    OK, we've all seen the Moto X's always-on voice command function advertised on TV and such...I'm wondering if this can control all aspects of the phone, and how well it does. Can Bluetooth/WiFi/GPS/etc be turned on with voice commands ("OK Google Now turn on WiFi")?

    I can see this being rather handy in the car. I usually forget to manually turn on Bluetooth when I'm in the car so I'd like to just turn it on via voice, then make calls with voice commands.

    As of right now, you cannot control hardware functions with the touchless control. This may be implemented in the future however

    Well, that's a bit of a bummer...

    Another one I just thought of. If you've got the phone locked with a PIN, does the always-listening voice command functionality still work?

    For example...I have my work email synced via Exchange, and the server forces my phone to have a PIN-lock. Would a forced PIN lockscreen disable the always-on listening?

    Yes.

    However if you have a Bluetooth device, you can add it to "trusted devices" which will autodisable the lock screen.
