SAN FRANSISCO: Google Home is all set to get a makeover with improved and faster multi-tasking facilities. The voice-activated smart speaker created by the tech-giant will get better at handling multiple queries once the update is rolled out.

At the Google's annual developer conference, the company announced its plans to improve support for multiple commands like these and make them smarter.

Multiple commands have been supported on Google Home speakers for a few months now but the support has been relatively limited.

The announcement was recently made on Twitter:  "You're not the only one who can multitask. Now Google Home can perform up to three queries at a time, so you can get more done."

The tweet was, however, deleted, indicating that the feature may not be ready right now.

If and when the company comes out with the multitasking feature, the Google homepage will be able to handle three things at once. 

According to CNET, The feature will likely work in English-speaking countries like the US, UK, Australia and Canada.
