Moto Voice

New features come to first generation models

The new version of Motorola's Touchless Control app, now rebadged as Moto Voice, has been updated today in a big way. Along with the bug fixing goodness that accompanies any and every app update, some of the new features from the 2014 Moto X have been pushed to the first generation Moto X phones. That means your Moto X, Droid Ultra, Droid MAXX and Droid Mini have some cool new features!

The official changelog:

  • When Moto 360 is active, only your watch will respond to your voice
  • Supported on: Droid Ultra, Droid Mini, Droid Maxx, Moto X (first generation)
  • Customize your own launch phrase to make Moto Voice respond only to you
  • Voice command support for YouTube, Facebook and WhatsApp
  • Turn on Talk to Me and other Moto modes through voice commands
  • Support for Moto Hint and Moto 360
  • User experience improvements and bug fixes
  • Compatible only with Android 4.4 KitKat

The update is live on some of our own Moto phones here, so it's a good idea to have a look and see if yours is ready. Check via the link at the top of the post.
