Philips Hue Sync TV app for Samsung TVs
The primary announcement may show controversial and rattle just a few cages. Philips Hue is launching a local app for Samsung TVs
The brand new Philips Hue Sync TV app synchronises Philips Hue sensible lights with all the pieces that’s proven in your Samsung TV. Customers can get pleasure from a seamless and immersive mild syncing expertise when gaming or watching a film, even through native apps similar to Netflix and Disney+. The app helps all picture codecs, similar to 8K, 4K and HDR 10+.
The press launch signifies that the Philips Hue Sync TV app gives all the identical performance as you’d get from the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Field.
That each one sounds superb, however the huge catch is that this can be a paid-for app, and so they need £115 for it! There are only a few apps which are priced that prime, and so they are usually area of interest apps for knowledgeable market. I’m actually not conscious of any apps on a TV OS that price this.
On the flip aspect, the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Field prices £230, and the native app will truly work higher than the Sync Field because it ought to help 8K and 4K/120Hz. Primarily based on that, the Hue Sync app is arguably good worth for cash. I feel my predominant situation with it’s the reality you might be both caught with Samsung TVs indefinitely or will lose entry to the app once you change manufacturers.
Other than residence leisure improvements, there are extra new Philips Hue merchandise to announce. With a smooth black design, the Philips Hue Resonate downward wall mild gives warm-to-cool white and color mild that shines downwards in any out of doors house.

Its mild could be narrowed with the included clip to personalise the looks of its triangle of sunshine, good for narrower partitions or pillars.
The Philips Hue Faucet dial change is now additionally out there with a brand new spherical mini mount as a substitute for the sq. wall mount.
Lastly, the Philips Hue Go moveable desk lamp had beforehand been introduced, however the value and availability weren’t launched. It now has an official launch date of the 21st of February and can price £140.
