The only async support in ES6 were standardised promise objects and arrow functions (which cleanup the callback-heavy promise-based code). As well as extensive promisification of browser API but that's not directly ES6.

Uh, did you notice the "async"/"await" keywords?

EDIT: My mistake. I learned something today.

That's not ES6. It's ES2017, aka ES8.
