New Boarding at LAX

Just received this email for a flight out of LAX. Looks like they are now making 2 group 1's. 1 and 1a I guess.
Mods please move this to an existing thread if it is old news.

"United® will be testing new boarding methods at Los Angeles International Airport. Our customers have told us they want a better experience when boarding, so we’re working to improve the process.Select customers will still be invited to pre-board as they are with the current boarding process. Beyond that, here are some of the changes you may see if your gate is testing a new process:Earlier boarding: On select flights, customers traveling in the premium cabin and United MileagePlus® Premier® 1K® members will be invited to board before Group 1.No need to line up before your group is called: Simplified lanes with new signs will allow you to relax at the gate or within the airport longer.Smaller group sizes for select flights: With fewer customers in your group, you’ll experience less crowding while boarding the aircraft.More efficient boarding: Following priority boarding groups, we’ll board customers sitting in window seats first and then middle and aisle seats.Less crowding: Fewer lines will create more space and easier access to the boarding door for customers exiting the plane from the previous flight and during pre-boarding."
