Google Home speakers can now handle three commands at once

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

Getting Google Assistant to do multiple things with one command has traditionally been a challenge. 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. As first noted by Android Police, Home users are noting that the device can better understand multiple commands compared to what we used to have.

The tweet was, however, deleted, indicating that the feature may not be ready right now.

In a tweet, Google said: "Now Google Home can perform up to three queries at a time, so you can get more done". Also, the commands should be given in a way that Google Assistant is able to respond to on its own without asking a follow-up question.

Late previous 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. Announced at I/O this past May, Multiple Actions allows you to issue multiple commands in a much more natural way.

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.

The feature is apparently now live for up you to three queries strung together for users in English language in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia - but my trials haven't been successful.
