The first-ever deep integration of lighting and music presents users with an experience like no other. The new feature was rolled out, among Philips Hue App 4 users from September 1, 2021. This new algorithm creates an advanced light script for each song, the lights match the beat of the song along with the song mood, genre, and tempo.
A world leader in lighting, Signify announced, Philips Hue and Spotify, together provide consumers around the globe, with an immersive light and music show in the privacy of their homes. The Philips Hue system is further enriched with a new algorithm, that analyses the individual metadata of any song to create the light effect in terms of flashing, dimming, brightening, and colour-changing to reflect the song’s rhythm and mood.
Spotify & Philips Hue have teamed up to enable this awesome experience through the Philips Hue app itself. With the addition of a Sync tab in the Philips Hue app, the experience is easily personalized.
