The new beta version of Nothing Launcher makes it compatible with all Android smartphones 11 and above. The opportunity to test the Android interface that will be found on the future Nothing phone (1).
The Nothing brand continues its path in tech. After the launch of the Nothing ear headphones (1), it plans to launch the Nothing phone (1) this summer.
If some characteristics of the phone have already leaked, we do not yet know much about what the Nothing phone (1) will be. An intriguing smartphone had certainly been seen in the pocket of Carl Pei, CEO of Nothing and co-founder of OnePlus, but nothing since.
Nothing’s app launcher already available
Since April 26, if you had a Samsung Galaxy S21, an S22, a Google Pixel 5 or Pixel 6, you could download and use the Nothing Launcher: the application launcher found in the smartphone. Quite simplistic, it is based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project), the open source Android operating system.
The Nothing Launcher is available on all smartphones running Android 11 and above
The brand created by Carl Pei, one of the co-founders of OnePlus, has made its Nothing OS compatible on all smartphones running Android 11 and above. The opportunity for many users to test and take control of the Android overlay provided by Nothing.
Nothing Launcher (Beta) is now available for Android 11 and higher. Release will be staggered across all devices in the upcoming days.

A rather empty application launcher
Compared to the end of April, not much has changed. The Nothing Launcher offers three widgets: two clocks and a weather widget. There is also a wallpaper. For the rest, there’s a feature to make app icons bigger, which can take up four spaces on your home screen. You can do the same with application folders, which then take up four spaces as well. Suffice to say that they are not really useful.
An absence of features that does not go over very well for the moment with Android users who have tested this application launcher. Indeed the Nothing Launcher received an average rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars on the Play Store. In question, the fact that this launcher is quite empty, they do not see what it adds to the experience they already had on their Android smartphone.
