First gen Moto X and trio of Droid devices getting support for Moto Voice

Moto Voice

Motorola announced an upgraded version of touchless controls known as the Moto Voice along with the new Moto X. At the time, the feature was only limited to the handset, but Motorola has changed that now by bringing support for older devices such as the first gen Moto X as well as the Verizon Droid Ultra, Droid Mini and the Droid Maxx from last year.

The Play Store listing mentions that the Moto 360 smartwatch is now supported with the feature as well, which is good news. Customers of 2013 Motorola devices will be disappointed to know that the update doesn’t enable the ability to set a custom launch phrase, which is only limited to the 2014 Moto X. But we are hopeful that the company will bring support for the feature with subsequent updates.

Using the Moto 360, customers can say something like “find my phone” for the paired smartphone to start ringing. This is helpful if you’ve lost your device somewhere in the house and are having trouble finding it. While the update doesn’t carry all the bells and whistles of Moto Voice, it’s commendable of Motorola to introduce support for older devices.
