There’s been no date announced for the launch of Nothing OS 2.5 yet, but we know it won’t be long as the company is in the process of beta testing on Phone (2). Nothing Phone (2) users now have the chance to get early access to the improvements that come with the new operating system, as well as an exclusive preview of Android 14.

Nothing OS 2.5 brings a host of improvements to the Glyph Interface, which includes Glyph Progress integration for Google Calendar and the ability for users to keep track of their upcoming events with a five-minute countdown via the Glyph Interface. The Glyph Timer can now be opened directly from the lock screen without unlocking and now supports time presets, so you can set it to your preferred duration. There is also a new Glyph animation when NFC is used.
Other improvements brought by the new OS include added options for the double-press power button action, improved reliability of the three-finger swipe gesture, Predictive Back now supported on all Nothing apps, and several updated status bar icons.
