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.

Bug fixes and performance improvements

    Horrible UI. The clickable area for buttons is so tiny you have to repeatedly tap for it to register. Labs has a “Done” button that discards whatever changes you’ve made if you don’t realize that you have to scroll down to look for the “save” button. This app has been awful for years.

  2. This was a 5-star app and it’s still pretty good, but what happened to being able to change the color of all of the lights in a room at once? There used to be the color wheel that would do this, but now it seems I first have to click on a single light before being able to access the color wheel. This seems like a regression in the functionality of the app. Please fix 🙂

  3. The old app was better, it was easier to use and always able to discover new lights. It takes me hours to get lucky enough to add one new light. Even if I use the Serial Numbers, the new lights just blank. Since I have 4 hubs and close to 150 lights; I think I have some experience in adding lights. Get ready for a lot of headaches folks when adding new lights.

  4. It’s ok. It provides some basic functionality to get you up and running with your lights. For those looking for more granular control to include shifting colors at certain times with various brightness levels, it immediately becomes tedious. There is a Hue Labs, but these are even less intuitive, and as best I can tell, not created by users. There are minor annoyances, like a slider for brightness levels without the ability to just type in a value. No ability to copy/paste settings, etc

  5. D W dice:

    Old app was a solid 4. New app blows. Slow. Doesn’t connect. Overly complicated and clunky. A dozen clicks to do something that used to take 1 or 2. Making sliders go to the edge of the screen on devices that have swipe from the side gestures is an idiotic design choice. Widgets are useless and lost most functionality. Last review was deleted so reposting.

  6. App has up and down history. Last year, update made widgets unusable. That was fixed several weeks later. All was good until an update one month ago which caused: a) widget buttons need to be tapped 3 times 1st – does nothing 2nd- to turn ‘off’ (even though it’s not on) 3rd – to actually turn on. b) my home theater remote no longer controls the lights. One button press would turn lights off and equipment on. Now, I can only use the hue app to control lighting. This is getting frustrating!

  7. The upgraded version of the app is location aware like the previous version, except this time, it’s NOT WORKING… And they call it an upgrade! That’s total garbage, frustrating and a waste of money! Stay away from the pricey Philips Hue Products and get yourself the cheapest system you can find. I set up a custom color to power on the gradient light strip attached to the TV… That custom color worked for a solid week… Now when it powers on it does its own thing and goes to a default color!!!

  8. It took me a little while to warm up to the updated app design, mostly because I found the new visuals uncharacteristic of Android apps, as well as excessive side-scrolling, but I will say working with the assortment of “default” scenes is improved (can try without saving; no bloat) and I like how automations are set up. However: the app can be sluggish. Widgets are completely unreliable, even on wifi. Strongly dislike how my remote must always have 5 scenes, no more, no less.

  9. curtis b dice:

    So fast to load and precision control. Unrivaled smart lighting interface (the lights are pretty decent too.) Edit: I’ve taken away all stars. I got a new phone and the app will not let me just log in. I can’t reach the hue bridge button and I’m not trying to set up the bridge, just connect to my account that worked fine on my old phone. Why do I need to find the bridge and the button? Why not just let me log in? Very stupid.

  10. 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. Update: geofencing is completely non-functional now, even though it originally worked fine. Widgets take multiple taps to actually do anything and even then they’re very slow.

  11. Prefer the old widget style. The new widgets take up more space on the screen, are harder and clunkier to create, and i have the press the icon 3 times to get it to work. The old widgets allowed me to customize the icon on the screen and now they all look the same. Takes longer to find the right button.

  12. 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.

  13. Nathan H dice:

    Very disappointed in the latest update. It’s supposed to let me have two bridges on one account. I’m also missing some new scenes that were supposed to be available in latest version. This is on fully updated pixel 6 pro. Please fix!! 🙏 Edit – finally got the second bridge set up but now realizing I can’t control all of my lights at once. I use scenes in zones that alter the lighting in the whole house – inside and out w one click of the scene. I lose because I’m a great Hue customer???

  14. Steep learning curve, not well designed. Every setting should be in one place for a room or bulb but it isn’t. When going to a room/bulb you can only select a static color. Want to set a schedule? Different location. Want to set a dynamic color changing scene? Different location, and only some can be customized while others can’t. Want to see what colors are actually in a built in dynamic scene? Can’t do it. Want to schedule a dynamic scene? You can’t do that at all. Needs a fresh revamp..

  15. You know what’s great about this app? You never know when you’ll be able to turn on or off your lights! I thought I liked sleeping with the lights off, but with the help of the new Philips Hue app, I’ve discovered that endlessly trying to make that happen just isn’t worth it. A pillow over my face blocks out all light. Thanks Philips! Update… The light to the right of my bed turned off! The light to the left is still unresponsive, but this is surely an acceptable compromise. Thanks Philips!

  16. Power Loss Recovery…..horrible. There used to be an easy way to keep lights last known setting when power goes out but with this setting my entire house comes on. Waking the whole family at night and had the entire house on all day when we weren’t home. Please revert back to the old setting and verbiage. I want the lights that were off at the time the power went out to stay off. I don’t want to download another app, the one from the manufacturer should work just fine. But it doesn’t.

  17. Mostly good app. Would love to see way more themes, and the ability to create your own. App is somewhat unintuitive but get easier over time. Lacks some features (like programming your own rotating sequence of colors, adjusting brightness of a scene while it plays, modifying flame color, creating custom scenes, etc) that other apps with much less expensive equipment has. Happy for the progress, but excited for the future of the app.

  18. E S dice:

    Thanks for updating the app with the ability to sync music to the lights. Can you please not tie it to Spotify? I don’t use it and would prefer to use my own music provider. Also, when you add a scene and there is a play button so that it constantly changes, I am pretty sure before I could modify the brightness. So for example I could press play and then make it brighter or dimmer. But now after I press play if I mess w/how bright it is it stops it. So I am stuck to the predetermined brightness

  19. 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.

  20. Ryan S dice:

    Claims to link with Alexa, but am unable due to error “We were unable to link Hue at this time. Please try again later.” Been trying for almost a week now. Also, app does not feature “quick color” settings, instead just offering color swatches to set. It’s nice to have options but when you’re trying to sync colors, it gets frustrating having to be that precise.

  21. Amar P dice:

    Love being able to change our house’s exterior ambiance based on the season or our favorite teams or anything! The app is pretty powerful and actually very consistent and reliable. It would be nice to share scenes with others (holidays, sports). The only thing I really don’t like is that you are not able to remotely control more than one hub at a time. I have hubs at my work and at home and at my parents house, but the app doesn’t let me control all of them at the same time.

  22. Fix the widgets! I want one tap to turn off the lights before bed. Since the last update, the widget does nothing. Then I have to launch the app and wait for it to load, then find the right switch. It’s just a little bit of frustration I don’t need when I’m trying to wind down for the night. Wish the app had a Simple Mode – I only care about light or dark, warm or cool, not elaborate artisanal colorscapes.

  23. I like my hue bulbs but I can hardly stand the app. It lags a lot. Awhile back there was a big update and ever since then I’ve had issues creating simple routines. I think the Automations page is overly complicated. I miss having the scene options on a single page vs having to add them to a favorites page from a library before I can use them. The lights also will revert to a completely different setting before beginning to fade. This means at night they auto shift from dim and comfy to bright.

  24. Wiggets stopped working which is pretty frustrating for ease of use. It’s not a very intuitive app and it’s frustrating you have to continually create and save scenes to an individual room vs using across the house. I like how some new scenes allow for the colors to cycle and change automatically but would like to have the option to create myself . I love the lights but the software could be wayyyy better

  25. Honestly the sliders and switches are too small. But the bars are huge and colored pretty. But I need to dial in on the slider and buttons to actually use it and it’s tedious. What if the big colored bars were the sliders instead? And switches bigger? I don’t need to edit my scenes more often than I need to change dimming level and the light switch

  26. The app is stable and pretty easy to use. There are many options to choose from. Only issue is with using a zone with HDMI SYNC BOX, I have been unable to sync more lights to the entertainment zone, after removing the new lights from the original zone they were in. I called hue support and still have not been able to find a way to make it work. Will update if I can resolve. UPDATE: just changed phones, it was really easy to recover all settings, back to normal in no time.

  27. The app itself is great and does everything you’d expect it to do, it’s normally a 4- or 5-star experience. However the mid-February 2022 update broke the widget functionality which I’d come to use quite frequently to control my lights without opening the app. It’s disappointing that a fix hasn’t been pushed.

  28. Reveiw was deleted, so i’ll use this opportunity to reiterate that the redesign is highkey trash and less useful than the original. They murdered the most useful aspect of it, the widget bar with customizable buttons, only to change them to single use buttons youd have to fill a whole screen with just to get the same functionality the bar had. These lights are super expensive so kneecapping the whole app just to change the look is unacceptable and I doubt I will ever purchase hue lights again.

  29. The app refuses to operate and allow any control of my lights whenever Phillips decides that there is a crucial update. This is nonsense: I do not exist to serve this technology. This has happened more than once, and another time will drive me away from the hue system entirely. I neither need nor want the excess features, and I would be quite happy without an internet. connected device at all.

  30. While the app is nice and performs well; it even has extravagant themes and a “Lab”. The problem is that it lacks a few basic feature sets you’d expect from any smart light. There is no native sleep timer, and no way to adjust the rate/speed at which the light dims on or off. Lowering the rating because I saw a table lamp for 5USD that had a dimming sleep timer. This is honestly becoming unacceptable that an ecosystem that can run 100’s of USD, lacks basic functionality that a $5 lamp has.

  31. I have downgraded the app to one star due to the ongoing failures they have responding to their failure to fix log in problems for out of home control. It used to work. Now it doesn’t and they have locked me out of my account and no amount of password resets allow me to get it unlocked….and there is no phone number or contact info to get help. Support counts! Lack of support counts too! It’s a decent product when in home but a huge failure for out of home control.

  32. App stopped controlling my lights. Trying uninstall and reinstall. I can still control the lights through the Samsung SmartThings app. Uninstall and reinstall didn’t work. Turning on/off the light or adjusting brightness manually doesn’t work. However changing scenes works. Definitely something wrong with their update, especially since it works fine from SmartThings.

  33. Rick NSD dice:

    Works well…when it works and it often doesn’t work. Routines randomly stop working, or work one day but not the next. Support (which is just a list of FAQ – no live support) says ‘delete and redo the routine’ but that didn’t help. Worked well the first couple of years, now I never know if the lights will be on or not. When I replace it, it won’t be with another Hue device.

  34. This app has been turning into junk. Unable to select custom colors in automation since update. I previously had a timer for a plain red light to turn on in key areas so I could wake and prepare for work without disturbing the rest of the household. Now I only have a series of pre-selected color/reading/daylight tones that don’t work for me at all. I just want my special ops lights back. Also, Hue Labs is worthless and the lame HTTP integration is awful Just embed it into the program natively.

  35. Latest update (4.14.0) broke the linking with Alexa. After fighting for hours last night trying to figure out why I couldn’t re-link with the Hue skill, I gave up and went to bed. Ended up reverting back to 4.13.0, and was able to link Alexa with the Hue skill again on the first try (had just tried again before uninstalling 4.14.0, and it failed). This needs to be fixed! For now, I have turned off auto updates for the Hue app.

  36. Terrible now, laggy, can’t find lights.buttons are difficult to press, open random other options because the design is horrible. Used to work flawlessly. Layout is really bad, can’t adjust all the lighting from one view. A total UX nightmare. If this is what we should come to expect from a Philips product I may never buy another.

  37. Okay so now the location services do not work. And may I ask why? So basically now we have to use either Alexa or Google home the controlled lights. The native app does not work the way it should. This makes no sense to me. Considering you just updated the app and now certain things don’t work. Usually when an app is updated it should fix problems, not create problems.

  38. Expensive, but I’m in love!! I really like the options i have for different lighting, I got the button and now I want more! Really wish I had stocked up on more of this back at Christmas time!! Got it as a gift for my wife and she may be plotting to redo the entire house with and around these lights. The only drawback is the price, wish they had bigger bundles!!

  39. Everything works great except the app that is supposed to let you sync lights with PC. There is a charge for this app and all it does is give you screenshot of set up. It will absolutely n byn not let you do anything at all, useless app and a ripoff. I linked spotify, hue app, and Alexis together and everything works great. I haven’t purchased sync box for tv yet so can’t comment on that. But I love the lights.

  40. Mike Loux dice:

    Widgets suddenly stopped working for me today (was fine yesterday). I tap a widget, the Hue app registers a notification, and then…nothing. Gotta go into the app to turn on my living room lights. Not exactly a hardship, but defeats the purpose of widgets. Noticed there was an updated TOS doc, which I approved. That didn’t fix anything (would have been pretty wack if it had, but working is better than not working, so I would have put up with it). Wonder what else broke?
