Doesn't Async/Await help dealing with nested callbacks and simplify exception handling? I wouldn't push everyone to use it. But it is really useful in a lot of places. I cannot imaging writing Xamarin apps and distributed cloud services without it.

It certainly does help, but it's also (IMO) not a pattern to be adopted without some forethought, especially if want to mix async and sync style patterns. In practice, I have usually seen people go (mostly) all in on one or the other.
