    From Paul from Nexus in the thread I mentioned:

    Here's the latest information I have:

    This is not a hardware issue. There are several reasons you may not see Google Now which I'll outline below.

    1. Double-check if Google Now is on
    It's possible you skipped turning on Google Now while you were initially setting up your device. See*this help center article*for instructions on activating Google Now.

    2. Check Google Location Reporting
    Launch the Google Settings app and select Location, then look under Google Location Reporting. If this option isn't available to you then Google Location Services and Google Now are not offered in your geographic region.

    3. Google Now may be disabled by your Google Apps administrator
    If you're using a Google Apps account your admin may not have activated Google Now. Please speak with your Google Apps administrator about activating Google Now.

    4. Google Now isn't working with your Google Apps (free edition) account
    Some people in this thread have discovered that if their administrator toggles location services off and on again in the Google Apps administration control panel this clears up the problem on your device.

    If none of the above scenarios apply to you, we'd appreciate it*if you would long-press in any open section of your home screen and then select Help & feedback >*Send feedback. When sending a feedback report it would be very helpful if you:
    Include a detailed description of the problem.
    Scroll to the bottom of the feedback tool and change the User Account setting from Anonymous to your email address.
    When you send feedback through that method it helps us gather all these sorts of reports in one place, as well as some data useful for us to diagnose issues such as this.

    It's for Google Now mainly but maybe there's something here you can follow up with?

    I've tried all of these great suggestions and it's still not working for my Moto X.

    I found the motorola manual for the moto x with the kit kat upgrade and this behavior is how it is described in the manual (i.e. they say tap the microphone in Google Now to do voice search). I suspect that they disabled it so it doesn't conflict with Touchless Control.
    Could you please point me to where you found this?

    With the help of moto support my issues have been resolved! I cleared the all the data in my Google search app and retrained the touchless control. Its now working flawlessly. The lockscreen was user error.Because I had no lock at all not even a slide it wasnt really a lockscreen it was just my active notification screen, once I put on a slide lock I now have my camera icon and beautiful album art. Back to being a happy Moto X fanboy

    Try this if you haven't yet

    Settings>Accounts>Google>Search>Google Now> on

    Settings>Accounts>Google>Location> on

    And on same page set to "battery saving" mode. If on "Device" mode it doesn't work.

    Anyone having issues having Motorola Assist activating the Meeting mode even when they have scheduled events in their calendars where they are shown busy?

    Posted via Android Central App
    Assist only constitutes meetings when their are guest apart of the event.

    I don't think Google Now hotword is supposed to work on the Moto X. Here is the Verizon Moto X (with Kit Kat upgrade) manual from Motorola's site

    https://motorola-global-portal.custh..._17618001a.pdf

    On page 13 about Google Now, it clearly indicates that you need to tap the microphone button to initiate voice search. Of course, you can always initiate with Touchless Control (ok google now). Perhaps they disabled it to avoid conflict between Google Now's (Ok Google) and Touchless Controls' (Ok Google Now).

    My phone tends to go black for a few seconds after unlocking from active notifications. Very annoying. Other than that, no issues

    Yay, they added hangouts to Motorola connect. Motorola connect and assist are also being pushed through the play store! I'm loving the backbone we're receiving from this phone. They really want to make this their iPhone. An android phone for the masses.

    I wish it worked though or there was a way to continue searching with the hot word while in Google now. Does the manual explain how to change the phrase "Ok Google Now"?

    I've been able to use, "OK Google Now" just like I used to use, "OK Google" on my Galaxy Nexus.

    Open Google Now and try:
    "OK Google Now, who is Barack Obama"
    Answer
    "OK Google Now, who is his wife?"
    Answer
    "OK Google Now, who are his kids?"
    Answer
    "OK Google Now, how old is he?"
    Answer

    You get the idea. Basically, I think in best interest of not being confusing and keeping the phrase uniform across the Moto X, everything that should be, "OK Google" is "OK Google Now".

    Mine didn't do this at all until yesterday. Two days ago I sideloaded GEL, yesterday I enabled ART. After this combo I noticed the lagging if unlocking from active notifications. If I hit the power button it's instant, it doesn't do it consistently though as some times it works good sometimes not. I switched back to Dalvik but hasn't cured it. If you're also running GEL maybe that is the issue?

    I guess it seems wiser to stay on 4.2.2 right? IF I buy new, will it come w/ 4.2.2 or kit kat?

    Mine works that way too. I was just surprised that they disabled Google Now/Search hotword launch. Google Now/Search and Touchless Controls are separate. I expected that with Kit Kat, I could turn off Touchless Controls and still have Google Now be able to do voice search with the hotword (like any Kit Kat device does).

    The first thing I noticed after installing kitkat is that the haptic feedback on the unlock screen has been toned down significantly.

    There are several people on Google plus reporting no change in behavior with battery... They also reset the device after the update.

    With a large update like this some people prefer to do a full factory reset.

    for those with the lag on the lock screen turn off the lock screen security, check and then back on.
