Motorola updated their Touchless Control app this evening to include a feature that allows you to ask your phone “What’s up?” in order to hear what your current notification situation is like. By asking “Ok, Google Now, what’s up?” your phone will read the time followed by notifications back to you, letting you decide if any are important enough to act upon. You can see the new feature in action through the video below.

The update also enhanced end-of-speech detection to improve accuracy and fixed bugs.

The update is live right now on Google Play, so if you own a Moto X, DROID ULTRA, MAXX, or Mini, be sure to download it. 

What’s New

– Enhanced end-of-speech detection for improved accuracy and faster responses
