  • Nothing is rolling out Nothing OS 2.5.5 to the Nothing Phone 2.
  • This update brings ChatGPT integration, TrueLens Engine with Ultra XDR, many new widgets, and several bug fixes.

Nothing is fresh off its launch event for the new Nothing Ear (2024) and the Nothing Ear a, wherein they also announced a deeper ChatGPT integration within Nothing OS. This integration is rolling out through the Nothing OS 2.5.5 update, arriving first to the Nothing Phone 2, while it will roll out to the Phone 1 and the Phone 2a later this month.

While ChatGPT integration is the highlight of the Nothing OS 2.5.5, the update changelog for the Phone 2 is quite lengthy (h/t 1NormalUsername). The Nothing Phone 2 is also getting the “TrueLens Engine” with “Ultra XDR,” though unfortunately, Nothing did not elaborate on these marketing terms. If we can speculate, this could allow capturing photos with high dynamic range in the Ultra HDR format (or a similar HDR-focused format), essentially as a jpg file with an extra HDR gain map file.

Here are all the changes that users can expect on their phones after the update:

  • ChatGPT Integration: The following features are available with the latest ChatGPT version installed from the Play Store:
    • Added a new gesture option in Nothing X to start a voice conversation with ChatGPT for Nothing Ear & Nothing Ear (a). Coming soon to our other audio products.
    • Added new ChatGPT widgets to launch ChatGPT in different modes from your home screen for quicker access.
    • Added a button on the screenshot and clipboard pop-up to directly paste the content to a new conversation in ChatGPT.
  • More features:
    • Camera now supports Ultra XDR. To set, head to Camera settings > Ultra XDR.
    • Within the camera app, Photo and Portrait Modes now feature an HDR switch. Activate or deactivate via the settings at the top.

    • Added a Ring Mode option in Quick Settings for easier sound management.
    • Added a new Recorder widget for effortless audio recording on-the-go.
