Motorola pushed an update out for the Touchless Control app for the various supported Moto devices tonight. The update adds quite a few little things that are pretty cool. In addition to the usual bug fixes listing, the update also offers up enhanced end-of-speech detection for improved accuracy and faster responses.
While those are nice, it is the two new voice commands that were added that are really interesting. Now you can say “What’s Up” and “Read notifications”. The new voice commands are fully supported U.S. English, Spanish and Italian. While it is in beta in other languages. To clarify a little, you still need to say “OK, Google Now” prior to the new commands, so “OK, Google Now, What’s Up” or “OK, Google Now, Read notifications.”
What is a bit more interesting, and some what irritating, is that the updated commands are only supported on Android 4.4 KitKat. Which leaves a possibility for some users to not bea able to use it yet until their device gets updated. Obviously the app is only available legitimately for the Moto X, DROID ULTRA, DROID MAXX and DROID Mini.
