Philips Hue 4.1: Control of individual lights becomes easier

Update soon available in the App Store

Signify has had to take some criticism around the major update of the Hue app. In particular, the omission of widgets and timers has not gone down particularly well with the community. But also in some other places, more clicks have recently become necessary than it was the case in the old app.

With the upcoming update to version 4.1, Philips Hue seems to have changed a few things. It should once again be possible to change the brightness of a lamp directly in the room view. A long tap on the desired lamp should be all that is needed. Until now, you had to tap on the lamp and could only adjust the brightness in the following detail view.

Also planned is a simpler re-sorting of scenes and lamps in the room view. In addition, the update to version 4.1 is supposed to take care of more than 20 minor bugs and some problems with HomeKit.

From my point of view, such an update would at least be a start, although these are certainly not the big changes that some users would like to see. At least the timers are supposed to return, and Apple’s restrictions on widgets are a problem.
