Whether you’re relaxing to mood music or channelling your inner rockstar, your music becomes an experience you hear, see and feel.

A symphony of light and sound

Philips Hue smart lighting and Spotify music are in perfect harmony. Make the most of your music and change the way you experience it.

Deep integration in the app

Deep integration

Philips Hue generates light scripts to reflect the beat of the music and with Spotify, the algorithm is even more advanced. Light scripts are tuned perfectly to each song, matching the genre, mood and metre.

Personalise the way you sync

Finetune your experience by adjusting the intensity, brightness and even the colour palette of your lights. Your music is personal so your lights should be too.
