One of the many interesting features of the Moto X is the ability to check messages and view incoming calls on the computer screen. While other apps and services have their own extensions or Chrome Apps, only a select few can handle SMS or phone calls. Motorola’s Connect is one of those, and today it’s seeing a slight update pushed out.
Proprietary to the Droid lineup and Moto X, Motorola Connect offers intrinsic value to your overall experience with Motorola’s new devices. While it’s similar to services like Google Voice, the ability to see who’s calling is interesting, and probably helpful in those moments when you hear the phone ring, but can’t — or won’t — find the device to catch that call.
The update is aesthetic, but also takes care of a few bugs that were present in the extension. Some users complained about the lack of syncing and had issues with SMS messages being sent, but Motorola didn’t specify which issues this update fixed.
Motorola Connect is available on the Chrome Web Store, and is a great option if you have a new Motorola device. Be sure to check out our review of the Moto X and Motorola Droid lineup, as well as the video for Motorola Connect below.
