From the developer of S for Switch Voice:

Touchless Notifications Pro and Touchless Notifications Free in the Google Play Store

New: To become a beta tester of the Pro version please join this Google+ community: Touchless Notifications Beta testers

"Listen to your notifications while your eyes and hands are busy"

Please try the Free version to see if it works for you, before purchasing this Pro version

You might have heard about the "What's up?" feature on the Moto X. They can ask "What's up?" and Touchless Control reads them their notifications. Politely, totally hands free, without ever taking their eyes off of what they are doing.

So you like it? But you don't have a Moto X?

You can have it now on your Android phone! Touchless Notification does that and much much more.

► Reads out all active notifications, every app notification is supported
► Notifications are shown along the announcement in big clear fonts
► You can change the amount of detail from an itemised list to content of emails and text messages (for expandable notifications)
► Turns screen off, if phone is in your pocket
► Shake to mute
► Remembers what it has announced already, only updates you with what's new
► Language detection to use the correct TTS engine for non-English messages
► Choose chronology: newest to oldest or vice versa
► App exception list, to exclude apps from announcement
► Says ambient temperature on supported devices (Samsung S4, Note3, S5)
► Pauses the music for the time of the reading

Complete user guide available online:

Pro version benefits:
► You can personalize how Touchless Notifications will greet you, or turn off the greeting. The Free edition let's you change the greeting, but you will only hear it in the test announcement (in settings)
► You can hide the notification icon of the Pro version
► Touchless Notifications Free will remind you to get the pro version in the announcement
► Note: More Free features may be moved to the Pro version in the future

You can have the reading start without touching your phone. Here are the options: (see video!)
► Issuing the voice command "open notifications" in Google Voice Search (more variations of the command are coming soon)
► Issuing the voice wake-up command "Hi Galaxy" on selected devices (using S for Switch Voice Pro)
► Connect the wired or Bluetooth headset. You can configure the time delay before the start of the announcement. Also works with car hands free systems.
► Attach or detach the charging cable. You don't have to look at your phone to hear about incoming notifications when you go to bed or pick up your phone after charging.
► Many other ways by simply launching the app from Tasker, Locale, NFC Retag etc.

How does it work? The app is special, because it installs two icons on your phone:
► Touchless Notifications Pro: launch this for the initial setup and to change settings
► Notifications: launch this for the actual announcements

Touchless Notifications places a permanent notification in the shade if you select any of the headset/power monitoring features. Remove the notification by disabling all connection triggers in the settings.

1► Launch "Touchless Notifications Pro" (the 2nd icon, NOT the "Notifications" icon!)
2► Read the two popup windows and enable both settings:
- Notification Access (on some devices the link might no take you all the way into the necessary Settings menu)
- Device Administrator (this is needed to turn the screen off in pockets)
3► Select the amount of detail in the "What to say" section, with special attention to "App exception list". You will need to come back to settings in the beginning to mark unwanted apps from the announcements
4► Press speaker icon on top to test


Q I cannot uninstall?!
A Go to Settings / Security / Device Administrators and uncheck

READ_PHONE_STATUS=mute announcement when a call comes in
BLUETOOTH=detect when Bluetooth headset is connected to trigger reading
BOOT_COMPLETED=restart the headset/power monitoring after restart
