"Hey Cortana, turn on the lights"

Your smart home can now respond to the sound of your voice. With a simple command, Cortana can dim your Philips lights, adjust the thermostat, and more.

All you have to do is enable the Philips Hue skill for Cortana, and you can interact with your Philips Hue lights. Just ask Cortana to turn your lights on/off, or dim your lights to the right brightness. More features and functionalities will be added soon.
