Google Home can now handle three queries at once

I tested it with several commands for my smart home and I was able to get it to work for two lights (I don't have light groups), one light + one A/C unit, and one light + one scene (Harmony through SmartThings). Today, that functionality is starting to go live. Others needed to update their Google Home firmware. Queries can involve fetching information from the web, as well as performing commands on connected smart home devices. To this end, Google Home can now respond to strings of up to three commands at once. That's the example Google gave us at I/O. However, there has been progress in that it is also possible to issue a shorter version of commands such as "turn on the lights in the living room and the kitchen".

Keep in mind, whenever you use the "and" to differentiate between two commands, you must make sure each command you speak is complete. But as promised at I/O, Home can now understand the more natural "turn on the lights in the living room and the kitchen".

What this means is that you can say "OK, Google" (or "Hey Google") once, and the Google Home device will listen to the next three things you ask.
