Thanks for reporting this bug. It is fixed in the latest version (1.7.1 on iOS). It should be available soon, the update is currently being reviewed by Apple.

Hue Essentials version 1.7.1 is now live on the App Store. It should fix the play button and adding it to the bridge. Please let me know if all works fine now.

There are still some issues when saving it to “this device”, those will be fixed in version 1.7.2 which should be available soon.

Amazing!! Thank you so much! 5 stars!
