Default [Q] Using Touchless Control with Pattern Lock screen

I read somewhere that when the phone first came out, you have to enter your pattern to unlock the phone after you said a touchless command to the phone. I then read that Motorola released an update that allows you to have Google application over the lockscreen so that you can use Touchless controls without having to unlock your pattern lock-protected phone.

Is this the case? I can't seem to find any threads online confirming the efficacy of the update.
