Drive Mode

2019-08-14, 13:08 PM

Hi guys and gals.

 

I have a moto z3 play. Long time user of Moto something or another phones, and I love them. 

 

Lately, I have a minor annoying issue that I can't get to the bottom of. I've googled and searched all through my phone for settings that are responsible for this, but I can't seem to find it. 

 

While I'm driving, and when I'm running and using my Bluetooth headphones, my phone automatically reads out my text messages. Since I never know who I'm gonna be around or what sort of content might be in my messages, this makes me nervous. 

 

I've gathered it's related to drive Mode or Moto Assist( I think), but none of the steps I find online to access these to turn off or edit settings seem to work on my phone. 

 

I'm using ATT, but this is a phone I bought directly from Motorola.

Hi mwemaxxowner,

 

This is odd. Can you please check if Google Assistant is turned off (Google app > More > Settings > Voice > Voice Match > Toggle off Voice Match and all other options. Let me know. Thanks.

I just toggled it all off, but surely that shouldn't be necessary? I use OK Google extensively, especially while driving, and like to have the ability for it to work even while the screen is locked. 

 

I just re read my first post, and wanted to make sure part of it was clearer. When I'm driving, the phone is connected via Bluetooth to my truck. This is when it reads my messages aloud, and like I said while I'm out jogging connected to my wireless headphones. It also does it while I'm stationary connected to a different Bluetooth speaker. 

 

I've looked through my Bluetooth settings and don't see anything obvious.

Hi mwemaxxowner,

 

Hmm. Talk to Me is the only thing I could think of that can read messages aloud and automatic. Let's try resetting the Moto Voice (Settings > Apps > Moto Voice > Storage > Clear Data). Let me know. Thanks.

Under settings-apps I don't have a Moto Voice option, but I do have "Moto Voice for Alexa". I did clear the data for that just now and we'll see what happens the next time I get a message. I'm using a pair of Bluetooth headphones right now and about an hour ago I got a few messages that it read aloud automatically to me.

Hi mwemaxxowner,

 

Try toggling off the Headset in your Moto Voice > Talk to Me. When you're using a headset it will also announce incoming calls and texts. Let me know if that helps. Thanks.
