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.
