Motorola today updated the Touchless Control application that's found on the Moto X. The improved application accepts more Google Now commands without requiring users to unlock their phones first. According to Motorola, personal information, such as emails and messages, are still protected by the PIN code, but users can speak their PIN code to unlock the device via Touchless Control. The app also offers a new alert tone when users say "OK Google Now." This version of Touchless Control is available only to devices running Android 4.4. KitKat and up.

Cool feature, won't work for Ozzy

I wonder how well it would work if you are at an auction, or playing battleship. Plus, you have those annoying friends who will just shout out random numbers. I don't see any practicality for a feature like this. Zero.
Who the hell wants to say "^^ OK, GOOGLE NOW! ^^" ? So freakin' lame.
