Google Home can now handle three queries at once Sarah Perez @ 8 hours

Google announced the update on the Made by Google Twitter page.

How often do you use the Google Assistant on your Google Home speaker (s)?

Despite Google's claims, Google Home users seemed to have trouble getting the feature to work. Queries can involve fetching information from the web, as well as performing commands on connected smart home devices.

Since last November, we have been able to issue two queries to our Google Home speakers at once and they would understand them. 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?".

According to Android Police, queries can now be spoken more naturally. Notably, the new feature is different from "Routines" that allows users to train Home to perform a longer set of actions based on their voice commands.

If a user wanted to turn off lights in multiple rooms, they would have had to say something like "turn off the lights in the bedroom and turn off the lights in the living room". For example, "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.

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