Taking Screen Shots with Moto Voice

Holding the power button and the volume button down simultaneously is the usual method for taking a screen shot. However, frequently I don't get the button presses synchronized, meaning I don't capture the shot, only end up lowering the volume.

With my Turbo I've taken to using Moto Voice to take screen shots. I use my catchphrase, "Obey Me Droid Turbo", then I say "Zap my screen" and the phone takes the screen shot. Very easy, very reliable.

I'm wondering if the Moto Force Z has this same voice command? Can someone try it and confirm?

Not working for me. Seems as if the only thing moto voice is doing is opening Google voice with a custom launch phrase. Although I think google voice is a very strong feature and I'm working on learning more ways to use it, moto isn't doing anything special with voice commands.
