The premiere software addition that Motorola has put on the Moto X and new DROID lineup is Touchless Control. The voice command options tie in deeply to Google Now, but also add options on top of Google's offerings; and today, the Touchless Control app was updated with a nice new way to easily have your notifications read aloud...

"...all compatible Motorola devices have KitKat updates available..."

Really? I just checked my Maxx, and it is on v. 4.4 with the response that the phone is up-to-date when I manually attempt to download software updates.

Edit: Technically KitKat is v. 4.4, so the statement is probably correct. I was looking for v. 4.4.2, which is not yet available for the new Droids.

lol, Yeah, you sorta needed to read that line a second time. I got the update for my Moto X but have yet to use it. I think I pretty much use all of Motorola's supplemental software on a daily basis so the fact that they frequently update it is really awesome! I love all the additional features and fixes they keep coming out with.

I just retired my Droid Ultra for a Note 3 two days ago, and this is the one feature that I am finding I miss the absolute most.
