Motorola has released a major update for its Motorola Assist app

1 min read

Motorola does seem to be on a roll at the moment, having made sure that their range ofMoto devices would be able to enjoy some Android 4.4.3 KitKat goodness, not to mention the 2013 DROID collection of smartphones skipping the Android 4.4.2 bus and jumping straight to Android 4.4.3 KitKat, too. Why not cap off this good news with a “trinity”, with word that the Motorola Assist app has been updated to deliver the ability to announce incoming phone calls as well as text messages to the end user? This latest update to the Motorola Assist app, as mentioned earlier, has one major difference after being updated, where all you need to do is provide Motorola Assist with your home address, turn on the “Talk to me” feature, and you can start taking full advantage of the app’s announcement capability.

Hot on the heels of Motorola announcing its Android 4.4.3 update plans, the company has even more good news to share with its customers. Motorola today began pushing an update to its Motorola Assist app. The big new feature is that when you’re at home, Assist can announce your incoming calls and text messages. After updating your app, you simply give Motorola Assist your home address, enable the “Talk to me” feature and you’ll be good to go. Also included with this Motorola Assist update is improved driving detection, which is achieved using the phone’s microphone to detect vehicle and road sounds. Motorola has included some unspecified bug fixes as well. Ever since it launched the Moto X last year, Motorola has been pretty on the ball when it comes to updates, both of the Android OS and app varieties. That trend is continuing this week, and its awesome to see Motorola continue to show its customers love with new software goodies. If you’ve got a Motorola Assist-compatible handset, you can grab the updated Motorola Assist app using the Google Play link below.
