About this app

The official Philips Hue app is the most comprehensive way to organise, control and customise your Philips Hue smart lights and accessories.  
Looking for the Hue Bluetooth app? You can now use this app to control your Philips Hue smart Bluetooth lights!*  

Organise your smart lights your way 
Whether you use just a few bulbs or have completely outfitted your home in Philips Hue, you can organise your smart lights with ease. Group your lights into Rooms or Zones – your entire downstairs floor or all the lights in the living room, for example – that mirror the physical rooms in your home. 

Easily control your lights – from anywhere 
Adjust your lights’ brightness, temperature and colour and control multiple lights across Rooms or Zones all from the Hue app – and it doesn’t matter where you are. You can use the app to control your lights wherever you have an Internet connection.   

Extraordinary light experiences  
Created by professional lighting designers, scenes transform your room in an instant. Create a unique atmosphere with the Honolulu scene, the vibrant colours of Soho and more. Browse the Hue scene gallery and tap a scene to set it – or create your own based on a photo or your favourite colour palette. 

Light recipes for your daily routines 
Use the four light recipes designed by lighting experts to support your wellbeing throughout the day. Start the day with the cool daylight of Energise to give you a morning boost, followed by the brighter Concentrate setting to help you get things done. The Read light recipe gives you the perfect shade of light in which to read your favourite book, while the dimmed golden glow of Relax helps you wind down.  

Personalise with automations 
Make your smart lights work around your daily routine. Whether you want your lights to gently wake you up in the morning or greet you when you get home, setting up customisable automations in the Hue app is effortless – and fun!   

Hands-free voice control 
Use Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to control your smart lights with just your voice. Simple voice commands let you turn lights on and off, dim and brighten or even change colours without you ever lifting a finger. 

Create widgets for quick control (Android) 
Control your smart lights even faster by creating widgets on your home screen. Turn lights on or off, adjust brightness and temperature or set scenes – all without even opening the app.

It's ok. It provides some basic functionality to get you up and running with your lights. For those looking for more granular control to include shifting colors at certain times with various brightness levels, it immediately becomes tedious. There is a Hue Labs, but these are even less intuitive, and as best I can tell, not created by users. There are minor annoyances, like a slider for brightness levels without the ability to just type in a value. No ability to copy/paste settings, etc

It took me a little while to warm up to the updated app design, mostly because I found the new visuals uncharacteristic of Android apps, as well as excessive side-scrolling, but I will say working with the assortment of "default" scenes is improved (can try without saving; no bloat) and I like how automations are set up. However: the app can be sluggish. Widgets are completely unreliable, even on wifi. Strongly dislike how my remote must always have 5 scenes, no more, no less.

Old app was a solid 4. New app blows. Slow. Doesn't connect. Overly complicated and clunky. A dozen clicks to do something that used to take 1 or 2. Making sliders go to the edge of the screen on devices that have swipe from the side gestures is an idiotic design choice. Widgets are useless and lost most functionality. Last review was deleted so reposting.
