Google Home now supports handling three commands 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. Until now, Google Home speakers could understand two commands at the same time.

Every now and then, we here of Bixby adding a few new features here and there, but it still is miles away from being as good as the Google Assistant.

Google made this announcement on its Made By Google Twitter page, and at the time of publication, it's rolling out to users across the United States.

Right now the feature works in English-speaking countries like the US, UK, Australia and Canada. However, there has been progress in that it is also possible to issue a shorter version of commands such as "turn on the lights in the living room and the kitchen". Rather, users needed to say something like "turn off living room and turn off bedroom" to accomplish that task.

For Android Police, it was impossible to get Google Home to string together more than two commands - you just need to make sure that they are separated by the word "and". 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?".

To begin using multiple queries with Google Home, first update your device to the latest firmware using the Google Home app on your smartphone.
