Starting today Motorola is making it easier than ever to print photos from your smartphone, thanks to the latest Moto Mod to join the expanding Moto Z lineup. The brand rolled out a Polaroid Insta-Share Printer that easily snaps on the back of your Motorola smartphone to make printing pictures a breeze and eliminating the need to tote around a separate instant camera.
In order to use the new mod, you can open your camera directly from the button on the back, snap, and print, or you can opt to print photos from Instagram, Google Photos, Facebook, or your camera roll. The printer also allows you to customize photos with filters, borders, and texts.
The printer will be available starting today, Nov. 17, at Verizon and Motorola.com for $199.99. You can also purchase it on presale at Best Buy, B&H, Fry's, and New Egg on Dec. 6, making it a great holiday gift for Moto Z users with an affinity for taking, (and sharing), pictures.

The latest launch comes on the heels of the Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa, which allows you to take Alexa on-the-go with you, (and your smartphone, of course). The dockable design snaps onto the back of your Moto Z phone and comes with 15 hours of built-in battery, allowing you to share your music, (and get whatever answers and updates you may need from Alexa), without interfering with the charge on your device.
Alexa works just as well as it does at home and will respond to voice commands over your music, offering up your schedule, weather, to-do list, and whatever else you may need.
