Google Home can now juggle three queries at once

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. Now, Google Home devices are getting even smarter with improved support for multiple queries.

With little fanfare, Google has bumped the number of simultaneous queries and actions its Home smart speakers can handle at once. Today, that functionality is starting to go live.

These two new features, while small on their own, should make talking to your Google Home a lot more natural.

Google has tweeted that Google Home can now understand up to three commands at a time but the feature is limited to US, UK, Canada and Australia. That lead to unnatural sentences like "turn on the lights in the living room and turn on the lights in the kitchen".

This meant you didn't have to keep saying "Ok, Google" with each individual command, making everything a bit more streamlined. So you'll be able to say, "OK Google, dim the lights and play Marvin Gaye and turn the volume down", and create instant ambience. For example, you had to say "turn on my living room TV and turn on my Living room light". 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?". Others needed to update their Google Home firmware.
