Even though there are apps and voice assistants, in my opinion there is no way around smart switches for Philips Hue. It is simply incredibly practical to be able to control the light directly from the sofa or in passing. There's one question I keep stumbling over, the most recent of which was posed by Marian in our Community section: I intend to use a smart ceiling light with the Friends of Hue switches from Senic.
With the introduction of Matter, Philips Hue wants to finally change the course here sometime in spring, the story should be settled anyway. Perhaps they are already the harbingers. In the Alexa app, switches from Philips Hue are currently showing up, at least for the first time. So if you take a look at the devices section of the Alexa app and are surprised that suddenly numerous new devices have been found, then these could be accessories such as the Philips Hue dimmer switch or the Hue Tap Dial Switch.
