If you don't have a Pixel 6/6 Pro - then this app is phenomenal. I've loved everything about it. I stopped using the proper Hue app and stuck to this for years. However, ever since I switched phones to a Pixel 6 Pro, I can't use the feature that made me the happiest - Dance Sensation. Never had issues using the internal phone mic to sync the lights before. But now, when active, the lights are dead as if it's not picking up any sound. Looking on Reddit, seems to be Pixel 6/pro specific. 😞

I've bought the app with the one purpose of using it together with Tasker for automation, and for that I would give zero stars. I made a simple profile to turn on living room lights when my phone connects to home WiFi, and the results are really poor. Initially it seems to work when testing, if the app is opened. But on a real life situation, when I'm coming from outside the house, I often get "unable to connect to the bridge". I've done some testing and can elaborate but space here is limited.

Fantastic App! I no longer use the regular Phillips app. The only reason I removed a star is I found that when you add scenes to your effects, the effects don't take into account light on/off state in the scenes. For example, if I want to create a sunrise effect that starts out with just a light strip but then transitions to another scene that has a light strip + some bulbs on, it doesn't do this and you either start out with everything on, or the bulbs never turn on. On the flip side, if you have a going to sleep effect and want certain bulbs to turn off, even if they are off in the scene that is part of the effect, if they were once on, they stay on. Other than that, great app and thanks for making a more capable Hue solution available to us!

Thanks for your feedback. Your second point about the sleep effect should work correctly in the latest versions. Could you try that out and let us know?
We are still looking into your first suggestion about the sunrise, how we can make that clear to the users.
