Google Home Can Handle Three Queries At A Time Now


Google Home Can Handle Three Queries At A Time Now

To this end, Google Home can now respond to strings of up to three commands at once.

Google Home is now getting better multitasking features.

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. For example, you can not say, "Hey Google, turn on the lights in the living room and in the bedroom", since in the bedroom isn't a complete command.

With little fanfare, Google has bumped the number of simultaneous queries and actions its Home smart speakers can handle at once.

Also, this capability appears to extend to actions, too.

The tweet was, however, deleted, indicating that the feature may not be ready right now. But, as per a TechCrunch report, Google has informed that it is planning to support more languages, but there's nothing more to announce at the moment. 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. If you wanted Google to tell you the weather in Boston, London, and Sydney, you'd have to issue three separate commands.

Previously, Google Home speakers could perform two commands at the same time.

Adding a third request could save time for people who have a lot of smart home appliances controlled by their Google Home, according to CNET.
