquire about your case. If your receipt date is before the “Receipt date for a case inquiry", you can submit an “outside normal processing time” service request online.

I applied for TN visa approval thru I-129 in late June thru regular processing and there is no change in the status and it still shows “The case was received” for the last two months. Doesn’t the status change to “Processing” when it is being processed?

Sometimes, the status may not be accurate. It happened in my case also, even after receiving the approval notice, still the status showed as "the case was received"

Regarding I-129: Has anyone gotten a recent regular process time update from USCIS indicating longer processing times than they have posted on site i.e. 2 to 4 months?? My 4 months will be next week but status is still "Received". We haven't had any additional info requirements from USCIS.

I-539 applications are also at "Received", but the 3 of them have had their bio-metrics completed a few weeks ago.
