Maker of the Philips Hue line, Signify, is partnering with Spotify to sync indoor lighting directly with your music’s beats.
The partnership is a first-of-its-kind solution in the sense that, unlike options existing till now, including Signify’s own Hue Sync app, Phillips and Spotify connect in a way that doesn’t require external apps listening in.
Instead, the Hue Bridge will tap directly into Spotify once accounts have been linked.
The collaboration will also provide a better experience by letting the Hue system adjust lighting effects to your music. It will gather specific data about the music playing, including its genre, tempo, volume, mood, and more. However, users can also manipulate the lighting effects by customizing them in the app.
To get a hold of the system, some Hue owners will have to purchase a Hue Bridge. Furthermore, some may want to upgrade to newer colored bulbs that can be used over Bluetooth without the dedicated hub.
However, a paid Spotify subscription will not be required to use the service, which has already started rolling out.
It should be available to all Hue users within the next few days.
In related news, Signify announced many new Hue lights, including more filament lights, brighter bulb configurations, and updated lamps.
