Philips is a name that used to be synonymous with shavers, radios, speakers, and headphones. But ever since the company entered the smart lighting market with Hue, it has become a household name in an entirely new way. At the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, Philips announced a partnership with gaming company Razer to integrate with its Chroma platform, allowing gamers to synchronize lights, enhancing the overall gaming experience. The company isn't resting here as it continues to roll out lots of exciting new updates to its Hue lights. And if you're a Philips Hue user, let us tell you that not all of those features are going to be compatible with the original Hue Bridge that came with your Hue lights.

You can now control all these lights from the Philips Hue app already installed on your smartphone, the same way you used to do it before. However, you might run into some issues after the transfer. Let's mention them here, of course with the relevant fixes.

The phone should now be able to communicate with your Hue Bulbs.
