All you have to do is to install the update and simply ask the magical words: “What’s up?” or “Read notifications”, but only after you have already activating Touchless Control by saying “OK Google Now.” The app will actually read aloud all notifications, according to the language that you have previously selected.

And Motorola is also promising a better “end-of-speech detection,” which should change those annoying long pauses after giving a voice command to your handset into improvement accuracy and response time.

As we have already told you from the start and as the change log mentions as well, this new Touchless Control update is compatible only with Android 4.4 KitKat OS, which means that it is available not only on the Motorola Moto X, but also on Droid Ultra, Droid Mini and Droid Maxx. So, if you are on of those who meet these criteria, don’t hesitate to download the latest Touchless Control version.
