    Both. Any time you leave the app however you do it. It only happens if you have a route going though.

    Add another annoyance to the modern Moto or Oreo not sure which. If you are locked down with fingerprint by corporate policy not only does Google now voice commands not work from lock screen , clicki g respond to a call with a text on the lock screen even though it looks like it accepts it I don't see the text I. The message log.
    You can't do hands free voice commands, which is a step forward for lock screen security but a step backwards for hands free interaction of keep having to unlock screen.
    Anybody else notice this
    I think there should be a standard list of what is allowed on a lock screen

    That's a Google Security policy. Nothing you can do about it, except post on the Google Support site and see what Google engineers have to say.

    Can you use Smart Lock options with your employer's Group Policy? On Body Detection, Trusted Place, Trusted Voice, Trusted Device? That's how Google allows us to use Hands Free commands and Voice Actions with an active lock screen. I use a lock screen and Trusted Device and that unlocks my phone automatically. I use Trusted Voice and Trusted Place on my wife's phone and that unlocks her phone when using Voice Commands.

    Previous to Moto z2 it worked with trusted voice , face etc but Moto z2 seemed to be more restrictive. Yet iPhone x let's you use a trusted face on lock screen with same lock screen policy , it seems to be part cell phone vendor part Google policy

    So what Trust options does the Z2 have? There has to be more than one.

    Yep, same Trust Settings as the Turbo 2, Z Force and Z Play. Should be able to find one of those that would work to do the job.

    Once a fingerprint policy is applied , voice , face , Google now all etc stay being the lock screen until you use your fingerprint.

    So you can't use Google now to send a text from the lock screen or tell Google maps to navigate to from the lock screen. The only thing that works from the lock screen is answer calls and dismiss alarms

    I believe that's your employer's Group Policy being applied. That's not how.my phone works without corporate security rules. If they pay for the phone, or use a BYOD policy, you are at their mercy with their security policies

    Seems like newer models of Android are more restrictive then older ones and iPhones

    Not really, what you are describing sounds like your employer has placed extra security restrictions that are not part of a stock Moto phone.

    But other people with the same policy that have older androids and current iPhones , the policy effects are less restrictive so empirical evidence seems to say the newer Android phones and specifically Moto's z2s interpret the policy to be more restrictive
