Driving mode and Home mode added to Moto Assist for Moto G and Moto E

Motorola has updated the Moto Assist and Contextual Services applications today. The changes, which mean an update for all 2013 Moto phones, allow Home mode and Driving mode to be pushed to the budget-friendly Moto G and Moto E devices.

Users are now able to listen to incoming text messages and hear caller ID information, as well as respond using only their voice while tooling down the street or kicked back on the couch. You'll be notified in your status bar when your update slot is ready, or you can manually go check here:

  • It's incredible and about time. Used it while driving around today. It's forgiving even if it can't understand when you reply to a text via voice and makes sure you confirm everything. But reading the texts out loud is something I like. The home now is just bonus when feeling lazy too. It was worth the wait. Now I just need a car mount... Posted via Android Central App
  • I have had this on my Droid Maxx and I was VERY happy to see it go out to the E & G. I just ordered a 1st gen G LTE to "test drive" GSM carriers. Posted from my XT1080M
  • Congratulations. The moto g was my first unlocked gsm phone. I used it to test the world of unlocked and vanilla android on T-Mobile. Haven't left either. You won't regret it. Especially the LTE one with SD card support and gyroscope for photosphere Posted via Android Central App
  • Well T Mob might or might not work. I travel by car for business a lot through rural areas, so I will try AT&T prepaid first, since I have an AT&T land line to port. Also, I really like the features on the Droid Maxx and X (active display) but can't wait for the 2nd Gen X, so the G LTE looked like the best compromise. Also, they dropped $20 on Amazon overnight.

  • Is it better than Touchless Notifications? https://www.androidcentral.com/e?link=https2F2F...
  • Hope these features come sooner than later to stock Android, too.
