    Philips Hue Play is ready to use by simply plugging it in. Connecting to the Philips Hue bridge and Philips Hue app, it can be personalized, allowing you to choose from 16 million different colors to create the perfect ambiance to suit every mood. You can also synchronize it to your entertainment experience. Feel like you’re at the cinema when snuggled up on your sofa, bring a whole new level of excitement and immersion to your gaming experience or perhaps you want to recreate the colors of your last tropical getaway at home; it’s all possible with Philips Hue Play.


    You can create an even more immersive experience by using Hue Sync, available for PC and Mac with the latest software updates. Sync it with your entertainment to bring a whole new level of excitement to your gaming and a unique atmosphere to TV or movie viewing.
