The app did not stop due to an Android update! The app stopped working because of a sever issue. This affects many different phones on many different Android versions. There was no update that broke the MMS app.

The Sunset App designation just means that there will be no more app version updates. The problem we have again...like last year...is NOT with the app, its with the server that translates our voice into text.

sajokaz,



Thanks for the clarification.  While *I* am certainly not in a position to dispute what you're saying... MY PHONE had just received an update (I assumed it to be Android), and THEN my Motospeak stopped working (fully).  That's why I presumed that it was the update the caused the problem.



Your sunset explanation sounds right... that is, Motorola doesn't no longer intends to support/update the app... server/software/etc. 



MY POINT is, that I wish Motorola would reconsider because of Motospeak's popularity (with ME anyway wink)... and that there isn't any other headset out there that can really compete.  In this day and age, to have a product that is THE best (if not the ONLY) product/service is very rare.  Just hoping that Motorola-marketing will reconsider.

I got around it for now. I setup my Moto X with google now for voice texting. In the car with the Roadster connected voice Is through the Roadster. Out of the car it reads the text and acts just like Motospeak did. Yhe one advantage is I don't have to press the button on the motospeak, I just say OK Google Now To. Works better than Motospeak.  There are some good videos on Youtube.....

Found one bug in my above information. Apparently when the roadster is reading text the phone itself is silent. My office is above the garage and when the cars are in the garage the roadster stays connected to the phone in my computer room so if I get a text I don't hear it because the Roadster in the handling it. I have a Roadster in each car. I have to remember to turn them off when in the Garage.



My theory on the Moto speak problem stems from Google selling Motorola to Lenovo. In the transfer the server got axed. It was probably not a server by itself but a app hung on another server or on a server farm being transferred over to Lenovo. There may not be anyone in Motorola that can find it.....

That is very possible...I can see something like that happening.  Now if they can just find the guy that knows how to turn it back on.  sad
