Philips Hue and Google Assistant

Philips Hue smart lights work with Ok Google for voice control of your connected smart lights.

Control your home with your voice

Your lights, your way

Set the mood instantly

Need to unwind? Just say “Ok Google, set Relax”. Having a get-together? Get instant party decor with colorful light.

Sleep easier, wake up naturally

Use Gentle Sleep and Wake commands to automate your bedroom lights. Slowly dim the lights at bedtime, or get a personal sunrise for a natural wakeup call.⁴

Say the word for surround lighting

Use Google to control the Hue sync box, the ultimate in immersive entertainment lighting. Start and stop light sync, change sync mode, and more with just your voice.

Gain peace of mind

Never forget to turn off the lights! Ask Google if you’ve left any lights on — and then turn them off by saying, “Turn off all the lights”

Routines with Google Assistant

Pair other smart home products with Google Assistant and Philips Hue to set up more complex home automations.⁵

Automate your daily routines

Create a complete morning routine: at 7:00 am, your kitchen lights turn to Energize, your coffee starts to brew, and your Assistant gives you the traffic report for your morning commute.

Get lights that react to you

Let your lights respond to you — and whoever else is home. Google Assistant recognizes who’s leaving (and who’s home!) to toggle the lights accordingly based on their presence.
