Google Home Now Supports Multiple Queries and Actions

Keep in mind, whenever you use the "and" to differentiate between two commands, you must make sure each command you speak is complete.

Multiple commands have been supported on Google Home for a few months now, but the support is relatively limited.

Google Assistant's biggest selling point is just how smart it is, and on smart speakers that especially shows its value. Queries can involve fetching information from the web, as well as performing commands on connected smart home devices. In subsequent tweets, the company linked to a help page about the feature, but this only makes reference to being able to link together two commands.

This feature is now only available in English in the 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.

The anti-government armed militant groups including Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far. The government will continue its operations against other groups, such as IS, during the ceasefire.

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".

Late a year ago, Google rolled out a handy feature that allowed Google Assistant, by way of its Google Home smart speakers, to handle two commands at once. Now, you can ask about the weather, check your calendar, and turn on the kitchen lights while only saying "Ok, Google" once.

With this latest firmware update, though, Google can intelligently recognize these commands.

"Play music, and set volume to 4, and turn on the living room lights".
