Google Home Can Now Handle Up to Three Queries At a Time

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.

Despite Google's claims, Google Home users seemed to have trouble getting the feature to work. In subsequent tweets, the company linked to a help page about the feature, but this only makes reference to being able to link together two commands. 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. It isn't live just yet for everyone, but essentially this just makes multiple commands more natural to say.

Previously, asking to "turn off living room and bedroom" when referring to those home control groups simply didn't work.

With little fanfare, Google has bumped the number of simultaneous queries and actions its Home smart speakers can handle at once. However, you'll probably use something more along the lines of "Ok Google, turn on the lights in the kitchen and turn off the lights in the bedroom". For example, you can not say, "Hey Google, turn on the lights in the living room and in the bedroom", since in the bedroom isn't a complete command.

"You're not the only one who can multitask", the Made by Google Twitter accounted revealed via a tweet.

With this latest firmware update, though, Google can intelligently recognize these commands.
