Starting today, the popular Philips Hue smart lights have been deeply integrated with Spotify. Thanks to this, users will be able to synchronize their lights with playlists in the music service.
New algorithms will analyze each track in real time and independently change the lighting, coordinating its brightness and color with the rhythm, mood, genre and tempo of the music. The algorithm can even take into account factors such as volume and tone.
Users will need Hue Bridge and Hue lamps for the new feature to work, and everything can be controlled from the proprietary Philips Hue app. In this case, the smartphone will be used only at the setup stage. After that, the function will work on its own.
Starting today, the Philips Hue and Spotify integration is in test mode. You can try it in the Philips Hue 4 app. Philips representatives promise that testing of the new feature will be completed in October, and it will become available to users on an ongoing basis.
