Google has silently updated all of their Google Home devices this week, giving Google Assistant the ability to be able to perform multiple tasks on-the-fly. Originally a single minded device only capable of performing and completing one mission at a time now has the ability of simultaneously completing two.

Google has promised the adding of Routines to Google Home, Routines is the creation of predetermined voice commands that cause the device to perform a select amount of actions once heard. This new update from Google allows for two of those actions to be completed on-the-fly without having to pre-load the device.

Unfortunately, Google Home can't take on board more than two commands at once and also won't understand two tasks said in the same sentence, this means that the tasks have to be said separately in order for the device to correctly understand them. This is quite a downside but then again could provide a much more handier experience than pre-loading voice commands to your device.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
