The arrow has two possibilities of use:

There are some subtle differences in what these icons are commonly used to represent — while the caret and plus icons are typically meant to indicate that an accordion will open, designers have used the right-facing arrow icon to signal two different actions: either staying on the same page and expanding content or visiting a different page.
