Motorola this afternoon updated its Assist app on Android to version 2.2.35 with a handful of changes. Motorola Assist already offers a variety of features that improve handsfree capabilities of the Moto X (and other devices), and this update adds another very useful one.

With this update, the app can now detect when you are at home and read incoming calls and texts aloud. This means that you can come home, sit your phone down, and have all incoming calls and texts read aloud to you. This means that you won’t have to worry about having your phone right next to you all the time.

The update also includes the normal bug fixes, in addition to improving driving detection using audio. Earlier this year, the app was updated with the ability to reply to texts while driving. It’s important to note, however, that the majority of these features only work on the Droid Ultra, Droid Mini, Droid Maxx, and Moto X.

  • When you’re at home, Assist can now announce callers and incoming text messages
  • Improved driving detection using audio
  • Bug fixes!

You can download the update from the Play Store now.
