I announced it quite a while ago, now it is finally available in the App Store and also in the Google Play Store. The latest update for the Philips Hue app, which at least fixes a few small things.
In the new version of the app, you can finally dim lamps directly in the room view again – to do this, you simply hold your finger down on a switched-on lamp for a long time and can then move your finger up or down to adjust the brightness.
Not yet part of the update are the dynamic scenes that Philips Hue promised for this summer. These will probably be unlocked with one of the next updates, I will definitely keep you posted here. Until then, you can take a look at all the new features of version 4.1 and then download the new update from the App Store.
