2018 Equinox - Storage for what?

What is this storage for? See photo. It's on the passenger side of the center console on the 2018 Equinox. I searched the manual and didn't find an answer. Tweeting to Chevy failed as well. The product designer must have had some unique purpose for this. It's really tight and much smaller than the old compartment. It's almost worthless. I put my wallet in there but that makes very little sense.

Anyone know? Any guesses?

For a passenger to place a cellphone or something else like a note pad and pen. My GF puts her cellphone there so it's not in the way of the cup holders or the cubby in front of the center stack or the cubby in front of the console.

Looks to be a "net" replacement for the hard plastic pocket that has been in that location for years. Empty, the new pocket would take up less leg room than the old hard pocket would and if it's the same size it's a great place to hold paper maps if you still use them. Here is the hard pocket from my 2016 Nox which is the same as the one I had on my 2014.

It's for snacks. They intentionally made it small due to the obesity problems these days.

Geez, it's much bigger on the previous generation. That net looks useless.
With the old hard pocket, my wife uses it for redbox movies, papers, gloves... that net doesn't even look big enough for a redbox movie.

I recently was on a trip to the local airport to pick up a relative and while waiting for the plane to arrive, I looked up on my iPad the App "Flight Aware 24" for the arrival of the plane. Oh yes I did store the IPad in that pocket that was referenced both traveling to and from airport.
