Motorola Assist now supports hands-free SMS responses while driving

The Motorola Assist app received a nice update on Monday, adding a feature that lets you respond to text messages by voice while driving. The contextual software, available on the Moto X and latest Verizon Droid lineup, could already detect when you were driving. In addition to the hands-free SMS responses — the app could already read incoming messages aloud — this new version can also automatically open the music app of your choice as soon as it determines you’re driving; helpful if you want to stream tunes in the car over Bluetooth or a wired connection. Android Central notes that driving detection is improved in this version as well.
