angular.js modules?

I've been playing around with Angular.js and one thing that I haven't really looked at yet are modules. My app currently has only one module. I was thinking that I should probably soon or later refactor it into more defined modules. Today, while searching for something else, I just found something surprising about modules:

"Angular Modules are good for nothing...so far. Except for loading 3rd-party angular code into your app and mocking during testing. Other than that, there is no reason to use more than one module in your app. Misko said of multiple modules: "[you] should group by view since views will be lazy loaded in near future". I'd love for someone on the Angular team to enlighten us on what their plans are for that." https://coderwall.com/p/y0zkiw
