Published

A new updated and sleeker looking Hue app has been released, which also includes some new features. The app has been rebuilt the “from the ground up” to make it easier to use.

Philips Hue gets a Sleeker New App

Signify is replacing the “routines” feature with a new “automations” tab, which is supposed to offer more advanced options for triggering your lights on and off.

The apps speed and performance has been improved, it is easier to access light scenes and also organise and access your rooms and zones.

Organizing Entertainment areas is also easier — and more fun — with a new setup in an isometric 2.5D view to determine the exact location and height of the lights. To make it even simpler, the lights in the setup change their color so users know exactly which ones they refer to. 

“As world leader in the smart lighting industry, the focus of Philips Hue is to keep improving its products and services with the latest innovations. The millions of users worldwide of the Philips Hue app are at the basis of its new launch. We analyze suggestions and reviews and even co-create with our users via usability studies and beta apps. With the launch of the new Philips Hue app, we set the first milestone in the future of smart lighting. It’s the new Philips Hue experience, and this is just the beginning. We are excited to share more innovations in the rest of the year,” said George Yianni, Head of Technology Philips Hue at Signify.

Dynamic scenes as first upcoming update 

Signify has already announced an upcoming update to the new Hue app with dynamic scenes launching in summer 2021. With this feature, each of the lights in the Room or Zone will slowly transition through the different colors of the dynamic scene. Instead of each light staying at only one color, dynamic scenes introduce a new level of unique light effects — and create an atmosphere unlike any other. 

The version 4.0 of the Hue App is available and can be downloaded via the App Store and Google Play Store, or updated today, 3rd June 2021.
