Philips smart lights integrate with Spotify | Digital Trends Spanish

The light system smart from Philips, called Philips Hue, now it will sync better with Spotify so that the lights change colors or intensity to the rhythm of the music.

Philips has signed a partnership with Spotify that will allow linking the Philips Hue accounts with those of Spotify, which will give new life to the lighting system since they will “react” according to what is being played. According to Philips, the integration will work with all existing Hue bulbs connected via the Hue Bridge device.

Of course, there are some small restrictions; Initially, this works only through the Hue Bridge and not with the Hue lights that use Bluetooth connectivity. In addition, for now the integration is only with Spotify -valid for both free accounts and Premium accounts-, so the rest of similar services are left out.

The integration between the Philips Hue and Spotify began on September 1 and to activate it, the first thing is to update the mobile application. Then, you have to activate the early access to the functionality and link the two existing accounts.

Once the process is done, the Philips Hue system will analyze the song being played and create a kind of script, according to the rhythm of the music and also to the style itself or the feeling that evokes a particular song. At the same time, it is still possible to personalize the experience by adjusting the brightness of the lights or the color palette to be used.

This new integration between Philips Hue and Spotify is definitely going to give these smart lights a new use, beyond turning them on or off from an app or scheduling them to turn on / off at certain times.
