    ...and now it responds to "OK Moto".

    Did'ja know it'll work to tell Moto to 'Open (App Name)"? Just opened Gallery that way.

    After a few tries i was able to to train it to respond to "ok moto" but it wasn't nearly as responsive with that prompt, requiring me to say "ok moto" 2 and sometimes 3 times before it responded, so i just changed it back to ok google now.

    You will have pretty bad trigger accuracy and false wake ups, there is high probability that your device will wake up often without you triggering it, when you are in slight noisy environments or when your TV is running ..

    I name all my phones and tablets after crabs. I was hoping to train my phone to open with "OK, crabby patty..." but I guess my dream will have to wait.

    Guess what, guesswhat_567, for 3 days now *none* of your dire predictions have occurred...and using it can open any app, including Settings ( just compared my About phone info to one posted in another thread).

    I had started a thread when I got my saying I had trained " OK Motorola" and how it worked well.. Then it quit lol.. So I had to go back to OK Google now.. I hope this keeps working for you because I want something other than OK Google now.

    I am wondering when. The first update will hit touchless controls, since its an app and can be updated w out a system update..

    So far though the active notifications and touch less controls have been awesome, even in the baby stages of use...

    My phone was pretty spotty reacting to "Ok Google Now" so I changed it to " Ok Google". It took a few times to get the training down, but the response is much better, even when I'm in the car with the windows down and radio on.

    I tried to retrain it, but it wouldn't accept anything that didn't sound like "OK Google Now." How do you retrain it?

    I really want it to respond to "Computer" with a slight inflection at the end, like on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    Same here - not the "Computer" part - the can't retrain part. I tried retraining it last night to respond to "OK Google" instead of "OK Google Now", but it kept saying that it didn't think my command sounded enough like "OK Google Now". Maybe I'll try again - sounds like it took some folks several tries.

    added: Just tried it again - it kept wanting to hear "OK Google Now" and never recognized repeated attempts at "OK Google" and "OK Moto".

    Wondering how people are making this work.

    Patience, Grasshopper! It took 3 or 4 attempts to make it happy on the third confirmation step for me, but did accept "Ok Moto".

    Now I'll concede that it's often quicker to open an app the conventional way, but I get a kick outta the new stuff!

    Indeed. I'll have to try in the privacy of my home. Even though I shut my office door, I'm sure the muffled sound coming through the door sounded like a complete dork repeating the phrase - which is one reason I only tried a couple of times 8-)

    I saw this comment the day that you posted it thinking "what is he talking about? Maybe his is faulty" as I also trained mine to "ok, moto". Low and behold, yesterday and today it keeps randomly activating touchless controls when playing music or as it picks up noise. It went into driving mode and played music (as I programmed it) while it was just sitting on a counter lol Sucks as I have a hard time saying "google" unless I say it slowly. I don't know why, but it's just challenging for me to say it naturally lol

    Ya .. algorithm to detect the trigger phrase is tuned to work with OK Google now only for best performance ..changing it any other phrase will degrade the performance ..unless you get lucky like the OP

    I'm baaaack! And "Ok Moto" still doing just fine...in fact, while using the new "I'm feeling lucky" thingie in Google Play Music from my collection of tunes uploaded there a year or more ago, I noticed there was no Artist name on one of my songs, so...
    "Ok Moto"
    <ding>
    "Help me identify the artist on this song"
    Then I held the Moto X up to the crappy speakers on my laptop and hit Play...
    <ding>
    "That is "Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart"
    <ding>
    And it popped up a card for that song in the Music Store!!

    (Eckchually, I knew his name but wasn't sure how it was spelled!)

    Then I edited the entry in the playlist.

    Done.

    You can also just say "What song is this?".

    Yep, couldn't remember that phrase and was pleased when it made sense out of my question.

    Just an fwiw from someone who was having trouble re-programming the prompt command - I got it to work w/ OK Google. It took several tries, but it worked. I think I'll reprogram to Moto instead of Google. I seem to remember I had a beloved Motorola Slvr phone back in the dumb phone days (my favorite dumb phone ever, one reason I went with the Moto X when it came out). I believe that phone had some "Moto" jargon in the voice commands somewhere.

    I trained mine as it says with "OK Google Now" but when I say it it always wanted to add "now" before anything I asked so now I just say "OK Google" and leave off the "now" and it works great.
