Motorola Assist, the app that recognizes when its user is driving and turns on a limited interruption mode, has added the ability to respond to text messages with voice commands. Assist previously read messages aloud but didn't include a hands-free option to reply; the latest update uses speech-to-text to transcribe messages without having to take hands off the wheel or eyes off the road. Users of the Moto X and 2013 Motorola DROID Ultra/Maxx/Mini can download the app to use the new feature.
