Motorola Touchless Control App Can Unlock Your Phone By Speaking Out Your PIN
Gabriel Roşu / 4 years ago
Have you ever wanted a device that will listen to you even when it is locked? There are times when your phone’s voice commands are useless as you still have to unlock your device before using them, and that is not at all possible if you are doing something that requires both of your hands. But look no further, because apparently Motorola has recently introduced a new update to its Touchless Control app over on Google Play, which would ensure that your smartphone will be more versatile even when it is in a locked state, as extra Google Now commands should now be able to jive with your smartphone when it is idle and locked.
You will be able to unlock your PIN simply by speaking it out, and Touchless Control will do all the rest. A new tone is also introduced when you say “OK Google Now.” Apparently, this particular update does seem to be made available only to devices that have Android 4.4 KitKat as the operating system of choice, which pretty much rules out the recent DROID family, at least until Motorola and Verizon do something to remedy that situation soon.
Unlocking your phone using your PIN is not really practical, especially in a crowded place. I mean you have a PIN for a reason, otherwise you would just say something like “Phone Unlock”. We hope that Motorola will update the feature soon and maybe add a feature to unlock the phone with a specific phrase rather than use your PIN.
