Motorola Brings Touchless Control App To Google Play For Droid Owners

Motorola-Touchless-Control-app Motorola’s Touchless Control app, which allows you to control your smartphone using only your voice, is now available to download from Google Play. You can use it to set alarms, get directions, find answers to questions, “or do just about anything” — without having to touch your phone at all.

There is one caveat, however. The app’s only available on the Moto X, the Droid Ultra, the Droid Mini, and the Droid Maxx. Touchless Control is one of the features Motorola seemed most proud of when it showed off the new Moto X earlier this month. It’s like the company’s own version of Siri, and it allows you to perform all kinds of tasks just by talking to your phone. You don’t even need to press a button to activate it — you just say “OK Google Now.”

Touchless Control is available for U.S. English, U.S. Spanish, Canadian, French, and Brazilian Portuguese users with one of the Motorola devices listed above. It’s a shame it’s not available to other handsets, too, but hopefully it won’t take long before the APK is available.

In the meantime, you can try out Open Mic+, a third-party app that aims to bring Touchless Control to all Android-powered smartphones running Jelly Bean. It’s voice-activated, just like Motorola’s own app, and it offers a lot of the same functionality. It’s also completely free.
