  • Google Home can now handle up to three commands at once

The "multiple queries" feature is now available in English for USA, UK, Canada and Australia, and enables Google Home users to perform up to three functions with a single utterance.

Every now and then, we here of Bixby adding a few new features here and there, but it still is miles away from being as good as the Google Assistant. Now, Google Home devices are getting even smarter with improved support for multiple queries.

Try it out for yourself, and see how many queries you can get your Google Home to act upon.

Last year, Google made it easier to interact with your Google Home or Home Mini smart speaker by allowing users to chain up to two commands together, instead of separately spelling out each query.

Google has tweeted that Google Home can now understand up to three commands at a time but the feature is limited to US, UK, Canada and Australia.

Previously, asking to "turn off living room and bedroom" when referring to those home control groups simply didn't work.

Of course, you can also say, "Hey, Google" to get the Assistant listening. 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.

With this latest firmware update, though, Google can intelligently recognize these commands. However, you'll probably use something more along the lines of "Ok Google, turn on the lights in the kitchen and turn off the lights in the bedroom".
