Google Home can now handle three queries at once

Google Home can now handle three queries at once

Google made this announcement on its Made By Google Twitter page, and at the time of publication, it's rolling out to users across the United States.

For instance, suppose you want to turn on your TV and light, then all you need to say "turn on my living room TV and light".

The new ability is a progression from Google Home's understanding of two commands at once. At the Google I/O 2018, the company had announced the multiple actions feature, but it has just started to roll out now. However, the tweet has been deleted, possibly indicating the feature is not quite ready and may take some time before the official re-announcement.

With little fanfare, Google has bumped the number of simultaneous queries and actions its Home smart speakers can handle at once.

However, Google promises that more languages will be supported in time. To use the feature just link different queries by saying "and" between commands. Also, the commands should be given in a way that Google Assistant is able to respond to on its own without asking a follow-up question. As first noted by Android Police, Home users are noting that the device can better understand multiple commands compared to what we used to have. If you recall, when multiple commands rolled around, you had to say the two complete commands separated by "and". Unfortunately for Google's global customer base, multiple queries is only available in the English language for the time being, in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.
