I've been using the Moto x for a week now and I feel that the touchless control activation (ok Google now) is much more sensitive than the "ok Google" hotword within the Google now app.
One thing I'm seeing is that when you're in the Google now app, it only listens for "ok Google" rather than touchless control "ok Google now", which isn't as sensitive.
Would like to confirm whether others are not able to activate touchless control "ok Google now" from within the Google now app?
That's how it's designed, it's not supposed to activate while on Google Now. At least that's how it is for me since day one. And it wouldn't make sense. Let's say if you are in Google Now, if you did activate Touchless Control, it would just goes back to Google Now to initiate the command, redundant.
I would've preferred it to still be able to pick up touchless control from within the google now app. I find that I can activate touchless control from across the room whereas the google now hotword is a lot less sensitive and I need to be close to my phone to activate it
