How do you like the tile view from the Philips Hue Bluetooth app?

Should the design also be included in the regular Hue app?

As a user of more than 50 lamps, I'm usually not a candidate for the Bluetooth app, which only allows you to pair up to 10 lamps. However, it is worth having a look into the Bluetooth app, because there is a tile view for some time now. I wonder: Would this design be something for the “real” Hue-App?

First of all, let's have a look at the settings in the Bluetooth app and the default list view, you can see it on the following bold:

If you select the tile view in the settings, the Bluetooth app's home page will first show you the scenes, which you can then activate with a tap. Directly below you will see all the lamps, either in the usual list view or in a tile view. The following screenshots will show you what this looks like.

Now the question for you: Do you like this tile view? Would this be something for the normal Hue-App? I'm curious about your opinions in the comments.

  1. Yes please! I just saw the title view at a friends house and I ran to see if the regular app has it, but I was disappointed it doesn’t. When can we expect this view on the regular app?

  2. I was appalled to see this view in the android Hue app after the most recent update. It’s bulky and unintuitive. Previously, I could see all Rooms on my screen. Now I have to scroll down to get to some. Whereas lights within a room were previously easy to adjust precisely, one after another, now they’re not. And I’m bombarded with these stupid scene tiles. I don’t use scenes, but haven’t found any way to get rid of them.

    Sorry if this sounds hostile. It’s not directed at you. I’m just really disappointed with the new view.

    Any ideas of how to revert to the old view?
