Now Google Home can answer 3 questions at once

Google Home can perform 3 actions simultaneously

It was announced at the Google I/O 2018 annual developer conference last month that the Google Assistant will soon be able to handle multiple actions.

The update is now going live for Google Home smart home assistants. It can perform three actions simultaneously in a single voice command.

The feature, called "Multiple Actions," is currently being rolled out across the US.

In context

Google Home can perform 3 actions simultaneously
Combine three requests in one voice command

Details

Combine three requests in one voice command

The new feature essentially allows you to stack commands by only saying "OK Google" or "Hey Google" once.

The Google Assistant has also become more natural to talk to, so instead of saying "Hey Google, what's the weather in Delhi and what's the weather in Mumbai," you can conversationally ask, "OK Google, what's the weather in Delhi and Mumbai?"

The feature will become available in these locations

Things to Note

Set alarm, switch off light, play music in one go

In fact, eventually, you won't even have to say the wakeword all the time before talking to your Google Home.

Just make sure that you separate different voice queries with the word "and" in between them.

Further, it is important that each command be wholesome on its own and doesn't require a follow-up question from the Google Assistant.

The feature currently works with US English only

While the feature currently works with US English only, triple commands will be made compatible with other languages in the future as well, Google said.

If you have opted to share information with Google, Google uses that information, along with your Google history, to better assist you with customizations like your name and interests. You can delete your history, which will limit the personalized experience for features like the Google Assistant. You can view your history with the Google Assistant in My Activity.

Can Google Home access my search history?

Answered by NewsBytes

Yes. If you have agreed to let Google Home do so, it will access your search history to provide you with better, more helpful answers. Google Home either asks you your address or will guess your location based on your IP address and other signals in order to set alarms for the right time zone and provide you with relevant weather and traffic information.

A 4-digit PIN is required for connecting to a Google Home in Guest mode. When a device nearby tries to connect, the Google Home automatically transfers that PIN using short, inaudible audio tones. If the audio tone pairing fails, your guest will be given the option to connect manually by entering the 4-digit PIN.
