Voice controls come to the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box

After being announced at CES 2020, Signify has announced that voice control for their Hue Play HDMI Sync Box is now rolling out.

With the latest software update for the box, you can use your voice with the Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or Siri for different functions like turning the sync box on/off, change sync modes (Video, Music and Games) and switching between HDMI devices.

The update also adds the ability for the box to sync your lights to Dolby Vision and HDR10+ content, which wasn’t available when I reviewed the device.

You can also control the box using an infrared TV remote such as a Harmony remote.

To get the update for your Hue Play HDMI Sync Box, just follow the instructions in the Hue Sync app for Android or iOS.

The Hue Play HDMI Sync Box is now available in Canada for $299 CAD from Best Buy Canada.
