Moto X Voice Commands

Moto X
Once your Moto X is trained to recognize your voice, you can use several different voice commands and it does not need you to touch your phone. Simply say the command together in one phrase and Touchless Control will process the command and does the relevant thing.

To enable Touchless control, open the notification panel by swiping down from the top of your Moto X screen, and select the option Touchless Control. You will then enter the Touchless Control setup and then train the Touchless control with your voice. First and the most important command you got to keep in mind is “ok google, help me” - say this to open a set of commands you can say to the phone.

First, you need to train your phone in a quiet place and then the phone will recognize you when you speak either in a quiet place or in a noisy place. This is achieved through a software called crystal talk. Some of the commands are
  • Call “contact” - to make a phone call to a person, replace the contact in the command with the name of the person.
  • Navigate to “location” - to get directions to the location name given in the command.
  • Text “contact” - to send a message to a person, replace the contact in the command with the name of the person.
  • Remember “meeting tomorrow at 2″ - to set reminders
  • Schedule “an appointment on the 21st of this month at 3 p.m.” - Schedule appointments
  • Play “song” - Play music & movies
  • Set “alarm for 6 in the morning” - Set alarms
  • Open “calendar app” - Opens google calendars application
  • Post to Google + “blah blah…” - Post Google+ update
  • Goodnight - Turns on the Sleeping do-not-disturb mode in Moto Assist
  • Take a selfie - This will turn on the front-facing camera and count down from three.
  • Talk to me - Will read incoming calls and texts for half an hour.
  • Take a photo - Starts the rear camera.
You can ask questions like “what is the temperature today?”, “where is googleplex?”. This machine has the answer to most of your questions.

The “What’s up?” command reads out aloud the notifications from the notification bar. After reading the items are marked read. If the “what’s up?” command did not work as expected, try saying “Read Notifications” command.

If you are worried that your notifications are being read aloud when you are out hanging with others, you can reduce the detail of reading the notification by activating the Notification details and turning off the setting. The Moto X’s Touchless Control can be useful when your hands are busy or when you want to remember something important and you are in a situation of need of information.

Many examples are there when the Touchless control will be useful. Some of them are while driving a car, when you want to find your phone, to set reminders when your hands are busy with some other work or when you are in a position to not to be able to use your hands to touch the phone and mostly will be useful for blind people.
