Google Home has been progressing slowly and is competing with Amazon's Echo devices for the throne of the best smart speaker. While Alexa's skills can be a good thing for external developers, Google's vast knowledge in the field of AI is something difficult to overcome. This year, in Google I / O, the Mountain View giant had promised improvements to its multiple command system that would require less verbosity and would allow more than two commands at once. It seems as if those changes were now live.
You are not the only one who can perform multiple tasks. Now, Google Home can make up to three queries at a time, so you can do more. pic.twitter.com/7jTd97Evus

As announced in an official tweet, Google Home now comprises up to three queries together. The feature is currently available only in English in the US. USA, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. While we have not been able to test the function personally, we have mixed the reports of the function that work for some, while others report that the function is not yet active. As such, your mileage may vary.
In addition, in addition to being able to recognize three commands at once, Google Home also has the most intelligent capability of multiple commands. For those who do not know, before using two commands in a single sentence, the user was expected to repeat two complete sentences and add a separative "and" in the middle. For example, if you had to ask the Assistant to turn on the lights both in the living room and in the hallway, you would have to say "turn on the lights in the living room * and * turn on the lights in the living room". However, with the new update, Google Assistant has the ability to intelligently analyze these commands. Simply saying "turn on the lights in the living room and the lobby" works as it should.
Both features are expected to have been active in all Google Home products, including Google Home Mini. So go ahead, try it and share with us your experiences in the comments below.
