Latest Update Allows Google Home to Understand Three Commands at Once

Share

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

Late past year, Google rolled out a handy feature that allowed Google Assistant, by way of its Google Home smart speakers, to handle two commands at once. Support for three commands and Multiple Actions are both live on my regular Home and Home Mini, but if they're not working for you yet, be sure to keep trying over the next couple days. Today, that functionality is starting to go live.

The new ability is a progression from Google Home's understanding of two commands at once.

This feature is now only available in English in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.

Pope accepts resignation of three bishops over Chile sexual abuse scandal
But the pope had not responded officially to the offer until Monday, when he accepted the resignation of the three prelates. He later apologised to victims, following criticism from Cardinal Sean O'Malley, a Vatican pointman on clerical sex abuse.

The announcement about the update was done by the Made by Google Twitter page.

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".

Of course, you can also say, "Hey, Google" to get the Assistant listening. Others needed to update their Google Home firmware. However, you'll probably use something more along the lines of "Ok Google, turn on the lights in the kitchen and turn off the lights in the bedroom". For example, instead of saying "OK Google, what's the time in Shanghai and what's the time in London", you can simply ask, "what's the time in Shanghai and London" and get two separate answers based on your question.
