Share

At Google I/O, the company announced that it was increasing Assistant's multitasking capabilities.

Noted on Twitter, Google has announced that Home devices can now support up to three commands at a time, expanding on the previously available two. However, the tweet has been deleted, possibly indicating the feature is not quite ready and may take some time before the official re-announcement.

Unfortunately, the company didn't provide an exact date, so fans should keep an eye out for any announcements from Sony. Previously, the developer demonstrated a commitment to their title with the recently implemented photo mode .

But don't worry if you don't have the feature yet. Unfortunately for Google's global customer base, multiple queries is only available in the English language for the time being, in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia. The feature uses the connecting command "And" to connect questions which are either contextually or factually linked. There are over one million Google Assistant skills. It isn't live just yet for everyone, but essentially this just makes multiple commands more natural to say. This will "wake up" Google Assistant and make sure it's listening to you. For example, you can not say, "Hey Google, turn on the lights in the living room and in the bedroom", since in the bedroom isn't a complete command.

You can't use this feature if any of your commands require further clarification.

For instance, now you can say "OK Google" and ask for the weather, a news update, and for some music - without having to start with "OK Google" again (and again).
