The Moto X will have an always-on active listening experience, according to a leaked video for Canadian wireless carrier Rogers. What’s more, the phone will know your intentions when you turn it on to take a photo. Indeed, both features have been rumored for some time now so it’s nice to see them in action.

The video, which appears to be aimed at giving customers a brief overview of features, also shows a new approach to Google Now and notifications.


We like the idea of our phones listening for us to ask it commands such as weather, calendar, navigation, and other Google Now commands. We’re also fond of the manner in which alerts are broadcast or how notifications appears.

It’s unclear if these are specific to the Moto X experience or if they are part of a newer version of Android. With but a few weeks to go before the rumored launch we should find out in short order.

Suffice it to say, this video was not meant for public consumption just yet and had since been marked private. Thankfully, others have already ripped and republished the video.  Here it is…for now, at least.
