  • Nothing has brought Nothing OS 2.5.5 to the Nothing Phone 1.
  • This update brings ChatGPT integration to the company’s first smartphone.

Nothing surprised us last week when it revealed the Nothing OS 2.5.5 update for the Nothing Phone 2. This brought a number of additions to the phone, including ChatGPT integration. There’s good news if you’ve got the Nothing Phone 1, as the update is being pushed out to this device.

Nothing took to its forum to announce the release of Nothing OS 2.5.5 for the Nothing Phone 1, and the headline feature here is indeed ChatGPT integration. This includes ChatGPT widgets on the home screen, a gesture option to start a voice conversation in the Nothing X app, and a button in the clipboard/screenshot pop-up to immediately paste content in ChatGPT.

The update also brings several other features, including RAM Booster functionality and new options for customizing status bar icons. Unfortunately, this update doesn’t bring Ultra XDR support to the Phone 1’s camera app, as we saw on the Phone 2.

You can check out the full changelog below:
