New Motorola Moto X has a new Motorola Connect browser extention service
Probably the guys from Motorola had some desire to spare a few secrets around the new Motorola Moto X for the event today in New York but unfortunately someone at their headquarters did not manage to help himself and put online a new extension called Motorola Connect which went live in the Chrome Webstore last night. It is also currently available for installation but it will not help because it can be used only by the new Motorola DROID MAXX, also the Motorola DROID Ultra, which is seemingly the new Motorola flagship, and Motorola DROID Mini – the smaller but equal in power version of the DROIDs, and, of course, for the new phone that’s about to be announced today Motorola Moto X. It would only work on them so until they are up for sale you can’t really use it. However, what does it do? Well, it provides the users of the latter DROIDs and the users of Moto X to see phone calls and text on the desktop browser of their Chromebook laptop, using Chromebook’s new and fancy notification system. You can even reply to texts but calls still need to be addressed from the phone itself. It should work wherever you are and no matter what network you are using.
Of course, long-exposed-to-Google-services users will know that this duplicates some of the functions of the Google Voice and Google Hangouts (if you have connected your GV number to Hangouts, anyway) and some other third-party apps and software. But at least you will be able to see the notifications without the need to open the rather uncomfortable web interface of Google Voice, which is a nice plus.
Overall Motorola is ready to show-off with their new device and some of its functions and it seems that there will not be probably any other hardware to be announced at the event except the new Motorola Moto X. There is plenty to be said and commented on the new Motorola Moto X but we will leave our other comments for after the official release.
