Moto App
suggests actions to automate certain tasks based on how you use the phone. It allows you to automatically reply to texts when you're driving, set a custom launch phrase to ask Google questions, and provides you with battery friendly notifications at a glance.


What can Moto App do



  • Approach for Moto Display - reaching for the phone triggers the time and battery friendly notifications on the screen. See new content without having to unlock the phone.


  • Attentive Display - keeps the screen lit as long as you're looking at it.


  • Chop Twice for Flashlight - give the phone two quick "karate chop" shakes to turn on the built in flashlight. "Chop" again to turn it off.


  • Lift for Moto Voice - lift the phone and provide a command, get a discreet reply in your ear.


  • Twist for Quick Capture - give your wrist two quick flicks to access the camera; works even while the phone is locked.


  • To activate on any of these features, touch Apps Image > Moto > Actions > select the desired Action and toggle the switch at the top to the On position.



Set up a customized launch phrase to ask the phone questions, place calls, send text messages and more without having to unlock the phone.  Turn on Talk to Me to have the phone read text messages and tell you who's calling while you're driving or in customized places of your choosing.

  • Talk to Me - select Read text messages and/or Tell me who's calling.  The phone will announce callers and read text messages out loud when the phone detects you're driving.  Talk to me only announces callers or reads text messages from people in the address book on the phone. If the phone calls are not being announced or text messages are not being read, add the sender/caller to People in the phone.


  • Bluetooth - if the phone is paired and connected to a Bluetooth device, Moto App will learn the car’s Bluetooth and will automatically start drive mode when it senses the phone is connected to it. Use the Bluetooth device’s built-in call announce feature (if available) to handle incoming calls if the Bluetooth device supports this feature.


  • Driving - Moto App makes use of a number of sensors on the phone to figure out if you’re driving.  Specifically, we look at accelerometer and location data to determine if you’re driving.  Moto App doesn't know if you’re the driver or a passenger in a moving vehicle, and may sometimes think you’re driving when on a bus, train or riding a bike.  It may also take Moto App a few minutes to figure out that you’re driving.


  • Places - To have the phone announce callers and read text messages when you're not driving, set up a custom location.  Touch Apps Image > Moto > Settings > Voice > select Talk to me > select Add a Place.  Once you've located your desired location on the map, confirm to add the location.



Turn on Moto Display for battery friendly notifications that fade in and out while the screen is off to show you what's going on without having to unlock the device. Touch Apps Image > Moto > Display.
