One of the great features of the Motorola Moto X is Touchless Control. Touchless Control allows me to awaken my Moto X phone to make calls, play music among other things through voice commands without a need to touch my phone.
I re-trained my Moto X to OK Blue Now! I have had others try and wake it and provide commands with no success after I trained it to my voice. The first part though is training Moto X Touchless Control to my voice. I can always retrain my Moto X Touchless Control by going to Settings> Touchless Control> Train Launch Phrase.
Now, the directions want me to say "OK Google Now", although there is a way to train the Moto X Touchless Control with other phrases or name in place of Google. My Moto X is trained with "OK Blue Now" and helps me personalize my phone a little more in making it all about Blue.
Training Touchless Control requires repeating the same phrase 3 times with the phone held out away from you. If I said it to loud or did not like the phrase being used, I would have to repeat it until the phrase is excepted 3 times. Once training has been completed, I received a prompt to try it out.
Here are 3 different commands I tried while the phone was in sleep mode with the screen black:
OK Blue Now - What the weather in Oklahoma
OK Blue Now set my alarm clock for Saturday 8 night
OK Blue Now navigate to Great Wold Lodge in Grapevine Texas
Each time I provided a command, my Moto X woke up and followed the command given. I have made phone calls this way while driving with my Moto X Bluetooth connected in my truck providing hands free dialing while driving!
Motorola has a list of commands on their website listed here. There are tips and more information on Touchless Control on their website.
