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!

Sync your smart lights
Make your lights flash, dance, dim, brighten, and change color in sync with your screen or sound! Use the Sync tab to sync your lights with the Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box or Spotify.

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
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.

This was a decent app but they have made the interface much more cumbersome to use. For example, the feature I use the most is the My Scenes screen. At the most basic level, your scenes are on two rows that now scroll horizontally. There's no sense of organization and (whether it's by name, user created vs default, etc.) so if you have a lot of scenes set up it's annoying trying to find the one you want. Widget creation is completely broken now. It loops through the process but never finishes.

The widget functionality has broken. I just tried to create a new 1x1 widget, and went through the whole process up until you pick the scene you want. When you choose a scene, any scene, the process restarts, never creating a widget. You can't successfully get past the scene selection step. Please fix!

Often, when multiple lights are on, and I change the illumination level on one light, it will automatically lower the light level on other lights I have on. It's not allowing me to only adjust the level for that individual light in isolation. Quite frustrating, as this seems like fundamental operation of the lights that shouldn't be malfunctioning. (mix of color lights and regular). Also, the app is sooo slow to connect when I open it. I'm regularly standing there waiting for 20 to 30 seconds.
