Same issue here. Been a week since I FDR'd (NOT rooted or unlocked). The apps restored, touchless control no longer allows to register voice (does not recognize sound ONLY for Touchless Control).

Saw that Touchless Control has been updated to "Moto Voice",

Uninstalled Moto Voice to return to previous version. No luck. Again updated to Moto Voice.

Wipe Cache Partition, no luck.

I've installed Open Mic+, which works for the most part (never got it to work from lock screen)

Stopped Open Mic+.

I then went in Language & input ---> Google voice typing settings (or Voice Search), disabled/re-enabled Speech Output. Clicked on "Ok Google Detection" and did the standard Google Now/OK Google setup again.

Went back to Touchless Control and this time it recognized my voice and allowed me to setup Touchless Control and all is working again.

Although the new "Moto Voice" on the "1st Gen [2013] Ultra/Maxx etc.., you cannot customize the "OK Google Now" at this time (coming feature for Gen 1's).

Rebooting now to ensure operation. Will updated/verify 'fix' in a moment.

Upon restart, my Open Mic+ restarted, and the "OK Google Now" was not working. Stopped the Open Mic+ and touchless control working again. Went in and re-trained to verify. Unintalling Open Mic+ and rebooting now.

Now again working 100%, now just awaiting Moto Voice update to allow additional features for 1st gen's.

Did you happen to open the Google app, scroll to the bottom, tap the three dot menu control on the bottom right, tap settings, voice, OK Google detection, and turn off the setting "On any screen"?

If that is on, I think it block touchless controls, maddeningly. I know it stops the Assist driving feature from being able to capture voice when it prompts you.

I set "on any screen" option and touchless controls does work from any screen, needing only "OK Google".

I am not driving now but will check Assist in about 2 hours.

I don't think that's touchless controls - I think that's the Google search app listening and responding to ok Google , and, with that setting on, that's probably why you couldn't train in the Touchless controls settings (though I haven't tested that myself, since my phone is already trained.)

I know it's a subtle difference, but Touchless controls is a front end to google search most of the time, though sometimes it does its own thing (ok Google now, what's up?)

I do know that the any screen setting screws up some other things, like preventing the camera app from capturing video (because the microphone is in use).
