The updated Moto X (2014) includes the ability to quickly launch your flashlight with a “chop twice” action. Just chop twice to turn on the lights, then chop twice again to turn them off. It looks pretty similar to the twist-to-launch camera feature introduced with the original Moto X, which actually turned out to work pretty great. Hopefully this new one is just as useful.
For now the update is limited to the Pure Edition handset sold straight from Motorola, but we’re expecting other Moto X models to get the same improvements before too long. The new chop gesture might even make the jump to lesser Moto smartphones as well, though for now we’re looking forward to trying it out on the flagship Moto X.
