New Nest Mini promises better sound and smarter features
Last year, Google added an optional feature called Continued Discussions . When you speak a command with a Google Start speaker, it completes and waits for another command for a few seconds, or until you say "Thanks."
For example, you can say "OK, google, what's the weather like?" After the weather tells you, say, "What about tomorrow?" Then you could say, "Remind me to bring an umbrella tomorrow morning," without ever having to repeat the call. You can disable this feature in the Google Home app if you do not want the microphone to stay active.

Summarize three commands
Google has recently activated a new feature in Google Home that allows you to speak up to three consecutive commands in one sentence. For example, you can say, "Hey Google, play hammock on Spotify and set the volume to 10" or "OK google, what's the weather and turn on the living room lights."
Almost any of the above commands can be used together, but some commands only work if they are formulated in a specific way. An undoubtedly easier way to let Google Home perform multiple actions at the same time is to create a routine.
Similar to Alexa Google Home now has routines that can be triggered with a custom phrase or custom schedule. In short, you can create a routine that turns off the light in the house, closes the front door, adjusts the temperature, and plays soothing music when you say, "OK, Google, good night."
Or you have a routine that runs every morning on a schedule as an alarm that plays the news, turns on the lights, cooks your coffee and creates a timer to let you know when it's time is to go to the house.
