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.

Broken features as of the most recent update make for a truly annoyed customer. The location based Coming Home feature worked flawlessly for years and as of the past week, simply doesn't work anymore. Checked all the settings, permissions, etc - everything is set as it should be. Cleared the cache, etc - nothing. For how expensive the Hue ecosystem is, basic features such as this should simply work.

Don't waste your time. Hue used to be the best but they broke the entire system for no reason. Widgets are broken. The app signs you out whenever it feels like, and both autofill and Google sign-in don't work. Just don't waste your time with this junk. Update: geofencing is completely non-functional now, even though it originally worked fine. Widgets take multiple taps to actually work, and you have to delete and remake them to get them functioning again.

After using this version for a while, I have a couple of user experience issues I think should be considered, but I'll just do one for this review update 😉 The brightness slider is nice but, wow, it is almost impossible to get an accurate liftoff and set multiple lights to the same value. My finger always moves just enough to make the value +/- 1 or 2 percentage points from what I want. The "pill" that shows the current value should be tappable and go to an OS picker as an alternative.
