The Moto Hint, Motorola’s discreet little Bluetooth nub, has finally arrived for us to take for a full spin. After getting to check out the Bluetooth earbud during the press festivities for the Moto X (2nd gen) launch, we have been dying to get a real unit in house for real testing on our own. That time has come.
As a recap, the Moto Hint is a Bluetooth earbud that when paired to your phone, allows you to not only take and make calls, but also completely control your phone (assuming you have a new Moto X). Thanks to the power of Moto Voice in the Moto X, the Moto Hint (that’s a lot of Moto) works voice action magic without the need to ever touch your phone or even have it near. You could put your phone in a bag, but still listen to turn-by-turn directions, play music from your favorite band, check recent notifications, find answers to trivia questions, decide if you need to wear a coat today, call the car dealer to make an appointment, or find out the time. It’s actually pretty cool.
In the video below, we will walk you through an overview of the features (battery life, charging, price, colors, etc.) before diving into the voice action sequences. Be sure to check it out and then drop any questions in the comments.
