The Nothing Phone (1), when running on Android 14 Beta has a number of issues. Users should take note that registering fingerprints, using face unlock, and accessing glyph features are currently not possible. Additionally, battery sharing and certain camera features, such as Portrait Mode and slow motion, are not yet available. The Nothing Weather and Nothing X apps are also not pre-installed, and screen-casting to TV is not currently supported.
To address any potential issues, Nothing has provided a roll-back tool that enables users to revert their devices to a stable version of Android. However, users must be aware that using this tool will result in a complete data wipe, so it is strongly recommended to back up their data before proceeding. The company is also actively seeking feedback on the new Android Beta program.
The rollout of Android 14 Beta for the Nothing Phone (1) is an exciting development to watch. While leaks about the upcoming Nothing Phone (2) have already surfaced online, user feedback will remain a crucial factor in shaping the future of the company’s mobile technology. With its focus on pushing the limits of innovation and delivering an exceptional user experience, Nothing continues to demonstrate its commitment to advancing mobile technology.
