🚨Sound the alarms🚨…Nanoleaf has a new integration with LIGHTLINK and you really need to know about it! 

Nanoleaf and LIGHTLINK app integration

First things first, what is LIGHTLINK?

LIGHTLINK is a new way to enjoy music with your Nanoleaf lights, allowing them to uniquely react and dance to your favorite songs—try it on Lines, Shapes, Canvas, and Light Panels.

LIGHTLINK connects your Nanoleaf lights directly with the LIGHTLINK Spotify playlist. Every song experience is carefully created by a professional lighting designer. The result is a custom, musical work of art that you can enjoy on your Nanoleaf lights at home by simply pushing play on Spotify. It’s like hearing your favorite song for the first time all over again!

Now you may be asking, how is this different from Nanoleaf’s Rhythm Music Visualizer?

LIGHTLINK light shows are more similar to what you would see at a concert, with the lighting experience made specifically for each song. Nanoleaf’s Rhythm Music Visualizer hears music, detects the sound, and then uses an algorithm to create a dynamic animation. LIGHTLINK is different, it’s driven by people interpreting music and adding an emotional component. By understanding the structure and dynamics of music, special moments for listeners are created. 

Where did the inspiration for LIGHTLINK come from, you ask?

I think we can agree that there’s a certain magic in a moment that can grab your attention and completely immerse you! ✨

That magic is where LIGHTLINK comes into the picture. Founder Jon Sodemann shared, “LIGHTLINK was created to bring that concert experience home with you.” You can capture that performance and the mesmerizing lights that are so perfectly synchronized to make you feel each beat, melody, and transition. Plus, you can share the magic and the shows you’ve created with other LIGHTLINK users. 

Here’s How To Get Started:

There are some vital things to know before you start your musical awakening.
