Google Home now supports handling three commands at once

Google Home gets smarter multiple command support, now answers up to three queries at a time
The smart speaker from Google will soon be able to perform up to three queries/ commands at a time, so that you can multitask using just the spoken word.
Google is improving the multitasking capability of Google Home and has enabled the device to help users get more done in less time. This functionality is now expanding to three commands, Google announced on its Made By Google Twitter page (Update: the Tweet has since been removed for unknown reasons).
To check if you're on the latest firmware version, use the Google Home app on your phone and check the device info for your Google Home device. The company confirmed today that Google Home is now capable of performing up to three queries at a time.
Now, you can say "Hey Google, tell me about my day, remind me to call Maynard and dim the kitchen lights" all in one go, and the Google Assistant will do all of that for you.
This meant you didn't have to keep saying "Ok, Google" with each individual command, making everything a bit more streamlined.
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). 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.
The feature will likely work in English-speaking countries like the US, UK, Australia and Canada, the CNET report added.
