Edge + Hands free text reading and reply

2020-05-16, 21:36 PM

Just got the new Edge + and like it so far.  However, I can not figure out how to get it to read texts while driving.  My old Z2 Force had a Moto Voice option that the Edge doesn't seem to have.  I used that feature all the time and it was a huge safety feature.  Does anyone know if it's possible to do this with the Edge and if so how.

 

Any info is appreciated,

 

Thanks

Did you ever get this figured out?

 

When Motorola "dropped out" of the flagship segment, I switched to Samsung. I truly miss Moto Actions/Moto Voice, and particularly was sad to not have the hands-free texting it offered. I ended up paying for an app out of Play store that worked really well; but it's been retired & has been acting up recently (reads texts but doesn't accept voice command to reply to them). I've been intrigued about switching back to Motorola and giving Edge+ a try - but the hands-free texting is a MUST for me.

Agreed. Loved that feature. Huge safety feature. So far no response from support. Do you like The edge plus but missing that feature is a huge minus.

Motorola stop using the Moto Voice / read my text messages while driving feature. 3 years ago, if I can remember I believe the Moto Z2 Force was the last phone with the feature.
