Color Match Made Easy®

Connect to your Color Muse, Color Muse SE, or Color Muse 2 color matching tools (sold
separately) for easy, on-the-spot color matching.

Scan the color of a flat surface to match to the closest paints and products. Color Muse 2
identifies a color’s sheen in addition to the closest matching colors.

Color Muse® + PANTONE® Color Subscription - works with Color Muse and Color Muse SE
devices. Color Muse 2 SUPPORT COMING SOON.

Users can access more than 16,500 Pantone colors directly through the Color Muse® app when
they subscribe to a Pantone Color Subscription in the app.


After connecting your Color Muse, Color Muse 2, or Color Muse SE device via Bluetooth, the
Color Muse app simplifies your color selection process for a faster, more confident color
matching experience. No more hassling with cumbersome fan decks, paint chips or color
swatches. Scan colors and find products that match, coordinate, and complement.

With the Color Muse app you can:
• Match scanned colors to thousands of different products within paint, carpet, flooring,
textiles, tile, apparel, wallpaper, accessories, and more
• Access dozens of brands like Behr, Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Valspar, and Sherwin-Williams
in the palm of your hand
• Compare two colors to see the exact difference between them
• View Lab, LCH, RGB, CMYK, and other color data
• Save colors and photos in folders on the app for viewing later
• Share saved colors with others through email, text, and more
• Cross reference colors between brands and materials

App works great...but

There is only the option to compare colors that you have scanned with your color muse device. I have scanned one color and am trying to match it in another brand. I don’t have the option to do that. Please consider modifying the compare color option to include non-scanned colors in the color comparison field.

Account creation now required to see history

The Sept 2020 app update prevents access to the history of previously scanned colors or comparing colors until an account is created. The previous app version allowed access to both without an account. Removing access to force account creation is annoying behavior for an app that is supporting a piece of hardware that was purchased from the company. The app should be facilitating use of the color muse, not obstructing use and collecting email addresses.

Also, after creating an account, the display of previously scanned colors only shows 4 or 5 on the screen at one time and the hex RGB codes (e.g. #B2A334) are not displayed. The previous app showed 24 colors on the screen with the RGB codes. The new app does allow adding notes to the scanned colors and downloading a spreadsheet with all the color info including the RGB codes, which are nice features. Displaying additional color info with the scans would be a useful improvement.

The 3 star review is for the Sept 2020 app, the Color Muse tool rates 5 stars - it’s small, quick, and reasonably accurate.

Hello dh868!

Many of the Color Muse features are unavailable without an account. After creating an account you will gain access to compare, saved folders, and previous scan history! If you have any trouble after creating an account please email

Easier compare would be nice

I bought the Pantone subscriotion. My usage will be in printing, where colors are specified by pantone number. It woukd be great if i could simply type in the target pantone number, do a scan, and get a delta E. Having to scan a color fan doubles the work and makes it necessary to carry a fan around with me. Perhaps this feature is present, but i could not find it.
