Even though I don’t use Hue Essentials myself, I am happy about this little announcement from the developers from the Netherlands. On Instagram, the team around Hue Essentials announced that the app will soon be released for the computer as well.
“We have been working on both Windows and Mac releases,” they say. “They will see the light.”
Unfortunately, the developers have not yet revealed when exactly this will happen. However, they have already confirmed that the Windows version will be the first to appear. “Just some last challenges we are facing”.
It is also unclear at the moment how extensive the range of functions of Hue Essentials will be on Windows and Mac. Certainly, you will be able to control your Hue lamps and configure accessories. It is also possible that the entertainment function, which is already available in Hue Essentials on AndroidTV, will be integrated.
