Google Home can now handle up to three queries at a time

Queries can involve fetching information from the web, as well as performing commands on connected smart home devices.

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.

Previously, Google Home speakers could perform two commands at the same time.

Since we're likely looking at a staged roll-out here, you may not yet be able to chain three commands together on your Google Home, but the feature should go live for everyone in the coming days. 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. 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).

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

This feature is now only available in English in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. But as promised at I/O, Home can now understand the more natural "turn on the lights in the living room and the kitchen". Rather, users needed to say something like "turn off living room and turn off bedroom" to accomplish that task.

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