Google Home can now juggle three queries at once

It means that if you own a Google Home smart speaker, you may soon find you're using the word "and" more than you ever have before.

This expands on the Home's earlier multitasking feature, which could handle two things at once. 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).

Also, this capability appears to extend to actions, too. For example, say "Hey Google, tell me the weather in Boston, London, and Sydney", or "Hey Google, turn on the Chromecast, the coffeemaker, and the bedroom light". However, the tweet has been deleted, possibly indicating the feature is not quite ready and may take some time before the official re-announcement.

Fed Raises Interest Rates, Signals Faster Hikes on the Way
It kept borrowing costs that low after the financial crisis to encourage businesses and consumers to spend and grow the economy. Overall, the FOMC saw the median Fed funds rate at 2.4% at the end of 2018, up from 2.1% at the past five meetings.

Back at Google I/O (Google's annual developer conference), the company had announced that it was working to improve support for multiple commands like these and make them smarter. Google Home previously understood multiple queries only if each of them was spoken as a complete command. Adding a third request could save time for people who have a lot of smart home appliances controlled by their Google Home.

The feature is apparently now live for up you to three queries strung together for users in English language in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia - but my trials haven't been successful.
