Beautiful soundscapes with matching lighting. Immerse in the holiday spirit with Christmas soundscapes in various themes like Family dinner, Polar Express and much more!

Let’s go over the controls and learn how to use them.

This is the first screen of Hue Xmas Soundscapes



Play a preset by tapping one of the pictures. See and hear what happens (make sure you have some bulbs selected in het Lights tab). Holiday sounds with synced lighting effects will start playing. Don’t forget to swipe down for more presets.

For the best experience we advise you to connect to an external speaker or headphones. Hue Xmas Soundscapes has built in delay correction when streaming to Airplay or Bluetooth speakers.



Once you’ve selected a preset, the preset setting screen will show.


You can adjust the brightness of your (selected) lights with the brightness slider. If you like another color tap the manual color switch to choose your favourite color using the slider that appears below the switch. Dynamic saturation will make the lights change smoothly within the chosen color to make it more lively.


Every soundscape consists of several sound categories, which contains one or multiple sounds. You can adjust the soundscape to your own liking by using the different sliders and controls.

Occurrence controls: if there is an upper slider, you can adjust the occurrence of the sound and light effects.

Volume controls: The bottom sliders are volume sliders. Adjust all different sounds to your own taste. To mute a sounds and cancel the light effects completely, tap the switch.

Single shot: press a pulsating icon of the effect you want to hear directly. If provided, the chosen effect will start immediately.

Scroll down to find ‘mute all sounds’. If you only want the light effects, use the switch to mute all sounds.

Changed all sliders and want to get back to the original soundscape? Use Reset to default. All sliders will go back to their original (default) state.

Use the play/pause button to start or pause a preset.

Tap the white down arrow in the upper left corner to go back to the main screen.



Whenever you’ve dismissed the preset settings screen and a preset is still playing, the now playing screen will appear just above the tab bar. Press the red arrow to go back to the preset settings. Press the play/pause button to pause or resume the preset. Use the Audio Route button to connect your external speaker or headphones.

If you’ve set a sleep timer the title will also show the remaining time before the app will sleep.



In the right upper corner there is an option menu.
