I saw the "Ok Google" from anywhere feature and was very excited and impressed. Upon its release I click on my ok Google now settings to enable the feature. However I was in for a rude awakening and immediately became jealous. The neat "Ok Google" feature was not available for my device. I have a Moto X how can this be? The Moto X is the Nexus experience (in my opinion) and some (which is why I chose it over the Nexus). So out of jealousy I looked into the feature to see if I was actually missing anything or just excited for a new Google feature. I quickly realized after a "Ok Google Now" search my feature was actually better minus the extra word "Ok Google Now". See on my Moto X I really can activate Google search from anywhere even when my screen is locked, which gives it a leg up on Google's implementation. "Ok Google" is a great step but it isn't the Moto X way which is still my preferred method. What do you all think?

Re: "Ok Google" from anywhere not impressive
Touchless Controls is in a different class than Google's "OK Google" anywhere*. Anywhere... As long as the screen is on and unlocked.
I'm confused about your excitement over a feature that's a subset of a feature we've been able to enjoy on the Moto X from day one. Were you unaware of Touchless Controls, or did you think the new feature was going to be something advice and beyond Touchless Controls?
