    I hope. It's the biggest feature for my Moto X and the most used.

    I had seen reports that it will not... That Moto Assist is a Moto X exclusive.....

    Hopefully the rumors/reports are wrong.... Not that I'd use it all that much but be neat to have....

    It's a Motorola app isn't it? Can't we just download it if we want it?

    That is a good point. I believe this can be added to all Moto devices if it doesn't come standard.

    Not without some hackery, no. It will not come stock...nor should it.

    It's a Nexus, guys.

    True but it is also a Motorola which Motorola Assist works with there devices. So I would be interested to see how this would work.

    I think some hackery could be done. I'm also curious to see if it's an AMOLED screen or not. Then we can see if we can get active notifications hacked on as well!

    Moto features need software as well as hardware on the phone. No other phone has them and I'd be very surprised if Nexus did.

    I had the Droid Maxx when I was with Verizon and I had moto assist which I frequently used, especially for music. I now have the S5 from Sprint but I really miss moto assist. I'm waiting for the Nexus 6 to come out, I'm going back to Motorola.

    I'm still unclear weather or not the N6 will support the "always listening" feature of the X. The way my pro/con list has shaken out between the X and the Nexus this will be the deciding factor for me. I'm ready to order as soon as I'm sure about this.

    From the Google's Android - 5.0 Lollipop page (you have to scroll down and click "See all features"):

    OK Google

    Easy access to information and performing tasks

    Even if your screen is off, you can say "OK Google" on devices with digital signal processing support such as Nexus 6 and Nexus 9
    Talk to Google on the go to get quick answers, send a text, get directions and more

    ejordan, thanks! I totally missed that. So it's looking like the Nexus for me. I would still like to be able to customize the phrase like the X but that's not a deal breaker. Thanks again.

    It's no trouble! And as for custom phrases, I just came across this (it's for the N5 but should work with the N6) How to Make Google Now Obey Custom Voice Commands—Even Without Root

    The article is three months old so hopefully all the info is still current but if not I wouldn't give up on looking around because it sounds like there's still some workarounds, even if they're not as simple as they should be haha. The Commandr app they mention seems worth looking into as well

    Edit: Whoops nevermind, it looks like they're custom commands that you say after "Ok Google". Sorry, hopefully there's software updates in the future that let the phase be something else.

    My boss loaded Lollipop onto his N5 yesterday and OK Google worked. Moto Assist is available via Google Play for all Moto phones.

    Can you confirm that the Nexus 6 is included?

    IIRC, Motorola Assist is only officially available for these devices:
    • Motorola DROID MINI
    • Motorola DROID ULTRA
    • Motorola DROID MAXX
    • Motorola Moto X (1st gen)
    • Motorola Moto G (1st gen)
    • Motorola Moto E
    • Motorola Moto X (2nd gen)
    • Motorola Moto G (2nd gen)
    • Motorola DROID TURBO

    Moto Assist wont work on nexus 6 because Assist depends on some Motorola Service to work which is not included on the nexus 6.

    These services are only included on Motorola X,G E and Droid released in the past year or so... so Nope it wont work on older phones as well.

    All reviews said NO. It does not have nor use Moto Assist.

    I assume that IF you were able to even download the app from Playstore, it might conflict with Lollipop/N6 as it already has "Ambient Display" notifications. But guess someone will know for sure when we all get our Nexus 6 phones soon

    Unfortunately I cannot. I just remember reading something a while back saying that if you had a current Moto phone, Moto Assist would be available. I would assume that future Moto phones would be included but then again, this is Nexus. I guess I should've thought about that more. My bad.

    They already said it is an amoled screen when they announced it plus it's on the website plus in reviews
