Philips Hue announced the Philips Hue Sync TV app almost exactly a year ago. Around CES in Las Vegas, the company teamed up with Samsung to present a solution that analyses the screen content directly on the TV and sends the corresponding commands to the Hue Bridge to light up selected lamps in real time to match the TV picture.
Just this afternoon I reported on the topic of Sync Box and external inputs, now there is more than interesting news from Philips Hue. At the CES in Las Vegas they announced that the Philips Hue Sync TV App will be released on Samsung Smart TVs. Owners of Samsung QLED TVs built in 2022 (from model Q60) can thus do without the Hue Sync Box.
About a month ago I was able to tell you that Samsung was working on Hue Sync support for its TVs. Unfortunately, I now have some bad news for you, as Samsung's connection with Philips Hue turns out to be less extensive than initially thought. In a statement to SamMobile, Samsung revealed: “In the coming months, we hope to announce more details of an expanded partnership between Samsung SmartThings and Philips Hue that will provide enhanced music experiences.”
This could be a really exciting thing. According to information from the blog SamMobile, Samsung is working on a major update for its Internet of Things platform SmartThings. And this could also be really exciting for all Philips Hue users. According to the blog, Samsung is working on support for Philips Hue Sync.
