Now, Google Home devices are getting even smarter with improved support for multiple queries. Unfortunately for Google's global customer base, multiple queries is only available in the English language for the time being, in the USA, U.K., Canada and Australia.
Google has just revealed that its Google Home smart speaker line-up can now respond to three voice commands in one go - providing the commands are made distinct by using the word "and" to join them. Google has not yet announced this feature officially, as the support page still says that it's limited to two commands only. 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". Notably, the new feature is different from "Routines" that allows users to train Home to perform a longer set of actions based on their voice commands.More news: Steam finally adds voice chat and flexible friend lists in new beta
Previously, asking to "turn off living room and bedroom" when referring to those home control groups simply didn't work. For example, "OK Google, turn up the volume and play music".
For instance, suppose you want to turn on your TV and light, then all you need to say "turn on my living room TV and light".More news: Prince George pictured playing with a toy gun and people aren't happy
With this latest firmware update, though, Google can intelligently recognize these commands.
This meant you didn't have to keep saying "Ok, Google" with each individual command, making everything a bit more streamlined.More news: Aeon Flux returns to TV as a live-action series
