Motorola Assist is an exclusive app for Motorola devices, which is designed to assist you when you are driving, sleeping and attending a meeting. On Moto G, only Sleeping and Meeting assist are available. Driving assist is not available on Moto G due to its hardware limitations. Here is how to setup and use Motorola Assist on Moto G.
Motorola Assist works quietly in the background and as per your configuration, it can silence calls during meetings or when it is time for bed. By setting actions and exceptions, you can make it work exactly how you want them to.
Sleeping Assist offers good night’s rest by silencing your phone, but at the same time offering option to receive important calls.
