How do you make Hue lights dance to music?

Answered by Cody Janus

To make your Philips Hue lights dance to the music playing from the Spotify app, you can easily do so by following these steps:

1. Firstly, ensure that you have both the Philips Hue app and the Spotify app downloaded and installed on your device. Make sure they are both up to date.

2. Open the Spotify app and start playing your favorite music. You can choose any song, album, or playlist that you want.

3. Now, switch to the Philips Hue app and navigate to the “Sync” tab. This is where you can find the option to sync your lights with the music.

4. On the Sync tab, you will see a list of available entertainment areas. These are the rooms or groups of lights that you have set up in the Philips Hue app. Select the area where you want the lights to react to the music.

5. Once you have chosen the entertainment area, you can customize the intensity and brightness of the lights by adjusting the sliders on the screen. This allows you to create the desired ambiance and atmosphere for your music listening experience.

6. tap the “Start Light Sync” button to begin syncing your lights with the music. The lights will then start to react in real-time, pulsating and changing colors in sync with the rhythm and beats of the music.

It’s worth noting that the light sync feature is currently only available for certain Philips Hue products, such as the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box or the Philips Hue Sync app for computers. So, make sure you have the compatible hardware or software to enjoy this feature.

I personally love using this feature when hosting parties or simply when I want to enhance my music listening experience. It adds an extra layer of immersion and excitement to the atmosphere, making the music come alive visually.

In summary, to make your Philips Hue lights dance to music from the Spotify app, open the Philips Hue app, go to the Sync tab, choose the entertainment area, customize the settings, and start the light sync. Get ready to enjoy a visually captivating and immersive music experience!
