When Nothing first talked about the phone it was working on, Nothing Phone 1, it also announced Nothing OS. The company said that no OS is “built on an open and seamless ecosystem that will effortlessly connect and integrate Nothing products and products from other world-leading brands, ”And announced that it would release Nothing Launcher in the Google Play Store in April. Now it is finally available for download, with the proviso that it is only for selected devices.
Currently, the launcher does not offer much more than any other, with basic features that you can find pretty much anywhere else. The most unique aspect of the launcher is the font, though it also comes with a wallpaper and two widgets. The two widgets you get are a clock and the widget, and they also fit the Nothing “style”. The weather app also supports both Celsius and Fahrenheit, and you can manually select a location for it.
At the moment, there is not much that the launcher really tells us about the upcoming phone that we did not already know. At the announcement made by the company last month, the company’s founder Carl Pei said that the Nothing OS skin will also include bespoke fonts, colors, graphic elements and sounds that will help differentiate it from the other Android skins out there.
To try out the launcher, it is available for download on Google Pixel 5, Google Pixel 6, Samsung Galaxy S21 series and Samsung Galaxy S22 series. The company also says that OnePlus support is on the way, even though we were able to install it and use it fine on the OnePlus 10 Pro. At the moment, though, it’s just a sneak peek at what’s coming, and it does not really offer anything that you can not get with other launchers so far.
