Google Home speakers can now handle three commands at once

Google Home speakers can now handle three commands at once

With there being a number of digital assistants to choose from, each is now focusing on becoming smarter than the competition.

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

Since we're likely looking at a staged roll-out here, you may not yet be able to chain three commands together on your Google Home, but the feature should go live for everyone in the coming days.

According to Google, the feature is now rolling out in English-speaking countries, including the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. However, at least one user says it's working for him in the United Kingdom, so your mileage may vary.

Back-flipping Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who accidentally shot Denver nightclub-goer surrenders
Footage of the incident shows Mr Bishop dancing with a crowd around him when he suddenly thrusts himself backward onto his hands. Bishop gained national notoriety after video of his backflip on a dance floor in the early hours of June 2 went viral.

Google Home is now getting better multitasking features.

Google announced the update on the Made by Google Twitter page. But the additional new command support will be helpful particularly for connected households, where users may need to juggle more tasks?

With little fanfare, Google has bumped the number of simultaneous queries and actions its Home smart speakers can handle at once. That lead to unnatural sentences like "turn on the lights in the living room and turn on the lights in the kitchen".

To begin using multiple queries with Google Home, first update your device to the latest firmware using the Google Home app on your smartphone. Citing the example above, simply saying "turn off living room and bedroom" should work now with the desired result.
