Google Home set to get smarter at multitasking

According to Google, the feature is now rolling out in English-speaking countries, including the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Back at I/O, Google revealed that it was working to improve support for multiple commands like these and make them smarter.

Google Home is getting smarter as it now has the ability to perform up to three queries at a time. Today, that functionality is starting to go live. 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 announcement about the update was done by the Made by Google Twitter page. If you recall, when multiple commands rolled around, you had to say the two complete commands separated by "and". Today, Google announced on Twitter that support for up to three simultaneous commands is rolling out to users in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia.

He took part in the team training session on Wednesday but did not engage in any pieces of training that involves the ball. Team officials said his participation in Egypt's opener against Uruguay on Friday at Yekaterinburg remains uncertain.

Previously, asking to "turn off living room and bedroom" when referring to those home control groups simply didn't work. Multiple Actions allows users to chain commands in a much more natural and less verbose way. For example, say "Hey Google, tell me the weather in Boston, London, and Sydney", or "Hey Google, turn on the Chromecast, the coffeemaker, and the bedroom light".

To gain access users need to make sure their Google Home device is updated with the latest firmware.
