If you don’t have a bridge yet and have been relying on the Philips Hue Bluetooth App, there is interesting news for you. With the update to version 1.37.0, you can now transfer all paired lamps to the “normal” Philips Hue app with a tap of your finger. This has offered Bluetooth support for some time and should make the separate app superfluous.
Tap the banner to transfer all your Bluetooth-controlled lights into the Philips Hue app. You won’t need to add them again or rename everything – all you have to do is tap “Next.”
So switching to the Hue app should be particularly easy – but in my view this is also an imperative function to convince existing users to make the switch. In the future, there should also be more functions in the Hue app for Bluetooth users.
By the way, the Blueotooth app no longer accepts new users. Philips Hue tells us: “New users that control their lights with Bluetooth will now be redirected to the Hue app.”
