    Sometimes I have to be holding the phone for it to recognize me. And if it's on a table a few feet away forget it.. I have to yell at it and even then it's hit or miss.

    And when I do get it to work there really isn't much feed back as to if it has taken my orders. And also a long lag..

    I'm on Lollipop..

    There is a little lag and sometimes it doesn't always pick up on my command so I would have to repeat myself. I don't think the processing power is their yet at least maybe the 808 and 810 snapdragon can address those issues. I think it's half gimmicky half useful for now but I'm still happy with my Moto X.

    I'll admit, I turned it off. I use Google Now all the time, but the Voice feature just seemed like an extra step.

    Moto Voice works pretty well for me. I use it quite often to send off text messages while I'm driving, and do simple tasks without picking up my phone.

    I had an OG Moto X for a year before I bought my 2014 a couple weeks ago, so I was already used to using it quite a bit.

    I like using it except it poorly recognizes me. What hot words are you guys using?

    It took a while to find something that worked well but was not false triggered in a crowded bar or restaurant. So far I've settled on "testing... one two three".

    "Hello Moto X" works for me for now at least. Try out a couple of different hot phrases and see what works.

    I've found that the latest version of Moto Voice is fairly buggy on Lollipop, at least for me. I've reported it to Moto and they told me others are having a similar issue and that they were looking at it.

    I've generally found it to be fairly responsive and helpful. It'd be nice to decrease the time it takes to pass of a query from Moto voice to Google now though.

    I believe that would be an issue for Google to solve. The part that is taking a while is Google recognizing what was said...at least in my case.

    So far not that great. It keeps going off when I have music playing on my stereo at my desk or in my car. What I mean is I'm not playing music from the phone or anything, but because it's listening when there is music playing in the room it randomly goes off asking me to "ask something".

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks..

    I've never had it go off when I don't want it to and usually gets it right.

    Is everyone here running lollipop? I upgraded out of the box so I never experienced it on kit kat. I think some things are broken.

    Yeah... try changing your launch phrase.

    I agree, there definitely seemed be some bugs here and there with lollipop. What I've observed:

    1) The camera twist to start is inconsistent.
    2) the camera will lock up after taking several pictures. Sometimes it doesn't though.
    3) attentive display seems to be broken
    4) the latest version of Moto Voice is inconsistent.

    Others in the Google play store and the Moto X forums have observed these issues as well. I've emailed moto about all of them.

    It is a real bummer if I had known lollipop would cripple the Moto X I would have seriously considered the Nexus 6.

    My post probably came across negatively, but I actually wasn't trying to paint a rain cloud over this phone. None of these issues is a deal breaker for me and I've been very pleased with many of its features and qualities.

    Mine is far from crippled. Not really crippled at all, actually. Only issue I have is slightly worse battery life, mostly due to GMail for some reason.

    As far as Moto Voice, it works pretty well. My only issue is my launch phrase "Ok, Jarvis" doesn't always work so I might try something different. I've never had it launch on it's own. There is some lag sometimes getting the words to spit out into Google Now.

    Looks like a Moto voice update got pushed out. We'll see if it fixed some of the issues.

    To be 100% honest I do not use ANY voice at all. I find it not to work well for most day to day tasks. I guess it could just be me!
