I just watched Insteon CEO Joe Dada use Philips Hue and state Insteon integrates with it.

Though on Philips Hue website I see nothing mentioning these bulbs speak the Insteon protocol.

Anyone know how he did this magic?

The Hub Pro works with other HomeKit-enabled devices like the new Hue.

When I look at the specs on Hub Pro, it appears it only works with IOS devices. So by changing from Hub to Hub Pro, because perhaps you would like to use Philips Hue, you are no longer able to use Windows or Android devices with your entire home automation system, correct?

Yes, all HomeKit gear is designed to work with Siri and Apple products.

If you have the Hue with the older round hub you have to upgrade to their Homekit enabled square hub.

you could also use something like indigo or the ISY994 to talk to HUE. Those are more complicated than the hub but they allow you to use HUE with Insteon
