Audio [Q] [ANSWERED] Google Now always-on & Voice Commands & Bluetooth Headset?

Guys,

From what I understand, the Moto-X has an "always on" Google Now option. This means you can pick up the phone and say an audible command that it will respond to without you needing to press any buttons?

Okay, if so that's great. Now here is the important question.
Does it also work this way when you're connected using a Bluetooth headset with mic and listening to music?

So if you put on your Bluetooth headset/mic and start listening to some MP3's streaming from the phone... can you speak out loud and interrupt the music and give a command to Google Now? Without pressing ANY buttons???

Thanks for any responses!

Yes, it activates regardless of what you are doing at that exact moment once given the command. It's a pretty damn nice feature.

Have yet to expand using it by the Tasker, Auto Voice.

You don't have to pick up the phone, hence the name touchless controls.

The Find My Phone command is great!
