    Does anyone know how to stop the Moto X from asking me if I want to listen to my text messages out loud every time? It does this every single time. I've turned off driving mode and it still announces the name of the person and asks if I want to listen to the text instead of just playing my notification sound.

    don't know if this is applicable, but did you uncheck the box shown a couple of pics down?

    I'm having the same issue and can't figure it out. And I tried both w/ and w/out the box checked in the photo mentioned (it is the Moto Assist talk to me feature). Any thoughts anyone?

    Does rebooting phone help?

    Nope, tried that. The only thing that works, is turning off Touchless Control in the settings. However, by doing that it turns off the whole "Ok, Google Now" functionality, which I want to work.

    Seems it should only be doing this while driving. The driving icon is working properly and disappears when I'm not driving but my calls and texts are still announced. Very annoying.

    Yeah, still having no luck. I may try calling Motorola directly. From what I've seen, nobody has a fix for this issue.

    I think I got it to stop by disabling the Motorola Assist Talk to Me service under All Apps. A temporary fix but it doesn't seem to affect anything else by disabling it.

    Kind of a pain, but so far it works. There needs to be a better fix.

    I have a different question but it is about text and touchless control

    I ask Google to text and I expected it to be touchless but how do I actually send it without touching ? I tried to ask but seems like it I not 100% touchless if I have to push send ?

    if you do this, does it work when it enters "drive" mode?

    Turned on assist yesterday and started having this problem shortly after. I'd assume clearing the cache on the assist app would reset it but I have no idea what would keep it from happening again.

    As someone mentioned disabling the app for Motorola assist talk to me works, but I'm not sure if that also disables this feature while driving.
