    So.... What "name" have you given your phone when setting up your Moto Voice?

    I thought about calling mine R2 (how original) ....
    or H.A.L.

    Can you use Moto Voice if you use Google i.e. "OK GOOGLE"?

    Yes. It's the google actions PLUS some other features. You can program it to have a custom "launch" phrase.

    My understanding is that the primary difference is the customization ability and the Moto version of always listening uses almost no power where the always on for Now uses a lot more power. I haven't set it up yet. Was trying to decide what I wanted to call it.

    Ok thanks just a little confused since they both seem to do the same thing. I've always used Ok Google but wouldn't mind trying Moto Voice but don't want to deactivate OK Google. Unless you can have both on? Clear as mud.

    I think it's basically using Google Now and adding a layer on top of it. I think it's all the same API and it's built to enhance it. You can always try it then deactivate it.

    Moto Voice does more than Google's OK Google. First, it's more battery efficient. Second, it works with the display turned off. Third, it adds a bunch of voice commands that OK Google does not support. Anything that is not one of the special commands it just passes on to the Google search app.

    So, it gives you all of the function and power of Google's solution and then some.

    I say "ok Turbo 2" works really well.

    Sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDcard!

    So do you all have Ok Google active along with the Moto voice? If so, which do you use? I just set up the Moto voice and whatever I ask it uses and references Google. Seems repetitiously redundant, no?!

    I made min white with blue highlights and teflon.

    I say, "Help me out R2" for mine. I guess we think alike.

    As I said - yes, it pretty much is. The only thing that I do not know about is the Google search app's ability to do context search by voice for successive searches.

    "Ok Google, how old is Barack Obama?"
    "OK Google, where was *he* born"? (Google remembers that "he" is "Barack Obama" from the previous search.)

    I never tried those sorts of successive searches with Moto Voice. (I use Moto Voice very, very infrequently. I find voice control of phones when you can type instead when you are in the company of other people fairly rude. But, that's just me. I only use voice control when I am in the car driving, basically, and it still happens rarely.)

    I've found in the past that using a phrase with about 5 syllables is better than something shorter to avoid false activation when you (or someone else nearby) says something similar. I'd never use something as simple as Hal.
