Google Home now supports handling three commands at once

Google Home is getting smarter as it now has the ability to perform up to three queries at a time.

This expands on the Home's earlier multitasking feature, which could handle two things at once. At the Google I/O 2018, the company had announced the multiple actions feature, but it has just started to roll out now. 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.

For example, they can say "Hey Google, show me the weather forecast, set a timer for five minutes, and play music on Spotify" and Assistant will do all of those tasks for them without having to make them give an individual command for each task.


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

However, Google promises that more languages will be supported in time. If you wanted Google to tell you the weather in Boston, London, and Sydney, you'd have to issue three separate commands. I tested it with several commands for my smart home and I was able to get it to work for two lights (I don't have light groups), one light + one A/C unit, and one light + one scene (Harmony through SmartThings).

Not specified in the original tweet, but added in a follow-up, Google also notes that this feature is available in English only and only in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
