App release 1.12 (iOS & Android)
New icon (grey) and name (Philips Hue generation 1). This allows us to offer you the choice of two Philips Hue apps in the App Store and Google Play Store, as we prepare to launch the much-anticipated new Philips Hue app, this spring.
The firmware upgrade will roll out from Monday April 18, 2016:
The Netherlands - April 18 (activated)
Germany - April 19 (activated)
Austria, Switzerland - April 26 (activated)
USA - April 26 (activated)
Just a few thoughts- I hope this is not a move to isolate Hub v1 users from the new app and features.
Is anyone in the Philips v2 beta group and what are your experiences?
Has anyone heard the release date of the v2 app?
My experience with the Hue app has been nothing but crashes on the newer phones. 3rd party apps such as Hue Pro work great. I updated the hub firmware today and everything is still working with ST (so far).
