If you own a Motorola Moto X, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx or Droid Mini and you have not tried the Motorola Connect app, you may want to head on over to the Play Store to give it a try. If you have already checked out the app, you will be glad to know an update is rolling out that adds a couple new features and overhauls the look and feel. Motorola Connect lets owners of the specific Motorola devices see and respond to text messages from their computer via a Chrome Extension to the Chrome Browser.
Motorola has updated the look and feel of the app. They have also modified it so that it is now located in the Apps Tray, which should make it a little easier to access. As far as new features, Motorola added a “Ring my phone” function which will be especially handy for those users who have misplaced their smartphone and could use a little help finding it.
The app is free, but as noted it only works on a limited number of Motorola devices running Android 4.4 KitKat. If you are just now trying the app out, be sure to also grab the Chrome Extension and install it on your computer.
