Those were previous generation bulbs without Bluetooth.

Looking into this, reading reviews etc, I was getting the impression that maybe the Bluetooth functionality is not very good. Do you have any experience of the feature?

Why bother getting Hue and only use Bluetooth? No routines, no geo fencing, no mimic

No experience. It’s just a justification for the price difference. Old stock vs new stock.

Yeah like you I get the impression they're crap with Bluetooth - if you want colour changing bulbs you have to be in the same room as to control, B&Q do them for £10 with an IR remote control! To me, the whole point of smart lighting is all the extra features you get with Hue when you have the bridge.

Not knocking you @ThomEmer - you're absolutely right - I personally don't feel the Bluetooth feature justifies the extra cost

Well I could use the functionality, if it was actually useful and gave full control of brightness and colour, because I could use it to allow my kids to control bulbs in their rooms with their phones without giving them access to the hub. But I would also want the bulbs to be accessible to the hub as well so I could set routines etc. I need to do some more research.

I have the older ones and the newer ones, the older ones aren't a patch on the colour reproduction of the new ones,the old ones are great until you use the newer ones, Bluetooth is handy but the bridge can bring much more functionality than Bluetooth, these aren't cheap so you really should use them to there full potential

What have they changed interms of colour production?

No idea my friend, but certain colours especially the greens are way more vivid , hugely noticeable when old and new bulbs in the same room

Seem odd that they haven’t made a big deal of the colour enhancements to tempt those already with the older bulbs and the bridge to upgrade
Im setup like this, 3 kids, all have the Alexa app on their phone, I have the Hue App, we also have a bridge. Works well they can tell Alexa to change their lights, or control via the app (or HomeKit). You get full control of everything - colour and brightness. I have a few routines setup that follow the sun essentially. Exploring the inconnecthue app too allow all 5 of us to use geofencing. That, Alexa, Hue, HomeKit and IFFTT and it’s all going well really. Bit of a learning curve but 17 bulbs deep now, kitchen has 12 GU10’s, 5 dimmer switches for people that don’t engage with assistants.

Sorry What’s geofencing?

The lights will come on or turn off when you leave/arrive - using your location as the trigger.
I've got the Bluetooth ones and functionality is very limited. Just invested in a hue bridge today. Will make the smart home better

3rd gen bulbs are from 2016. The new bluetooth ones are 4th gen and the colour reproduction is exactly the same as 3rd. The only difference is the bluetooth functionality.

I believe the GU10 Bluetooth bulbs have better colour rendition than the previous generation. But as you say it seems the full size bulbs, and presumably the candle bulbs, are just the same.

The GU10 are now richer colours, they didn't have a 3rd gen in effect unlike the normal bulbs.
Their update was long awaited for that reason.
