Google Home Can Now Perform Up to Three Commands Simultaneously

Google Home Can Now Perform Up to Three Commands Simultaneously

The new ability is a progression from Google Home's understanding of two commands at once. This functionality is now expanding to three commands, Google announced on its Made By Google Twitter page (Update: the Tweet has since been removed for unknown reasons).

Google is improving the multitasking capability of Google Home and has enabled the device to help users get more done in less time.

"What time is it, and what's the weather, and what are my appointments for today?"

What this means is that you can say "OK, Google" (or "Hey Google") once, and the Google Home device will listen to the next three things you ask. Previously you needed to combine two commands by "and". It's about an even transition to more natural commands that don't require a hotword such as "Hey Google".

Trump eyes oil prices: ‘OPEC is at it again’
After landing Wednesday morning, Trump fired off tweets on various subjects, including the summit. That move took crude from about $50 a barrel in late 2016 to more than $70 this year.

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".

With this latest firmware update, though, Google can intelligently recognize these commands. That lead to unnatural sentences like "turn on the lights in the living room and turn on the lights in the kitchen".

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.
