Motorola unveiled the Moto X flagship phone few weeks ago and among many innovative new features, one was touchless voice control. DROID line of devices are also the lucky ones to get the feature. However, to much surprise motorola has released the app on google playstore today.
Now, if you are thinking that you can get the Touchless Control without getting the Motorola devices, you are partially wrong. The touchless control app is only available for Moto X, and DROID devices. This selfishness can be explained by the fact that, Motorola uses two low power chips on its new X8 Computing system, know as natural language processors, which allow the device to keep listening all the time without draining out the battery.

The good news is that there is an apk file flying around which was expected once the app was launched on playstore. So if you want to play around with the app on any other device you can get the download here. However, beware that its not made for your device and performance and battery life may not be same as on Moto devices. Another alternative is Open Mic+ app which does similar stuff.
This move from motorola hints that, the Google company is trying to build more features into the app and instead of making the app inbuilt in the system images, a Google Play version will help push updates instantly instead of going through the whole tedious process of updating though carriers.
