Nothing Phone (2) gets an update with new features and bug fixes

If you have the latest Nothing Phone (2) that came out nearly a year ago, you are in for a treat. Carl Pei’s company is rolling out an update that fixes several issues and introduces some new features.

The Nothing OS 2.6 update is now available for the Nothing Phone (2) users

Nothing typically rolls out OS updates in stages, so not everyone will get the update at the same time. This method helps the company keep an eye on any problems and ensure a smooth, stable deployment. If you want to check if the update is available for your device, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings on your Nothing phone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on System.
  3. Select System updates.

Your device will then automatically check for a new OS version. If an update is available, you’ll see an option to download and install it.

The latest Nothing OS 2.6 update brings a host of new features like:

  • Support for deleting wallpaper history in Wallpaper Studio.
  • Enhanced initial setup for the Weather Widget/app with user-friendly prompts to add a specific city.
  • Support for displaying the CMF Watch battery level in the Quick Settings Bluetooth tile.
  • Optimized Low Lag Mode experience for Nothing earbuds.

But that’s not all. The update also includes several Game Mode enhancements, like quick access to the Game Dashboard by tapping the left sidebar. Plus, incoming calls during games will now appear in a pop-up view, and you can reject third-party app calls while playing, which, in my opinion, is pretty convenient.

Moreover, after the update, Nothing Phone (2) users can block notifications during gameplay to minimize distractions. The company also optimized the light notifications to display more information while you are gaming.

In addition to the new features and enhancements, the OS update includes several bug fixes. For instance, Nothing has resolved a peculiar bug that affected voice and call recording on WhatsApp. Furthermore, the update addresses other issues, such as anomalies during emergency calls in specific scenarios and problems with some apps using the Cloned Apps feature correctly.

Keeping your phone up to date is essential for protecting your device and getting the most out of it. Nothing promises its users 3 years of Android OS updates and 4 years of security patches. This means the Nothing Phone (2) will be supported until 2027.
