Motorola’s Touchless Control gets updated with ‘What’s up’ hotword

Motorola is hip. You want proof?

Touchless Control, Moto’s ‘always listening’ app, just updated with an awesome feature. If you have a new notification, you can now say “What’s up?” or “Read notifications” and your phone will read your notifications aloud.

Keep in mind that if you have multiple new notifications, it will read all of them, not just the most recent. Kudos to Motorola for adding functionality to an already awesome app.

They also added end-of-speech detection, allowing users to voice type normally, rather than saying “period” after every sentence.

Be sure to update if you have a compatible device!
