‘Tis the season to be jolly! And what better way to mark the occasion than an upcoming Philips Hue update, which brings a tidal wave of festive goodness straight to your living room with a selection of Christmas-themed lighting scenes.
That new particular update, version 4.10 of the Hue app, could roll out across the App Store and Google Play Store as early as next week, which means that the festive Hue scenes will arrive on the best iPhone and best Android phones in time for Christmas itself.
Hue rolls out the festive fun
As reported by hueblog.de, users can look forward to a boost in the Hue light scenes gallery, including the addition of seven separate Christmas lighting scenes, as well as the ability to activate these as dynamic scenes in users' various rooms. Dynamic scenes are Hue's way of letting different lamps in a room shine contrasting, but well-aligned colors, plus a way to slow down color transitions that should help add some festive zing to the room's atmosphere.
