Carl Pei shared a glimpse at the Nothing Phone (1) and the Nothing OS that will run on it in March 2022. Nothing's creator also stated that the Nothing OS will be available to Android users shortly. Nothing unveiled the beta version of its smartphone operating system on April 28, 2022. It may be downloaded through the Google Play Store. While the Nothing Launcher was initially accessible for a limited number of handsets, it is now available for all Android 11 and above smartphones.
"Nothing Launcher (Beta) is now accessible for all smartphones with Android 11 and higher," Nothing writes in an email sent out on May 9, 2022. In addition, Nothing has improved the launcher by adding the app icon to the home screen, a new 'How to Set Up' page for users, and a new pop-up box for changing to the default Nothing wallpaper, among other things. The launcher's characteristics are listed below.
The Nothing Launcher was previously only available on a few phone models, including the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S22, Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 6. While the business has yet to provide any concrete details about its smartphone, fans may download the Nothing Launcher to get a taste of what the operating system would be like on the Nothing Phone (1).
