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

Despite Google's claims, Google Home users seemed to have trouble getting the feature to work.

Multiple commands have been supported on Google Home for a few months now, but the support is relatively limited.

The announcement about the update was done by the Made by Google Twitter page.

Right now the feature works in English-speaking countries like the US, UK, Australia and Canada. Google's smart speaker can now perform three queries at once. For example, instead of saying "OK Google, what's the time in Shanghai and what's the time in London", you can simply ask, "what's the time in Shanghai and London" and get two separate answers based on your question. That lead to unnatural sentences like "turn on the lights in the living room and turn on the lights in the kitchen".


Now, users can say something more natural, such as "turn off the lights in the bedroom and living room".

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".

At its annual developer conference, I/O 2018, Google had revealed that its smart speaker Google Home will get smarter in the future. Others needed to update their Google Home firmware. 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?".
