One of the most practical features on the Moto X has been the "Find my phone" voice command.  This

has been present since the original iteration of the device, and has saved me on many occasions.  In

fact, I can't even begin to count the amount of times I have used this. I have two pretty big faults: I'm

clumsy, and my memory is kinda wonky.  I could tell you what I was drinking 5 years ago on July 4th,

but if you ask me where I put my phone 5 seconds ago, lawd 'ave mercy.  Case in point:

I'm playing around with my phone the other day while waiting for Star Wars: Battlefront to load.  I put

down the phone and start beating up some rebel scum.  I look at the time and realize I have to walk the

dog before I start getting ready for work...and fast!  Oh, crap!  I have to leave in 20 minutes!  Ahhh!  Ok,

ok, ok....let's do this.  I walk the dog, shower, brush my teeth, and somehow remember to put on

underwear.  As I'm walking out the door, thinking "ha!  Take that, time.  Can't beat me today", I realize

I tempted fate a little too early because I realized that I didn't have my phone, but the thing that really

worried me was that I didn't have a clue where it was!  Darn nabbit!  Ok, trace yours steps.  No, wait,

slow down time first so you're not let.  Ok, ready.  Where did I see it last?  What did I do with it?  What

was I doing...ahhh!  Was this the rebel scum getting back at me?!  Then, I yell out, from my front door

"Hey, Computer" (that is the custom phrase I use to activate Moto Voice commands).  I hear the "bleep",

but can't quite trace where it came from, so I continued, "Find my phone".  "Bleep Bleep Bleep", the

phone said.  I found it in between the couch cushions, ran out the door, and got to work on time.  Without

Moto Voice, I would have easily been at least 10 minutes late.

This is just the most recent time that Moto Voice has saved my behind.  This thing comes in handy all

the time, mainly for finding the phone, but also for telling me what temperature it will be today when I'm

getting out of the shower and trying to choose what weather clothes are "weather appropriate" for that day,

(since it can be 65 degrees one day in Florida, and be 80 the next), or to set a reminder while I'm driving.

Whatever the case may be, I know one thing for sure: I will definitely forget where my phone is again, and

Moto Voice will definitely be there to save me again.
