Google Home Can Now Understand Three Queries at a Time
Multiple commands have been a part of Google Home for half a year now, but there were many caveats. For instance, we could only issue up to two commands at once and similar commands still had to be said separately. Not anymore, Google tweeted about the new Google Home multiple command support
You’re not the only one who can multitask. Now Google Home can perform up to three queries at a time, so you can get more done. pic.twitter.com/7jTd97Evus

This opens a plethora of new possibilities, as the ability to be able to give 3 Google Home commands in a go increases the number of possible actions by a huge factor. Imagine being able to turn on your lights, change temperature and start a TV show in a single sentence to Google Home. Netflix and chill hasn’t been easier.
With the support for 3 queries, Google also improved the Smart Command. Now, you can club together various commands which you needed to say separately earlier. For example, if you have to download Ant-Man and Thor Ragnarok, you had to say “Download Ant-Man and download Thor Ragnarok”. Now with the new update, all you have to say to your Google Home, “Download Ant-Man and Thor Ragnarok”, and voila, it gets done. It is supposed to save a lot of time and hassle and make the commands much more natural.
The new features are made available in the Google Home with the new firmware update. It is available on all Google Home devices including the Google Home Mini. Note that it only supports English for now, that too only the US, UK, Canada and Australia version, although support for more languages for these new Google Home commands is expected to roll out soon.
We appreciate the feedback. This feature is supported in the US, UK, Canada and Australia using the English language.
