Yet another Motorola app has been added to the Play Store, but it's not as glamorous this time. MotoCare will now be kept up to date on all supported devices, and it's getting a new (slightly more descriptive) name – Motorola Help.

This app contains basic how-tos, tips, and support information. There is an option to call Motorola support directly, or start a chat session. That's more than you get with most OEMs. None of the functionality has changed with this update, but now Moto will have the option to tweak it as it sees fit.

Motorola Help is compatible with the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini, Moto X, and Moto G. It should update automatically to the Play Store version all on its own.

    Out of all the info/tutorials/in-your-face tips that have come on smartphones for many years, I've found Moto's to be less offensive and in some cases helpful.

      Agreed - I'm a week into my Moto X ownership and have to say I've been impressed both with the relevance & the lack of intrusiveness you get from the 'first time user'-type tips.

        Plus the fact that you can actually initiate a chat session with a Motorola employee right from the app.

          Oh shit I didn't know that. Granted I've never looked around in the app to begin with.
