Google Home can now handle three queries at once

13 June 2018

According to a Tweet by Google (which seems to be deleted for some reason), the Google Home smart speaker can now understand up to three commands issued simultaneously. Adding a third request could save time for people who have a lot of smart home appliances controlled by their Google Home. Now, the company has officially confirmed that it is rolling out support for Google Home to hear that special prompt and then keep tabs on three separate commands. Today, that functionality is starting to go live.

Google announced the update on the Made by Google Twitter page. To use this, you'll simply need to be on the latest firmware version, but it's important to note that this is limited in language and region availability.

Now, users can say something more natural, such as "turn off the lights in the bedroom and living room". That lead to unnatural sentences like "turn on the lights in the living room and turn on the lights in the kitchen".

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

Late past year, Google rolled out a handy feature that allowed Google Assistant, by way of its Google Home smart speakers, to handle two commands at once. For example, instead of saying "Ok, Google, what's the weather in NY and what's the weather in San Francisco?", you can simply say "Ok, Google, what's the weather in NY and San Francisco?".
