Govee Lights are a great way to add some extra flair to your music listening experience. You can use them to create a light show that goes along with the beat of your favorite songs, or you can set them to flash in time with the rhythm of the music. You can even use them to add some visual interest to your home décor.

If you’re not sure how to get started, don’t worry – it’s easy! In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps of setting up Govee Lights so that they go with music. We’ll also give you some tips on how to get the most out of your Govee Lights.

#Heading: Step 1 – Choose Your Govee Lights
The first step is to choose the Govee Lights that you want to use. There are a variety of different types of Govee lights available, so you’ll need to decide which ones will best suit your needs.

If you’re looking for a more subtle lighting effect, then consider using LED strip lights. These can be placed around the perimeter of a room or even underneath furniture for a soft and gentle light show. If you want something that’s more dramatic and eye-catching, then rope lights or string lights might be a better option. These can be hung from ceilings or wrapped around objects for a bolder look.

#Heading: Step 2 – Install Your Govee Lights
Once you’ve decided which Govee lights you want to use, it’s time to install them. Depending on the type of light, this may be as simple as peel-and-stick installation or it may require some basic wiring. Either way, follow the instructions that come with your lights carefully so that you don’t damage them.

#Heading: Step 3 – Download the Music Visualizer App
The next step is to download the Music Visualizer app onto your smartphone or tablet. This app will allow you to control your Govee lights and make them go with the music that you’re playing. It’s available for both Android and iOS devices, so be sure to get the right version for your device before proceeding.

#Heading: Step 4 – Connect Your Smartphone or Tablet to Your Speaker
##Expansion: Now that you have both the Music Visualizer app and your Govee lights installed, it’s time to connect your smartphone or tablet to your speaker system. This can usually be done via Bluetooth, but if your speaker doesn’t have Bluetooth capabilities then you’ll need to use an aux cable instead. Once everything is connected, open up the Music Visualizer app and select “Bluetooth” as your input source.

What You Will Need

4. Plug the controller into a power source using the included USB cable.
5. Press the “Music” button on the controller to start syncing your lights with your music!

Once you’ve set up your Govee lights, you’ll need to choose a music mode. The Govee app offers four different music modes:
-Normal: This mode plays music through your phone’s speaker in real-time.
-Flow: This mode plays music through your phone’s speaker and syncs the lights with the beat of the music.
-Shuffle: This mode plays music through your phone’s speaker and syncs the lights with the beat of the music in a random order.

To choose a music mode, simply open the Govee app and tap on the “Music” tab at the bottom of the screen. Then, select the mode that you want to use from the list of options.

Step Three: Play Some Music!
Once you’ve chosen a music mode, it’s time to start playing some tunes! To do this, simply open up your favorite music player (iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, etc.) and start playing a song. Your Govee lights will automatically sync with the beat of the music and change color accordingly!

Step Two: Set Up the Music

With Govee’s App, you can connect your lights to any music playing on your phone, from your favorite tunes to movies and video games. The app interprets the sound and sync the light colors and effects to match. You’ll be surprised how reactive and vivid the light show is! Plus, it’s great for parties and get-togethers.

Step Three: Play the Music

Step Four: Customize the Lights

Now it’s time to get creative! You can change the colors of the lights, make them strobe, or have them fade in and out. To do this, open the Govee Home app and go to the “Lights” page. Then, select the light you want to customize.

On the customization page, you’ll see a number of different options for changing the behavior of the light. For example, you can change the color of the light by tapping on the “Color” option. Or, if you want the light to strobe in time with the music, tap on the “Strobe” option.

Once you’ve made your changes, tap on the “Apply” button to save them. And that’s it! Now your Govee lights will behave exactly as you want them to, in perfect sync with your music!
