Nexus devices running Android 5.0 will have a hands-free feature

Google is rumored to be rolling out to Nexus handsets, a hands-free feature similar to the Touchless Control capability available for the Motorola Moto X. With the latter handset, say "What's up?" or "Read my notifications," and the phone complies. We know that some Hands-free feature is coming, because "Hands-free" appears on the "Voice" menu for those Nexus devices running Android 5.0, where the primary language has been changed. Note, though, that for the moment there is no toggle switch or any feature to turn on or off. We expect that to change eventually.

As such, we don't know when the hands-free feature will be making its way to Nexus models. It could arrive at the same time that another pair of Moto X features comes to certain Nexus models.

One of those features is the Always On Voice Recognition that is coming to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. With this feature, the phone or tablet is always listening for the code that turns on Google Search, such as "Ok, Google." Another Moto X feature, Ambient Display, is also on the way to the same models. The feature lights up the screen when you pick your phone or tablet off of a desk. And it also lights up the screen whenever a notification comes in.

Thanks for the tip!
