Moto X white

Is your Moto X chock full of T-Mobile flavoring? If so, you'll want to fire that sucker up and check for an update, because Motorola has begun pushing some new software that you'll probably want to install as soon as possible. According to the changelog posted by Motorola, the T-Mobile Moto X's update brings with it several camera improvements, including better photo quality and focus. Other tweaks include enhancements to Touchless Control, voice quality and Motorola's data migration experience. The full changelog is as follows:

  • Camera – Improved Photo Quality: Improved capture of natural light (auto-white balance) and color accuracy for more precise exposure in outdoor and backlit scenes
  • Camera – Improved Focus: Faster touch to focus time and reduced unnecessary refocusing in low light conditions and scenes with continuous motion
  • Camera – Faster Switching: Shortened the time it takes to switch between rear and front-facing cameras, as well as transition between the viewfinder and the Gallery app
  • Enhanced Touchless Control: Increased accuracy and responsiveness when using Touchless Control, and added easier training of the “OK Google Now” trigger
  • Improved Motorola Migrate Experience: Improved transfer of content from an old Android phone to a new Motorola phone
  • Google Drive – 50GB Promotion: Added a promotion expiration date - customers have 30 days from phone activation or installation of this update to redeem the 50GB offer
  • Calling – Improved Voice Quality: Fixed an issue that could sometimes result in choppy audio being heard by the person you’re talking with on your Moto X
  • Moto Care – Lost Device Finder: Fixed an issue that could sometimes prevent a lost phone from reporting its location to the Moto Care Lost Device Finder service
  • Motorola Assist – Driving Detection: Fixed an issue that could sometimes cause the phone to read out text messages and announce calls when not in Drive mode

It looks like T-Mobile Moto X owners have a much-improved photo-taking experience to look forward to, along with some tweaks to Motorola-specific features mixed in for good measure. The update bumps the T-Mobile Moto X to software version 139.12.57.ghost_row.Retail.en.US and can be snagged by heading into Settings > About phone > System updates.
