CES 2013 coverage, we have a bit coming from the folks at Cyanogen. This latest is a smaller feature, but based on what we have seen, it was once a "highly requested feature" amongst those using Cyanogen. In other words, smaller feature addition or not, this one should be well received.

Galaxy Nexus users. As we all know, the Verizon Gnex is the only Nexus still hanging out in the Android 4.1 era, while Google's updated all the rest to the latest and greatest Jelly Bean.
