    I was wondering if anyone has been able to get their turbo to read texts while driving. I think I have it set up correctly. I do use handcent.

    Yep, mine does. You went to settings>Moto>assist to set it up, but it doesn't work for you? I use Hangouts for my SMS (a carryover from my Moto X days whose stock SMS app wouldn't handle group texts properly)

    Yes. The box is checked. Maybe I will switch to stock app and see if it's works.

    Tested mine tonight, using Textra, and it works just fine. It gave me the opportunity to reply back (by voice) as well. The next time I will try with my blue tooth ear piece.

    I have Bluetooth in my car and the texts do not come through. Instead the phone does an auto reply to all texts that come through. Very annoying.

    That's is the driving under assist. You can turn it off. Maybe its not. I thought it was there. The read messages option is.

    Did you check (as per post #2) to make sure it's set up to read?

    It doesn't read them over the Bluetooth is the problem. I turned off the auto reply and when I get a text on my old phone it would automatically go trough my blue tooth. Through the moto assist all that does is read them aloud not through my blue tooth so if my music is up I won't hear it
