Motorola's always-on voice control system is a little less special than it was a year ago, but it's still a neat feature. It's still got some room to grow, though.

Here's the changelog for the latest build.

  • Improved responsiveness for calling command, PIN code command, and YouTube
  • Improved performance when paired with Moto Hint
  • Bug fixes, including fixing a forced close

From my own completely unscientific tests, it does seem a little faster recognizing commands. That's one of the few issues you'll notice with Moto Voice—it sometimes takes a moment too long to kick into gear after you finish speaking. Probably something with the way it pipes the words into Google. At any rate, update your phone—it's good for you.
