Great!!!! A much needed feature. Google seems to be just on a roll theses days as it continues to refine and update Android. I give credit to the competition from MS and iOS and even BB10 it has caused Google to come out swigging to stay far ahead of everyone else.
Competition is Good.

IOS 6 = Android 2.3 in terms of features. I can see where that confusion comes from :)
