Description

Music Blitz sees what music you play through your Spotify app and generates a light show on LIFX bulbs in response. Rather than relying on noisy microphone input or at-the-moment audio, Music Blitz responds to the whole song and coordinates the light show in advance, giving a higher quality experience.

IMPORTANT: on Android 8.1 and 9, the battery optimizer often kills the app between songs; a more persistent version is on the horizon, but the 8.1+ experience isn't ideal right now.

View full documentation on the settings here: https://saites.github.io/music-blitz/settings.html

Options let you choose how Music Blitz detects a beat, what color chooses, which set of bulbs to choose, their brightness and blink length, and how the LIFX bulbs transitions to their new state.

Note: You MUST enable Spotify's broadcast messages via the Spotify app's settings. Music Blitz only works with Spotify and LIFX bulbs, though it may later expand to support smart bulbs other than LIFX. It requires you to be on the same wifi network as your LIFX bulbs.

Music Blitz uses your Spotify login to communicate with Spotify. The login is entirely handled by Spotify, so Music Blitz never sees your login credentials. With only this exception, Music Blitz will NEVER gather or share any of your personal information with third parties.

Music Blitz shows involve quickly changing lights. If you are sensitive to such effects, use with caution.
