Motorola Active Display and Motorola Assist are updated in the Google Play Store

Motorola Active Display and Motorola Assist are updated in the Google Play Store
Motorola posted some of the custom features on its handsets, in the Google Play Store as individual apps. This makes it easier and quicker for Motorola users to update them. On Thursday, two of the apps, Motorola Active Display and Motorola Assist, were updated. The pair are available for the Motorola Moto X, and Motorola DROID devices powered by the X8 chip.

The update to the Motorola Active Display honors the system vibration settings. You can turn vibration on or off by going from Settings -> Sound -> Vibrate on touch. It also offers the proverbial bug fixes. Active Display puts information on your screen allowing you to view it without waking up your handset which saves battery life.

The update for Motorola Assist includes support to troubleshoot drive mode audio issues when connected to Bluetooth, and meetings where you’re marked as "Available" will no longer trigger meeting mode. And of course, the update includes bug fixes. Motorola Assist arranges for your phone to read your text messages when you are driving, keeps your phone quiet during meetings (and will send an auto reply if you desire), and will keep your phone quiet while you sleep.

Both updates are now awaiting your entrance to the Google Play Store.
