Philips Hue smart lightbulbs are becoming better in a way that will make you want to dance.
Signify, a Philips spinoff that makes lighting products, announced Wednesday that Philips Hue lightbulbs are now integrated with Spotify. A real-time algorithm analyzes the metadata of each song you play on the music streaming platform to make the lights “dance” to the music.
A Philips Hue lightbulb, for instance, will “flash, dim, brighten, and change color right along with the beat, mood, genre, and tempo of any music on Spotify.”
In the Philips Hue app, the user can further customize this. The user can start and stop the synchronization, change the brightness and intensity of the lights, and modify the color palette at any time.
Individuals with Philips Hue lights and a Hue Bridge will be able to use the feature for free. Philips Hue App 4 users will have early access to the new feature beginning Sept. 1, and it will become a permanent addition to the app after October.
Signify also launched a couple of new products on Wednesday, including the Philips Hue Play gradient light tube, which blends multiple colors in a single lamp, designed to be positioned above or below your TV, the Philips Hue gradient Signe floor and table lamps, the Philips Hue ambiance gradient lightstrip, and the new Philips Hue Filament bulbs in White ambiance.
