Google Assistant Now Capable of Handling 3 Commands at a Time

GoogleHome This would expand Home's earlier multitasking feature which could handle two things at once
Melba Vasquez | 13 June, 2018, 19:58

It means that if you own a Google Home smart speaker, you may soon find you're using the word "and" more than you ever have before.

In November, Google Home gained the ability to multitask with added support for a feature called "multiple queries", which allows you to combine two requests into one voice command. Now, the company has officially confirmed that it is rolling out support for Google Home to hear that special prompt and then keep tabs on three separate commands. To use this, you'll simply need to be on the latest firmware version, but it's important to note that this is limited in language and region availability. 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. However, there has been progress in that it is also possible to issue a shorter version of commands such as "turn on the lights in the living room and the kitchen". 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). For example, you had to say "turn on my living room TV and turn on my Living room light".

As an extreme example, you can ask, "Ok Google, who was president when Kevin Durant was drafted into the National Basketball Association and what team drafted him?" So you'll be able to say, "OK Google, dim the lights and play Marvin Gaye and turn the volume down", and create instant ambience.
