    Default Moto X: Moto Assist not reading text messages while driving.

    I recently encountered this problem. My Moto Assist would always read my texts while I was driving. Now though it won't. Any fix for this? I went into the Moto Assist settings and the Talk to me box is checked.

    Mine won't work thru my car's Bluetooth and it's annoying. I can talk on the phone but not hear my texts or the answer if ask it something. I have a '13 Buick Enclave. Anyone know how to fix this?

    On the last update, I had to re activate the moto assist. Try checking all the options and make sure its turned on.

    For those of you asking how I fixed it, this right here is what I did. I went into the Moto Assist settings and manually checked the boxes and restarted my phone. It's been working well since then.

    Go into Motto Assist then driving. Hit link you see there for Bluetooth issues. Choose alternate. Has worked on every vehicle I have that it didn't work on before.

    Moto Assist... Driving... Arrow next to Talk to me... There will be a link at the bottom for Bluetooth issues. Click that. Pick bottom selection to use alternate audio channels. If it's not there you probably just need the newest update to Assist.

    Thanks! I went to settings first. Didn't realize I had to hit more to bring driving up. I'll try it tomorrow.

    I have both the Droid Turbo and 2014 Moto X after last updated neither will read messages over Bluetooth in my car i preferred the way assist was set up with the alternate channel

    Got my wife the Moto X specifically for the in-car texting (i.e. Moto Assist Driving Mode). As a Windows phone user, I assumed the experience would be similar - the phone interrupts whatever the current audio source is, lets you know a text has been received, and asks if you want to hear it.

    She has a 2014 GMC Terrain, with Intellilink (or MyLink in Chevy speak).

    The issue: Sometimes the audio program will be interrupted to announce the text and ask if you want to hear it - at other times it doesn't interrupt the audio. Radio source is XM.

    When playing with it yesterday, I couldn't get it to work at all unless the audio source was the phone. I turned the bluetooth setting in Moto Assist to alternate source. Still didn't work.

    Then today - sometimes it worked when on XM!!!! But not every time....

    Thoughts?????
